The birth of a child should be a joyous and awe-inspiring event. Unfortunately, the carelessness of a medical provider can turn labor and delivery into a tragedy instead. From failing to monitor the infant to incorrectly performing a cesarean section, medical negligence can cause serious birth injuries.If you suspect that your child’s birth injury was caused by negligent medical care or breach of professional duty, do not wait to get in touch with Riverside birth injury lawyer Steven J. Weinberg. He serves clients in Los Angeles and across Southern California.

Decades Of Experience On Your Side

In a free initial consultation, Mr. Weinberg will listen to the facts of your case and advise you about your legal rights and options. If you have a valid case, you can count on him to diligently advocate for maximum compensation for your family. He has more than 40 years of experience and a record of multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements.

Mr. Weinberg handles a full range of birth trauma cases in California, including those that involve:

  • Cerebral palsy — Cerebral palsy is a serious condition that can result from oxygen deprivation during delivery and labor. If your child is now suffering cerebral palsy as a result of medical malpractice during delivery, you may be able to seek compensation.
  • Erb’s palsy — If you believe that your child suffered shoulder dystocia and now has Erb’s palsy, you may have the right to seek compensation from the medical personnel responsible.
  • Fetal distress — Failure to monitor or respond to fetal distress can put the baby’s health and life in danger. Fetal distress is often a sign of oxygen deprivation.
  • Group B strep infections — Failure to guard against or treat Group B strep can lead to swelling of the infant’s brain, brain damage or even death.
  • Infant death — Have you lost a child due to medical malpractice? Claims for compensation are handled differently in wrongful death cases, and you need a medical malpractice attorney to help you maximize your results.
  • Premature delivery — There are several signs that a prenatal care doctor should be looking for to reduce some of the risk and take proper precautions to keep premature babies healthy.
  • Vacuum extractor or forceps injuries — Improper use of these instruments can cause serious harm to the child.
