Lawyers Experienced In Various Birth Injury Claims

Our attorneys have handled many claims involving birth injury, including:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb's Palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Umbilical cord injuries
  • Brain damage due to lack of oxygen
  • Failure to perform a timely C-section
  • Failure to respond promptly to changes in a baby's condition before or shortly after birth

Mismanagement at any stage of pregnancy, labor, or the delivery process can lead to birth injuries such as these. If you believe your child suffered due to the improper action of your doctor, nurse or midwife, the involvement of an experienced birth injury law firm is essential.

We Have Trained Attorneys And Registered Nurses On Staff To Assist You

Our medical malpractice team, with two registered nurses and skilled attorneys, consults frequently with medical experts throughout the United States. We determine how the injury to your baby might have been prevented. We gather medical records, interview relevant medical personnel with information about your treatment and develop a case for compensation.

We Can Also Investigate Medical Errors That Caused Injury To The Mother

Some medical errors can lead to injuries to both mother and child. Anesthesia errors, such as misplacement of an epidural, can lead to nerve damage in the mother. Overmedication of the mother can slow labor, increasing the risk to the baby and causing damage to the mother's nervous system. Our birth injury lawyers and nurses have developed and resolved complex medical malpractice cases involving multiple medical errors and injuries to the baby and mother.
