Birth Injury Lawyers
Fighting for families throughout West Virginia
Medical malpractice can be especially heartbreaking when it involves a newborn child. The negligence of medical professionals can lead to birth injuries that cause permanent damage. The medical malpractice attorneys at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC help families recover compensation for the emotional and financial toll these injuries can have.
There are two main types of injuries that can take place during the birth and delivery process. The first, injuries caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain, can result in lifelong disability and other complications. The second type, injuries caused by trauma, include cases when there is compression of the umbilical cord during labor or delivery, a prolapse of the umbilical cord during delivery, rupture of the uterus, or a separation of the placenta before delivery of the baby.
