Facial Paralysis Attorney | Birth Injury Lawsuit for Nerve Damage

Birth Injury Law FirmDeliveries can be a dangerous process. That is why most woman choose to give birth to their child in the safety of a hospital with medical doctors on hand to protect the life and health of the unborn child and the mother. However, in some instances actions of practicing obstetricians who have been given the duty to protect the health of the unborn result in serious birth injuries. One of the most common birth injuries caused by the medical malpractice of a practicing physician during delivery is facial paralysis also referred to as bell’s palsy. Common signs and symptoms associated with facial nerve damage at birth include uncontrolled drooling, incomplete closure of the eye, facial asymmetry, and lack of motion in the face.

Other serious birth injuries which are commonly associated with facial paralysis

In many instance newborn children are afflicted with multiple birth injuries. Some common birth injuries linked to facial nerve damage include

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Brain damage
  • Brachial Plexus injuries including shoulder dystocia
  • Blood clots
  • Bruising and lacerations of the face

Negligent use of Forceps During Delivery

One of the leading factors contributing to facial paralysis at birth is the wrongful use of forceps during the delivery process.  There are strict guidelines that have been put in place delineating instances where forceps should or should not be used during vaginal delivery. If deviation from those guidelines results in a birth injury to the mother or child, then a claim for medical malpractice will be established. Other factors associated with a heightened risk of facial paralysis injuries include

  • Large size of the child
  • Diabetes and other serious medical complications of the mother
  • Long length of labor
  • Negligent use of the ventouse method
  • Improper use of epidural injections during labor

DTLA Client Review

“I honestly cannot say enough good things about Farid. I never even truly became his client, as in I never paid him a single cent, and he helped me get my case settled with my current lawyer. I had accidentally contacted Farid’s firm in an attempt to contact my lawyer, who had ignored me for months. Farid contacted me himself within minutes of me talking to a live representative of theirs online (and this was really late at night, too).”
