Seeking the compensation you need to care for your injured newborn
A birth injury can occur before, during or after delivery and generally results in temporary or permanent disability. The risk of a birth injury can be influenced by the baby’s position during labor or delivery and the size of the baby. At Elk & Elk, we handle a wide range of birth injuries:
- Bone fractures
- Brachial plexus
- Brain damage
- Cerebral hemorrhage
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
