At Givens Givens Sparks, our legal team never wavers from our dedication to seeking full financial compensation for clients with children born with birth injuries due to medical malpractice.

If your child has a birth injury, you are urged to contact a seasoned attorney knowledgeable in birth injury litigation.
Birth injuries can be largely prevented by correct medical care. When prescribing drugs for the mother, it is vital that the doctor make sure that they will not affect the baby. Anti-depressants in particular have been known to harm babies. The doctor must also anticipate birth difficulties and perform a Caesarian Section when indicated. For example, if the mother has a small or irregular pelvis, it is possible the baby will be stuck in the birth canal and cut off from oxygen - this can result in brain injury. Babies forced to go through a breech birth can suffer nerve damage to the shoulder as the baby struggles through the birth canal. Where doctors misapply the use of forceps, a baby may suffer paralysis in the facial muscles.
