Causes of Birth Injuries
Birth injuries can be the result of a medical professional's negligence before, during, or after delivery:
- Before Delivery
When physicians fail to run tests or detect fetal abnormalities during pregnancy, they put newborns at risk of life-threatening complications.
- During Delivery
Forceps bruising, medical malpractice during delivery, and complications resulting from breech birth, fetal distress, or oxygen deprivation can lead to severe injuries requiring a lifetime of medical care.
- After Delivery
Newborns can suffer lifelong impairment when doctors and nursing staff fail to diagnose postpartum conditions or treat injuries sustained during delivery.
Stewart & Stewart Attorneys employs doctors and registered nurses to review our clients' medical records, so we can investigate the cause of your child's injuries and hold the parties responsible accountable for their negligence.
Fighting for the Compensation Your Family Needs
When your child is suffering from a birth injury, the costs of providing the lifelong care your child needs can be staggering. Our Indiana birth injury lawyers understand that your family is already dealing with significant emotional trauma, and we want to help ensure you don't have to pay out of pocket for someone else's wrongdoing.

Severe birth injuries can be painful, as well as disabling.
