How is a Birth Injury Identified?
A birth injury is any type of harm or injury to a child before, during, and just after the time of birth. Birth injuries can occur in a very short period of time. A child can suffer permanent brain damage within six minutes from being deprived of oxygen and decreased blood flow to the brain during the delivery process.
It is important to understand that birth injuries are birth defects are not the same. They are two different medical issues. A birth injury happens when the mother is in labor or in the process of delivery whereas a birth defect is a health condition that forms while the child is still in the womb.
Factors That Can Contribute To A Birth Injury
When a doctor or health care provider fails to anticipate potential problems that are reasonably foreseeable and fails to intervene in a timely manner, it can cause irreversible harm to the mother or child.
Some ways birth injuries are caused by medical negligence include the following:
- Improperly pulling or twisting a child during delivery
- Failing to schedule and perform an emergency C-section
- Improperly using forceps, vacuum extractors and other birth-assisting tools
- Failing to monitor the child for signs of distress
- Improperly administering medications during labor
- Failing to diagnose maternal infections in the mother
- Failing to provide adequate prenatal care
If you think that your child has experienced a birth injury, we recommend that you contact a Flagstaff birth injury attorney. We can review the details of your situation and see if you may be able to pursue a claim.

Birth Injury Medical Conditions
Birth injuries often cause brain and muscle-related complications.
Some medical conditions associated with birth injuries include:
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Erb’s palsy
- Klumpke’s palsy
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)
If you believe your child suffered a birth injury caused by the negligence of a doctor or other health care professional, we encourage you to consult a licensed Flagstaff birth injury lawyer to determine if you have a case and may be eligible for compensation for ongoing medical expenses and future treatment.

Schedule a free consultation with one of our attorneys today to discuss the legal options available to you.
Deadline to File a Birth Injury Claim
Arizona follows a legal timeframe known as the statute of limitations, which sets a deadline for filing a lawsuit after an injury. If you fail to file before the deadline passes, you may be unable to file a lawsuit in court and obtain the compensation you need.
Most birth injury claims must generally be filed within two years from the date the injury occurred. However, there can be exceptions to this rule. You may be required to file before or even after this deadline. If you are unsure if you have a claim, contact a knowledgeable Flagstaff birth injury attorney from our firm today.

Phillips Law Group is a company that has taught me so many things. Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
