Agoura Hills Birth Injury Lawyers
The birth of a child should be an unequivocally happy and exciting experience. Unfortunately, some children do suffer injury or illness during pregnancy or delivery. While some birth injuries are unavoidable, some result from the misconduct of medical professionals. We rely on OB-GYNs, nurses, surgeons, and other medical professionals at our most vulnerable, and we trust them with the things most precious to us. When they fail to hold themselves up to the proper standards of medical care, and our children suffer, they must be held accountable. The Halpern Law Firm is here to help you do just that.
The birth injury lawyers at the Halpern Law Firm have years of experience helping victims of medical malpractice get the compensation and the justice they deserve on behalf of themselves and their families. If your child was injured because of the negligent conduct of your trusted medical professionals, we’re here to help you get the closure and the compensation that you deserve.
How Doctors Commit Malpractice at Birth
A birth injury can result from many different causes. Unfortunately, there are common medical errors that many doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals make on a regular basis. Whether because they were overworked, understaffed, or simply careless, medical professionals do make mistakes in the delivery room and immediately afterward.
At the Halpern Law Firm, we help the families of people who have been affected by medical malpractice. We’ll work with you to get the damages you are owed for complications and other issues connected to birth malpractice, including:
- Improper use of forceps
- Delayed cesarean section
- Delayed diagnosis of fetal issues
- Medication errors during or after pregnancy
- Failure to identify and properly treat umbilical cord issues

- Improper reading or use of fetal heart rate monitoring equipment
- Failure to perform a C-section
