Types of Birth Injuries

Prenatal screening is used to diagnose medical conditions or disabilities. In order to safely deliver a child or determine if a cesarean section would be the best procedure, an obstetrician must be fully aware of the baby’s health while developing inside the womb. However, even when prenatal screening is done correctly, birth defects can still be caused by errors or negligence. Some of the most frequently occurring birth injuries include:

  • Brachial Plexus Injury
  • Shoulder Dystocia
  • Facial Bruising
  • Forceps Injury
  • Hypoxia
  • Bell’s Palsy
  • Brain Damage
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Fetal Distress
  • Placental Abruption
  • Spina Bifida

At Marasco & Nesselbush, we have successfully handled many birth injury cases involving each of the areas listed above.

Client Testimonials

"I am a motor vehicle versus pedestrian, accident survivor. Although struck in a crosswalk outside my clinic. As a physician, I’ve had to deal and negotiate with insurance companies in the healthcare arena my entire career. Consequently, I felt that legal counseling would be the safest and most prudent way to approach this unfortunate circumstance. Having researched the numerous legal offices on the internet, Marasco and Nesselbush had a very strong and positive presence, and I must sincerely and wholeheartedly agree.

The Firm, and my M&N attorney, represented me in the most professional and experienced manner, and with ethics of the highest standards, during a significantly emotional time in my life. My M&N attorney was knowledgeable and compassionate about my case and situation. He came to my home the very day I contacted his law firm, thoroughly explained every detail clearly and distinctly, and honestly answered all of my questions. He was genuine, personal, reliable, and patient, offering not only professional support and responsible legal counsel, but also friendship and guidance during a difficult time and situation in my life. He and his staff have earned my deepest trust and respect. I wholeheartedly recommend Marasco and Nesselbush."
