Birth Injury

Even with the best laid plans for a healthy pregnancy and birth, accidents can occur as a result of medical incompetence. If an infant or mother has experienced a birth injury due to the action or inaction of a doctor, midwife, hospital or birthing center, you need to seek help and guidance of Michael Lamson, a professional medical malpractice lawyer in Houston.

Birth injuries can be catastrophic for you and your family and the after effects can be devastating as well.

Common birth injuries that occur are:

  • Brachial Plexus Injuries (BPI)
  • Perinatal Asphyxia – Lack of Oxygen
  • Hemmorages and Excessive Bleeding by Infant or Mother
  • Paralysis and Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Mental Retardation
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Bone Fractures
