Tom Rhodes Law Firm P.C. We Speak up for Those Who Cannot Speak for Themselves

San Antonio Birth Injury Lawyers

We Look Out for You & Your Family

Negligent or irresponsible medical care can dangerously injure an infant during delivery. Birth injuries constitute grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. If your child has been carelessly harmed before or during your delivery, our experienced and knowledgeable legal team of San Antonio birth injury lawyers at Tom Rhodes Law Firm P.C. can help.

Our legal team can assist you with correcting this injustice by pursuing compensation and holding irresponsible healthcare professionals liable for their negligence. Whether your child suffered birth trauma or serious long-term disabilities, we can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

Some examples of birth injuries include, but are not limited to:

  • Subconjunctival hemorrhage - Bleeding beneath an infant's eyes caused by broken blood vessels and evidenced by a red ring around one or both irises.
  • Fractures or bruising caused by forceps - Some deliveries necessitate the use of vacuum suctions or forceps. Improperly used, forceps can cause bruising, cuts, or red marks on the baby's skull - or even depressed skull fractures, which require surgical remedy.
  • Broken bones - Breech deliveries or other challenging births can result in broken bones, especially fractures in the collarbone or clavicle.
  • Traumatic brain injuries - If the infant is deprived of oxygen, whether due to blood loss or a twisted umbilical cord, he or she may suffer serious and irreversible brain damage and develop conditions such as cerebral palsy and epilepsy.
  • Cephalohematoma - This condition is characterized by bleeding between the skull and its outer layer. Jaundice can result from particularly severe cephalohematoma.
