Every parent has hopes and dreams for their children. These dreams start even before a child is born. When these hopes and dreams are shattered due to medical malpractice, the heartbreak, sadness and grief can threaten to consume you. One way to get justice and a measure of control over your life is to bring a lawsuit against those responsible for your child's condition.

- Brain injuries from birth. When a baby does not have sufficient oxygen in labor and delivery, he or she can suffer severe brain injury.
- Excessive newborn jaundice: When a child has excessive levels of bilirubin at birth, it can lead to severe brain damage, known as kernicterus.
- Obstetric negligence: When obstetricians make mistakes in the labor and delivery process, the result can be life-changing injuries or death to the child and/or the mother.
- Cesarean section injuries: A cesarean section is a major surgery. When doctors fail to handle complications arising from the surgery, mothers can be injured or even killed.
- Improper use of forceps: Doctors must exercise great care when using a forceps to deliver a child. The inappropriate use of this device can lead to lifelong injuries.
- Traumatic vacuum extraction: Often a vacuum extraction, when performed improperly or at an inappropriate stage of labor, can cause severe damage and trauma.
- Failure to recognize fetal distress: Fetal monitoring strips provide extensive information about your child's progress in labor. When medical professionals fail to act on signs of distress, your child may be severely injured or die as a result.
- Failure to recognize pregnancy-induced hypertension: High blood pressure, or hypertension, caused by pregnancy can injure both the child and the mother.
- Uterine rupture: When doctors and others in the delivery room fail to recognize the signs of uterine rupture, the mother and child can die.
- Failure to recognize and treat infant seizures: Infant seizures are often the sign of birth injuries that have been caused by medical negligence in labor or delivery.
- Prolonged rupture of membranes
- Neonatal sepsis
- Failure to resuscitate
