New Mexico Birth Injury Lawyers
Fighting for Families Dealing with the Effects of Birth Trauma
Each year, thousands of parents who are excited to bring a new child into the world face the unexpected tragedy of learning their baby suffered needless and preventable injuries during birth. Without proper communication from all healthcare team members, sufficient staffing, and proper training to monitor and respond to signs of distress, preventable but devastating injuries can occur.
Learning your baby has suffered a birth injury is devastating. We understand you want to do everything you can to give your child the best life possible. A birth injury may require ongoing treatment and even permanent assistance, which for many families is out of reach. We want you to know that if you are in this situation, there is something you can do.
If your family is struggling to understand how this happened to you, you may be able to file a birth injury claim. McGinn, Montoya, Love & Curry partners with medical experts to investigate how the injuries occurred and to hold the corporations and individuals who caused the injuries accountable. We care about the families we work with and do everything in our power to help them find justice.
Based in Albuquerque, our birth injury lawyers offer free consultations to families anywhere in New Mexico. Call us at (505) 405-4441 to schedule yours. Se habla español.
How Do Birth Injuries Happen?
Birth injuries happen when signs of distress are not promptly or properly addressed. In some cases, a doctor may need to intervene to ensure a baby is delivered safely—in others, an unnecessary or overly forceful intervention can seriously injure the baby.
Factors that often correlate with birth injury include:
- Cephalopelvic disproportion
- Prolonged labor
- Rapid labor
- Abnormal presentation
- Use of forceps
- Vacuum extraction

Why Make a Birth Injury or Trauma Claim?
Raising any child requires time, effort, and money. Finances are not a topic you can ignore when your baby was seriously and needlessly injured during childbirth. They may need treatment like:
- Extended intensive care
- Neurologic care
- Baclofen pumps
- 24/7 nursing care
- Lifelong physical, occupational or speech therapy
- Surgery or multiple surgeries over time
- Assistive devices
Sadly, many serious forms of birth injury will affect a child for the rest of his or her life. Some, like HIE, can continue to cause complications as your child ages. By making a birth injury claim, you may be able to receive compensation to cover the related medical expenses and hardships your family is now facing and will continue to face for years and years to come. We want to help you make sure your child has the best care—and life—possible.
Birth injury claims can also hold wrongdoers accountable. When you file a malpractice claim, you are not only finding justice for your loved one and family. By seeking justice, you help to prevent others from suffering the same way you have. Malpractice claims our team has litigated in the past have changed facility processes and protocols, training, supervision, and response times for the better. There is an opportunity to make a difference in your life and community if your child suffered a birth injury.
