Dallas Birth Injury Lawyer
Fort Worth Cerebral Palsy Attorney
Whether your baby survived a serious injury or died as a result of delivery room error, your sorrow is immeasurable and you deserve to know the truth. Your family may face extraordinary expenses for a very long time to account for medical expenses, therapy, special education and special equipment. The intangible losses are beyond any dollar amount, but meaningful compensation for victims can help families move on and serve as a future deterrent for negligent health care providers.
Contact an experienced birth injury medical malpractice lawyer at the law offices of Frenkel & Frenkel to discuss your baby's injuries. We can help you understand your legal options when the negligence of an OB-GYN or other medical personnel interfered with the safe delivery of your baby.
Doctors and hospitals are often not forthcoming with the real reason for a birth injury even when their own records plainly reveal such mistakes as the following:
- Failure to anticipate birthing difficulties
- Failure to properly monitor the baby's vital signs during labor
- Failure to perform a C-section in a timely manner when warranted
- Failure to take prompt remedial action such as implementing manual rotation to relieve a baby whose shoulder is stuck during delivery
The consequences of mistakes during prenatal care, labor or delivery can be devastating for a lifetime. Common birth injuries include the following:
- Brachial plexus injury
- Cerebral palsy
Even if your child is now in school but you have reason to suspect that an irregularity in the birthing process is the reason for an emerging learning disability, share your concerns with a birth injury lawyer. Learn how an investigation — even years after the birth — may open the doors to compensation that your son or daughter needs to pay for tutoring or other accommodations.
