Claims Involving Babies and Children

An ill child or baby is every parent’s worst nightmare.


The medical negligence team at Gregory Abrams Davidson have experience in supporting and assisting families in bringing a claim during what is a very difficult time.

Many of the claims brought on behalf of a child are linked to injury caused during child birth.

Pressure sores are a painful, debilitating and potentially life threatening condition.

Examples are:

  • Cerebral Palsy and other neurological injury caused by oxygen deprivation
  • Erb’s Palsy caused by an inappropriate use of forceps

For more information, please see our “Pregnancy and Childbirth” section.

In addition to injuries sustained during child birth, claims involving children include:

  • A failure to treat or diagnose a childhood medical condition such as cancer
  • A failure to treat or diagnose a fracture
  • A failure to treat or diagnose an infectious disease such as Meningitis
  • Negligently performed surgery
  • Medication errors
