Representing Families After A Birth Trauma

Birth Injury Attorneys


There is risk associated with all births. While most occur without injury, medical malpractice can cause injuries from oxygen deficiency, surgical errors, medication errors, and misdiagnosis. When a medical provider’s negligence causes injury to the baby or mother, the family can take action with a lawyer’s help. We understand that this is a very difficult time for your family. The birth injury attorneys at Gallon, Takacs & Boissoneault provide compassionate representation in medical malpractice cases. We help birth injury victims and their families hold negligent parties accountable.


Medical malpractice can cause a wide range of birth injuries to infants, including cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), and spinal cord injuries. These injuries can occur due to several factors, such as delayed delivery, improper use of forceps or vacuum extraction, or failure to monitor the baby’s oxygen levels during delivery. According to a 2020 study by the US National Library of Medicine, birth injuries occur in approximately 7 out of 1,000 births in the United States.

Some of the most common birth injuries to infants include:

  • Cerebral palsy;
  • Erb’s palsy/brachial plexus injuries;
  • Shoulder dystocia;
  • Brain damage;
  • Nerve damage; and
  • Forceps/vacuum injuries.
