- Birth Injuries May Have Been Caused by Medical Negligence
When a child is born, several things need to go right in order for both the infant and the mother to come out of this process unharmed. While medical professionals are highly skilled in regards to delivering babies, the fact remains that there are births where something goes wrong and the infants can be seriously injured as a result. If your child has suffered such an injury, you need to seek the immediate help of aPhoenix medical malpractice lawyers. In the meantime, below are a few common birth mistakes that could give rise to an Arizona medical malpractice lawsuit.
Birth Injuries in Arizona Resulting from Pre-Birth Mistakes
There are several injuries that can be inflicted upon an infant because of mistakes made prior to delivery. For instance, improper medications can be administered that cause an allergic reaction in the mother, doctors can fail to recognize the need for a Cesarean birth before the infant begins to appear and the failure to recognize infections or a fever in the mother can put the child in serious danger. All medical professionals involved in a birth can be liable for the injuries caused to an infant, and all are expected to perform to a reasonable level of competence.
Birth Injuries Resulting from Mistakes Made During Birth
Several different mistakes can also occur while a child is being delivered. Most of these mistakes include the physical manipulation of the infant’s body that is supposed to be done so that he or she can pass through the birth canal as quickly and as safely as possible. For instance, doctors can apply too much force when using the forceps while extracting the child, which can lead to brain injuries and damage. In addition, a child can be left in a position in the birth canal for too long that can also lead to brain damage.
Overall, birth injuries can happen, and many times they are the result of negligence by those who are supposed to ensure a safe delivery.

It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.

I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team.

I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.

Liz was great
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
