Birth Injury

The birth of a child is supposed to be a joyous occasion. Unfortunately, injuries to the baby or mother can mar the happy day.

Experienced Attorneys Advocating for Injured Mothers and Babies

At Swor & Gatto, P.A., our Minnesota attorneys have been practicing personal injury law since 1981. Our experience allows us to evaluate cases quickly and tell clients about their rights and options. We determine the legal strategy that will result in maximum compensation. Clients rely on us to get them through what can be an emotional and challenging time.

Examples of Birth Injuries and Their Causes

Our lawyers handle childbirth injury cases that arise from:

  • Poor prenatal care
  • Failure to monitor during labor
  • Failure to order a C-section
  • Incorrect use of forceps
  • Failure to intervene in a timely way
  • Prescription of dangerous drugs during pregnancy
  • Failure to identify and stop mother’s hemorrhaging
  • Lack of oxygen to the baby

Failures such as these can lead to permanent disability involving brain damage, cerebral palsy and other conditions in the child. They can also lead to infection and infertility in the mother. Death of either the mother or child may occur.

Act Quickly

It is important to act quickly in birth injury cases, as there is a limited time to file a claim. Our attorneys understand the importance of speedy action and are able to develop strong cases. We consult with medical experts and specialists to gather and interpret the facts and identify the liable parties.
