When injuries to the mother or child are part of the birth experience, it leaves families feeling traumatized and upset. Birth injuries to the child, resulting from errors in the delivery or during C-section, may lead to lifelong problems — being disabled physically or mentally.
You want to believe the doctors and nurses did everything right, but the evidence suggests otherwise. Often it is necessary to file suit against the providers or the hospital to help pay for the lifelong expense the child will face.Experienced Springfield, VT, Cerebral Palsy Attorney
There are many different kinds of birth injury. Some common, serious injuries include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder dystocia-related injuries, such as Erb's palsy

The most important consideration is that you are compensated financially for your loss, or for the short-term and long-term care your child may require. Compensation for emotional distress is another factor to consider.Serving All Vermont From the Town of Woodstock
