Birth Injury And Wrongful Death Attorneys
Complications can happen in the course of labor and delivery. How medical personnel respond to these challenges can affect your family for decades to come.
We represent clients with birth injuries in malpractice litigation involving infant or perinatal asphyxia including hypoxia (a partial deprivation of oxygen) or anoxia (total deprivation of oxygen), which can result in:
- Cerebral palsy
- Infant brain damage
- Developmental disability
- Mental retardation
- Wrongful death
If your doctor or nurse failed to recognize warning signs, delayed a c-section that could have prevented injury, improperly cleared a newborn’s airways or did not properly monitor fetal distress, then we want to review your infant asphyxia case and help you get the compensation you need and the answers you want.
