Personal Injury in the Delivery Room
Nothing is more heartbreaking than the pain and suffering of a child. It is regrettable that some unfortunate newborns face an impossible battle against disease or genetics, never getting the opportunity for a full life. However, it is even more regrettable that some newborns will have their futures jeopardized due to the preventable negligent acts of doctors.
Failure to follow standard treatment procedures can lead to a number of serious infant related injuries. A newborn is practically helpless and requires the care, expertise and safety of a trained physician. We, here at The Law Offices of W.T. Johnson have helped countless families in birthing personal injury claims and are ready to help you as well.
Birth Injury Personal Injury Claims
If the injury that befell your child was preventable, our legal team will uncover the truth and expose the negligent acts that lead up to the accident. We will exhaust every resource we have to determine who is at fault and what could have been done. We review monitoring procedures, videotape footage, hospital records and will speak with any and all nursing and hospital staff we can.
The attorneys at The Law Offices of W.T. Johnson have helped clients in a wide range of birthing related injuries including:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brain damage
- High blood pressure
- Fetal acidosis
- Brachial plexus injury
Before a medical malpractice suit can be filed, a preliminary investigation must first find evidence of negligence. We make sure to take care of all necessary paperwork and documentation in our efforts to expose negligence to the court. We prepare every case to go to trial, though a settlement may still be reached.
Birth Injury Costs
Many birthing injuries involve oxygen deprivation, which leads to brain damage and disability later on in life. Caring for a mentally or physically disabled child can be a difficult and costly. In addition to working toward fair compensation, our team will also help you to plan for and secure financial security for your child’s future.
