Facial Paralysis and Birth Injuries
Our Lawyers Demand Justice
A baby's face muscles can become temporarily or permanently paralyzed before, during or shortly after being born. As a result, facial paralysis among newborns is a common (and severe) birth injury that affects many children.
One of the most common facial paralysis injuries sustained by newborn babies is Bell's Palsy. Children with Bell's Palsy cannot move one side of their face. This medical condition is often temporary, but can be permanent in certain cases.
If your child suffers from Bell's Palsy or another type of facial paralysis injury in Georgia, contact the Tyrone Law Firm, PC of Atlanta. Our experienced attorneys can work with your family to make sure your child's injuries receive the care and attention they rightfully deserve.
Facial paralysis injuries occur for many different reasons. Many doctors believe such injuries occur due to the following circumstances:
- Oxygen deprivation
- Infections and sepsis
- Exposure to herpes
Experienced doctors realize that preventive steps need to be taken during a woman's pregnancy to avoid facial paralysis or other birth injuries. That's why many doctors prescribe medications to prevent the transmission of an infection or herpes from the mother to the baby.
