Birth Injuries in Jackson, Mississippi

Medical malpractice surrounding the birth of a child is tragic but occurs frequently. Medical errors can cause birth injuries such as brain damage, cerebral palsy, bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, oxygen deprivation, forceps injuries, paralysis and other life-altering or life-threatening complications.

When a healthcare provider makes a mistake during the birthing process, they are legally responsible for their actions. Some of the most devastating birth injuries that can occur are the ones affecting the infants' brain. Oxygen deprivation or bleeding in the brain has an overwhelming effect on the baby's' brain and can result in mental retardation, autism or epilepsy. Decisions made during your labor and delivery are crucial to your baby's health and future.

If you are coping with the tragedy of a birth injured baby, the experienced birth injury attorneys at The Cochran Firm understand what you need and deserve at this time in your life and will work closely with you to develop a life care plan that will ensure appropriate care and a comfortable quality of life for your child for their lifetime.
