A birth injury turns a joyous event into an occasion overshadowed by fear and worry. If your baby has been injured because a doctor, nurse or hospital failed to adhere to acceptable standards of care, you have the right to file a lawsuit to obtain compensation.
At Cooper Schall and Levy, we strongly believe healthcare providers should be held responsible for birth injuries caused by their negligence and carelessness. We pursue the maximum damages possible to help ensure your child receives the care — and to impress upon these professionals that their actions, or lack of action at a critical time, can cause irreparable harm to someone’s life.
Birth injuries vary widely in their form and severity. Some of the most common types of birth injuries are:

While some birth injuries heal naturally over time, it is critical you monitor your child’s health to ensure he or she receives the needed medical attention. Surgeries to repair nerve damage are more effective when a baby is still an infant, and early physical therapy helps weakened muscles develop to avoid placing unnecessary strain on healthier limbs. Our lawyers work with you and trusted doctors to diagnose your child’s condition and get the care they deserve.
