Nationwide Birth Injury Lawyers
The birth of a child can bring great joy to your family. But if your child is injured during birth, or if he or she is born with birth defects, it can be devastating. Healthcare professionals are responsible for your child’s safety and well-being before, during, and after birth, but sometimes their mistakes and negligence cause injuries and birth defects.
At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, it’s our goal to help families get the compensation they deserve after their children are injured or harmed during birth. We know that birth defects and injuries can lead to lifelong medical bills, treatment, and pain and suffering, and we want to help you get the money you need to pay for these expenses.

Common Birth Injuries
Many birth injuries can be severe and life-changing for both children and their families. Our birth injury lawyers are dedicated to helping families throughout the United States move past these often preventable injuries, such as:
- Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy occurs when an infant’s brain is denied oxygen during birth. Such injuries may be caused if the umbilical cord becomes wrapped around the baby’s neck, which can cut off his or her air supply. Babies with cerebral palsy often have difficulty moving and swallowing.
- Erb's Palsy
Erb’s palsy occurs when the nerves between a baby’s shoulders and spine are damaged. This may be caused if excessive pulling or pressure is used on the shoulders during delivery. Babies with Erb’s palsy may have problems with coordination and movement, and surgical treatment is often required.
Doctors and nurses must be vigilant at all times during childbirth. If they are careless during delivery or fail to notice or treat symptoms of complications in time, serious injuries can happen. At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, our nationwide birth injury lawyers are dedicated to holding negligent healthcare providers accountable for the injuries they cause.
