Baton Rouge Birth Injury Attorney

Birth injuries are one of the most common malpractice claims. Nurses, doctors and hospitals are all responsible for the safe delivery of a child and for following appropriate standards and procedures to prevent injury. Malpractice cases are common because any act of negligence during the birth can result in serious and permanent injuries, even wrongful death.

I am Vincent J. DeSalvo, an experienced personal injury and medical malpractice attorney with extensive experience in child birth injury claims and trials.

Birth Injury Investigations

If you suspect that your child's injury or death was caused by medical malpractice or negligence, it is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible. I work with medical experts in the field who will review doctor's records, consult with witnesses, and assess the evidence in your case. We will work collaboratively early on to determine whether the injury to your child was the result of negligence.

I am experienced in birth injury cases involving:

  • Brain damage, which can lead to a condition like cerebral palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia and conditions which can occur after, such as cord compression
  • Loss of limb or other serious injuries
  • Negligent C-section or other surgical errors
  • Failure to monitor or neglecting other prenatal warning signs

Do I Have a Claim? What Are My Next Steps?

When your child suffers a serious, permanent injury or your family loses a newborn to medical negligence, you want answers. I will inform you of your rights, help you explore your options, and aggressively pursue your claims.

These cases can become complex very quickly and often lead to a jury trial. I am experienced in the discovery process and taking on formidable defendants including doctors, hospitals, and large insurance carriers on behalf of my clients. When you want answers or a second opinion about your child's injuries, you need an experienced birth injury and malpractice attorney.
