Birth Accidents

Helping North Carolina Families of Children Injured at Birth

A birth-related injury can occur during the pregnancy, during the delivery, or soon after delivery. It can involve an injury to the mother, such as a ruptured uterus from overuse of pitocin. More commonly it is an injury to the baby due to lack of oxygen or problems extracting the baby from the birth canal.

At the law office of Price, Hargett, Petho and Anderson we represent families seeking the financial support they need to care for babies who suffered birth accidents resulting in:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb's palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Brain damage from hypoxia (lack of oxygen)
  • Death of the child or the mother

We have a team of lawyers dedicated to helping families who have suffered due to medical malpractice. In birth injury cases, that negligence can result in a lifetime of challenges for a child. Proper compensation can help you provide the resources your child needs to overcome those challenges.
