Jackson, TN Birth Injuries

Birth Defect Attorneys Serving Jackson and West Tennessee

Bringing a newborn into the world is one of the most exciting and joyous times for a family. While families hope and pray for a healthy baby, birth injuries unfortunately occur from time to time. While we trust our doctors to provide appropriate medical care throughout the pregnancy and labor process, medical care providers can make errors. If you suspect your newborn or child has suffered an injury as a result of the negligence of a doctor or other medical professional, you may be able to recover compensation for your damages. The Jackson birth injury lawyers of Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz have experience handling personal injury cases of all kinds and are ready to help ensure your legal rights remain protected.

Birth Injuries and Their Causes

A host of different factors combine to result in birth injuries. Sometimes, these causes are genetic and therefore unavoidable. In other cases, however, these injuries stem from medical malpractice or a physician’s negligence. Common forms of birth injuries include:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Shoulder Dystocia
  • Brain damage
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Klumpke’s Palsy
  • Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PHHN)
  • Brachial Plexus
  • Death

Birth injuries constitute a wide range of potential injuries and deformities. Medical treatments for birth injuries vary greatly. An injured child may require surgery, physical therapy, in-home medical visitation, medications, and speech therapy for an extended period of time. In addition, your newborn or child may suffer a great deal of physical and emotional pain as a result of the birth injury. On behalf of Jackson residents, our dedicated birth injury lawyers will work hard to ensure that those responsible for your child’s condition are held accountable for their actions.

Damages Available in a Birth Injury Lawsuit

If your newborn or child suffered a birth injury as a result of negligent medical care, you may be able to recover compensation in the form of damages. These damages include both past and future medical expenses, in addition to more intangible items such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of earning capacity, and loss of enjoyment of life. At Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz, we have the resources necessary to develop the damages portion of a birth injury case, which often includes consulting with experts in the fields of medicine and economics. We also understand the intricacies of the Tennessee Health Care Liability Act, which includes satisfying the relevant notice provisions before filing suit in court.

Birth injury cases are often highly fact-specific and rarely straight forward. Each case is unique, requiring specialized skill, experts, and resources. It is therefore critical to consult and retain experienced counsel who understands these complications. Serving people throughout the Jackson area, our birth injury attorneys are sensitive to how birth injuries impact victims and their loved ones, and we have the expertise necessary to investigate, evaluate, and develop these kinds of cases. We are also equipped to handle wrongful death cases if the child passed away due to injuries sustained during labor, delivery, or soon thereafter.
