Get Help for Your Birth Injury Case

Fighting for Those Wronged by Negligent Doctors

The birth of a child is an exciting time. Many soon-to-be parents are also nervous, unsure of what to expect when they rush to the hospital. While the vast majority of babies born in the United States suffer no or trivial complications, some sustain serious injuries that place their development and very lives at risk.

Our birth injury attorneys represent families who have experienced the frightening and tragic consequences of obstetrical malpractice. When birth injuries could have been prevented had a doctor, nurse, midwife, or other medical professional provided standard care, we are here to help you bring a claim for compensation. You could be able to recover the costs of medical bills, future care needs, and other related expenses.

Call Bandas Law Firm at (505) 393-6303 to start your birth injury case. We are available 24/7 to help.

What Is a Birth Injury?

Childbirth is a dangerous time for both mother and baby, and obstetric doctors and nurses must carefully monitor various indicators of their health throughout the process. Most potential hazards during labor can be spotted early enough for a care team to mitigate the dangers. However, when a doctor fails to take action and the mother or baby is injured because of it, a suit for birth injury may be appropriate. Our firm can help families if they experienced negligence that involved or caused:

What Causes Birth Injuries?

Some birth injuries can be caused by a doctors’ failure to notice maternal risk factors early in the pregnancy. Others are caused by in-the-moment mistakes or negligence. Pregnancy and childbirth put both a mother and her baby at risk, and even a small error can have catastrophic results. Birth injuries may be caused by:

  • Improper manipulation of the baby’s body during delivery
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to properly monitor the mother or baby during labor and delivery
  • Failure to recognize fetal distress
  • Prolonged labor and delayed birth
  • Oxygen deprivation during and/or after birth
  • Delayed C-section
  • Failure to diagnose preeclampsia

Especially when the mother faces complications during pregnancy or childbirth, she or the baby could be permanently injured by substandard care. Do you think you have a birth injury case? Our attorneys want to hear your story if you’re looking for justice.

Know Your Rights if You’ve Been Affected

Learning your baby has been injured during childbirth is heartbreaking for parents. It can also place a lot of stress on your family as you try to figure out how you can access the care your baby needs while keeping up with other obligations, not to mention your expenses. Anyone in this position should speak with our team to learn whether you are eligible to file a lawsuit for malpractice. We can provide a free case evaluation, by phone or in person, to explain your legal options and what results they might bring.

Our team at Bandas Law Firm fights hard for every client. We are tough negotiators, and our litigators have a record of success that may convince a negligent doctor (and their insurance) to settle without a trial. However, if they will not offer fair compensation for their errors, we will file a suit on your behalf and fight for the justice you deserve.

Together, we can help your child have a more stable future. Call our New Mexico attorneys at (505) 393-6303 if you have questions about filing a birth injury claim.
