Causes Of Birth Injury

When the obstetrical health care system fails, babies born with birth injuries are often the victims. In many situations, the mother’s health is endangered as well as the child’s. Lack of communication among caregivers, lack of understanding of complex medical issues related to pregnancy and birth, and inattentiveness of overworked nurses, technicians, and obstetricians have all been identified as causes of birth injuries.

Experienced birth injury attorneys at The Lancione Law Firm are tough, aggressive and highly knowledgeable advocates representing babies and their families injured during pregnancy, labor or delivery. Call us at 440-331-6100 for a free consultation.
