When babies are born, you want to be able to count their little fingers and toes and know they are healthy—you don’t ever want to consider the alternative.
1 in 278 children have cerebral palsy.

Unfortunately, birth injury can and does occur when physicians fail to properly deliver a baby. Whether the doctor misused a medical instrument, used the wrong medication, delayed the baby’s birth, or ignored signs of complications, your baby’s life will forever be changed as a result of his negligent actions.
If medical malpractice was the cause of your child’s birth injury, the established law firm of Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough can help. We’ve practiced personal injury law for more than 25 years—we have experience and know how to win. We can protect you and your child’s rights.
Injuries suffered during childbirth can be severe and life-altering, for both a child and his family. Two common birth injuries include cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy.
Cerebral palsy is a static (non-progressive) condition that affects a person’s muscle control and movement. The injury can occur during pregnancy, delivery, or after birth, and is a result of brain trauma. Erb’s palsy, similar to cerebral palsy, is a birth injury that affects muscle movement and coordination. However, Erb’s palsy is caused when the nerves between the baby’s shoulder and spine are damaged.
Although it isn’t always the case, both conditions are commonly the result of a doctor’s negligence and could have easily been prevented.
