Los Angeles Birth Injury Lawyers


Birth injuries are tragic injuries that can affect innocent infants and their families for the rest of their lives. The injuries that a baby receives before, during, or after delivery can also have a significant financial impact, and take a large emotional toll on the child’s loved ones and family.


At McMahan & Carroll,  we have the experience and resources needed to build the strongest claim possible and maximize the compensation you receive. In fact, McMahan & Carroll  has obtained the largest Erb’s Palsy verdict, settlement, and arbitration award in California.



The two main circumstances that give rise to medical malpractice are claims involving trauma or excessive force to the infant and injuries due to a lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain.


Trauma Injuries: Trauma injuries include brachial plexus paralysis, Erb’s palsy, and cerebral palsy, among others. The Los Angeles medical malpractice attorneys at McMahan & Carroll have a vast amount of experience in these cases, and we know how to maximize your compensation and get the results you and your child deserve.


Brain Injuries: Brain injuries are a result of a lack of oxygen or nutrients to a baby’s brain during or before delivery. They can be caused by issues with the umbilical cord (e.g., prolapsed or compression of the umbilical cord), or be due to issues with the mother’s placenta being separated before or during delivery or from the mother’s uterus rupturing.


Examples of brain injuries include:

  • Hypoxia

  • Mental retardation

  • Developmental delay
