Representing Parents and Children in Birth Injury Cases
Through pregnancy and birth, a mother needs consistent care to ensure her safety as well as the baby’s. This same standard of care must also be maintained in the delivery room.
Unfortunately doctors, nurses, obstetrics specialists, and other providers can behave carelessly at this critical moment of a child’s life. When this happens, the baby can suffer lifelong injuries such as:
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Lack of oxygen to the brain (hypoxia)
- Undiagnosed infection passed through the umbilical cord
- Spinal cord injury
Medical negligence resulting in birth injury can take many different forms, from misuse of forceps or other equipment to failure to perform a necessary C-section. Whatever the cause, our Dallas lawyers will dutifully investigate the circumstances to build a strong malpractice claim on your behalf.
Compensation in Birth Injury Cases
Birth injuries and defects take a devastating toll on parents, siblings, and families. A child with disabilities could require extensive and costly care, and providing that care only adds to the physical and emotional stress of coping with birth injury.
Our lawyers believe that families in Dallas and elsewhere who suffer the aftermath of a birth injury shouldn’t have to bear this cost by themselves. We will pursue the maximum amount of damages on behalf of your newborn child and the whole family.
You may be eligible to recover compensation for:
- Physical and mental suffering
- Long-term medical care and therapy
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Forfeit of anticipated income
- Loss of the expected relationship with your child
Using innovative trial techniques and extensive contacts with industry experts, our Dallas legal practice has been ready for trial in birth injury and other complex litigation since 1973. We are proud to help grieving families find their way toward justice in cases involving medical negligence.
