At the Killino Firm, we know birth trauma. We recognize that serious birth trauma can have lasting effects including permanent disabilities and physical disfigurement that may require life-long care and expensive treatment. We also recognize the emotional pain and suffering associated with such injuries. As a result, we are devoted to helping parents and families of infants who suffer injuries during the birthing process recover any compensation they are entitled to.
Because the birth process is full of compressions, contractions, torques and traction, it is not uncommon for infants to sustain minor trauma when outside complications arise. In many cases, those outside complications cannot be prevented. Large babies, for instance, have an increased risk of birth trauma than others.
However, in the event that a mistake made by a doctor, nurse, or another healthcare provider, has something to do with the injury, the infant and family will qualify to seek justice and recover compensation for their pain and suffering. At the Killino Firm, we fight zealously on behalf of injured infants and their families and will make sure that the responsible parties are held accountable.

Types of Birth Trauma
Birth trauma is defined as injuries resulting from mechanical forces such as traction or compression during the birthing process. While statistics show that birth trauma accounts for less than 2 percent of neonatal and stillbirths in the U.S., severe trauma can dramatically affect a family’s life forever.
In many cases, injuries caused by birth trauma are minor and will heal on their own. Facial bruising and swelling, for instance, will go away after a few weeks. More severe instances of birth trauma include:
- Bone fractures
- Brachial plexus
- Brain injuries
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Head/back injuries
- Nerve damage
- Organ damage
- Spinal cord injuries
