Birth defects attorneys in Columbia with an understanding of numerous types of birth injuries

Parents of children who suffer birth injuries can expect to face significant medical costs, a reduced life expectancy of the child or possible death of the child during delivery. With the assistance of our Columbia personal injury law firm you may obtain compensation for medical costs and emotional trauma that come with birth defects such as:

  • Cerebral palsy. One of the most common birth defects, cerebral palsy refers to a variety of disorders that affect the brain. The disorder results from a lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain during labor, and has long-lasting effects throughout the child’s life that require constant care.
  • Erb’s palsy. Also referred to as brachial plexus palsy, this defect involves the paralysis of the child’s arm due to injuries in several vital nerves. This injury generally occurs as the result of a difficult childbirth.
  • Oxygen deficiencies. An oxygen deficiency can cause irreparable brain damage, significant organ damage or even death. Children subjected to oxygen deficiencies may need continual care throughout adulthood.


The causes of these conditions vary from case to case. Sometimes they can be avoided, while other times they result from incompetence on the part of the doctor. In any case, we fight to ensure that you receive the compensation you need to properly care for your child.
