Attorneys Fighting On Behalf of Children and Their Parents
One of the most troubling types of medical malpractice cases involve birth injuries. It is very upsetting to learn that a baby has been injured. It is even more upsetting to learn that injury was caused by the negligent or reckless behavior of medical professionals. The medical malpractice attorneys at Ausman Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O. help parents take legal action and hold negligent parties accountable.
Birth injuries can take an emotional toll on the parents. They can also take a financial toll. Treating birth injuries can mean surgery, hospitalization, doctor's visits, physical therapy and medication. In some cases, medical treatment for a birth injury may be required into adulthood. And parents are left wondering how they are going to pay for it all.
If negligence by a medical professional caused your baby's birth injury, you shouldn't have to pay anything. Our attorneys are dedicated to helping parents recover financial compensation so they can give their child all medical care he or she needs.
There are many types of birth injuries. Common ones include:
- Erb's palsy
- Brain damage
- Shoulder dystocia
- Bone fractures
- Cerebral palsy
- Klumpke's palsy
- Facial paralysis
Our firm investigates the birth to find out what went wrong. We review medical records and consult with doctors and medical experts to find evidence that negligence led to your child's birth injury.
Examples of negligence can include improper forceps use or improper vacuum use during birth, a delay in ordering a Caesarian section or failing to recognize signs of hypoxia (when the baby's brain does not receive enough oxygen). Other examples include failing to diagnose or treat infections or neglecting to perform certain tests during pregnancy.
Experience delivers results
It is common for medical professionals, hospitals and their insurance companies to deny responsibility. We aggressively pursue your claim while building the strongest case possible and won't back down until we recover compensation for you. Many times, we can negotiate a settlement with the insurance company.
