Dallas Birth Injury Attorneys

Many times, cerebral palsy or other birth injuries could not have been prevented. However, when a birth injury is not the result of a birth defect – but rather the result of medical negligence – we hold the doctors or other medical professionals accountable. At Chaiken & Chaiken, P.C., we empathize with new parents facing the realization that their child will not live a normal life. We work to recover compensation and obtain justice.  Contact our birth injury attorneys for guidance with a medical negligence case throughout the state of Texas.

Many birth injuries are the result of hypoxia (oxygen deprivation). Insufficient oxygen to the brain can cause permanent brain damage. A newborn infant or unborn fetus is intensely vulnerable. Only moments of doctor negligence can change the child’s life forever. The child may experience developmental delays, cognitive problems, motor skill deficiencies, and other challenges. At Chaiken & Chaiken, our birth injury attorneys work hard to uncover the areas of negligence which may have led to such a serious head injury or birth injury. This medical negligence may involve:

  • Negligent fetal monitoring
  • Inadequate follow-up care
  • Inadequate monitoring of the pregnancy
  • Failure to recognize abnormal positioning of the fetus (such as a breach birth)
  • Failure to recognize an umbilical cord around the infant’s neck
  • Failure to perform a timely C-section
  • Impulsive vacuum extraction
