We are here to guide you through the process, helping you decide if, how, and importantly, when you may want to proceed and what damages to seek. Contact us today and let us help you recover compensation for your child’s birth injury.

Helping Your Through a Difficult Time With Compassion and Conviction

We are here to focus on the legal process so you can focus on helping your child recover from a birth injury. We believe it is our duty to make sure medical professionals are held accountable for their actions when they have breached their duty of care to a patient, especially a child. Our medical malpractice trial attorneys have experience handling all types of birth injury cases, including:

  • Delivery injuries related to the use of forceps
  • Oxygen deprivation, hypoxia
  • Shoulder dystocia and other types of nerve damage
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Cerebral palsy and other forms of brain damage
  • Complications from cesarian sections (c-sections) and vaginal deliveries including bruises, broken bones, fractures
  • Group 5 strep and other infections contracted during a hospital stay
  • Failure to properly read reassuring/non-reassuring heart rate strips resulting in fetal distress complications upon delivery

We believe a thorough investigation and aggressive approach is the best way to hold negligent parties responsible, prove medical malpractice and recover damages. We will employ experts to evaluate medical records for errors in treatment and interview everyone who was involved in your child’s delivery that lead to the birth injuries. We will pursue your case all the way to trial, if necessary, seeking the maximum compensation possible.
