Pursuing Justice for Victims of Birth Injury in New Mexico

Coming Together To Fight For Victims & Families

The birth of a child is an exciting time. Many soon-to-be parents are also nervous, unsure of what to expect and how the birthing process will go. While the vast majority of babies born in the United States suffer no or trivial complications, there are some who sustain serious injuries that place their development and very lives at risk.

Our New Mexico birth injury attorneys represent families who have experienced the frightening and tragic consequences of obstetrical malpractice. When birth injuries could have been prevented had a doctor, nurse, midwife, or other medical professional provided standard care, we fight for fair compensation to provide for the child’s lifelong care and security. We are experienced and nationally recognized in this highly complex area of law.

What Causes Birth Injuries?

Cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries, hypoxic-anoxic brain injuries, fetal distress, cephalohematoma, and other birth injuries may have specific causes that are linked to human error or malpractice. When this occurs, they can be held accountable for resulting medical expenses, ongoing care, emotional trauma, and other damages.

Some potential causes of birth injuries include:

  • Improper manipulation of the baby’s body during delivery
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to properly monitor mother or baby during labor and delivery
  • Failure to recognize fetal distress
  • Prolonged labor and delayed birth
  • Oxygen deprivation during and after birth
  • Delayed C-section
  • Failure to diagnose preeclampsia

The New Mexico birth injury lawyers at Tom Rhodes Law Firm are known – and feared – by defense lawyers and insurance companies. We have instant credibility when a medical professional or facility’s insurance provider hears we have taken on a claim against them. This can help us secure settlements without having to go to trial, but if an insurance provider simply will not comply, we have the resources to pursue litigation and will fight for maximum compensation.


Together, we can help your child face a more stable future. Call (505) 544-4088 today.
