Forceps Delivery Brain Damage Attorneys
For over 30 years, the law firm of Fitzgerald & Fitzgerald has been committed to fighting for children with birth injuries, including injuries caused by a forceps delivery. In one forceps delivery case, our birth injury lawyers represented a child who was born using Kielland forceps during a mid-forceps procedure for deep transverse arrest. Fitzgerald & Fitzgerald argued that the forceps delivery caused brain damage with right-side hemiparesis and encephalomalacia with enlargement of the left lateral ventricle. The jury agreed and awarded the injured child $2,400,000.

Forceps Delivery and Cerebral Palsy
Trauma to a child's head caused by a difficult forceps or vacuum delivery can cause cerebral palsy. This is preventable if a medical professional acts with prudence and care during delivery to perform a forceps delivery in a safe manner and to all that is necessary to prevent the need for a forceps delivery.
