YOUR CHILD NEEDS MONEY FOR A LIFETIME OF NEEDS

I Want To Help

NEW LAW HAS CUT VERY SHORT THE TIME TO FILE A BIRTH INJURY CLAIM

If your baby possibly suffered a birth injury you need an experienced birth injury attorney to trace the brain injury to the negligence of the delivery team. Seizures shortly after birth indicate a brain injury at birth; however seizures are not present in all birth injury cases. The 2014 revision of "Neonatal Encephalopathy and Neurological Outcome" was not welcome by child birth teams. I understand why. They can no longer get away with causing the injuries they used to.

If your infant has cerebral palsy and other lifelong disabilities, your child will need money for a Life Care Plan to provide for their basic needs and quality of life. You need to hire a good Birth Injury Lawyer with experience in birth injury cases IMEDIATELY! You can no longer wait years to file a claim.

A C-Section (cesarean delivery) at the proper time could have prevented all the damage, except they missed that too! They also missed a reduced or absence of fetal heart rate variability (FHR). If your baby was place in NICU, there was a problem and you may have a good birth injury law suit.

Other errors (birth injury medical malpractice) include misuse of Pitocin (PIT), Oxytocin, premature rupture of membrane, being sent home after water broke, being sent home while in labor, failure to give antibiotics during pregnancy, poor management of hyper stimulation, cord prolapse, placental abruption, preterm labor, untreated infection, improper use of vacuum extractor, shoulder Dystocia which can cause the baby to be stuck in the birth canal too long and if not resolved, brachial plexus birth injury, cerebral palsy birth injury, and traumatic birth injury. Magnesium sulfate can kill a mom! Heparin can kill a baby.

I have also won cases of Army medical malpractice under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) for the birth injury of a baby born at a military hospital.

A nurse midwife should always have a doctor overseeing the delivery as she is not qualified to deliver babies if there is any complication in the pregnancy or birth; and never for a diabetic mother.

Signs of Birth Injury

Parents are NEVER told that their baby sustained an asphyxia injury (lack of oxygen) so severe that it resulted in permanent brain damage. This brain injury is sometimes called fetal distress, or a difficult birth. The truth is that the delivery team or one of its members did not do their job properly resulting in birth injury malpractice or cerebral palsy medical malpractice and causing (HIE) hypoxic ischemic injury to the brain of your baby. A "floppy baby" or a baby with low APGAR scores has usually sustained a birth injury. About 80 % of developmental delays are caused by negligent birth injury. Look for:

.

  • Any Seizures even if controlled by Medication.
  • Low APGAR scores
  • Speech delays or delays in making normal baby sounds.
  • Your Baby does not smile by about 2 months of age.
  • You are told your baby was stuck in the birth canal too long.
  • Delay in sucking more than 24 hours.
  • Problems eating or keeping food down.
  • Vomiting or spiting up a lot after most feedings.
  • Arching back or throwing head back when on mother's shoulders.
  • Arching back or throwing head back when lying on side.
  • Unusual motion of arms or legs or "Bicycling Legs"
  • Spells of inconsolable crying.
  • Difficulty Breathing.
  • Your Infant was placed in the NICU.
  • Medical staff told you this is a birth defect.
  • Medical staff told you this is a metabolic abnormality.
  • Delay in rolling over or sitting up.
  • Delay in crawling.
  • Not walking at 1 year of age.
  • Creeping on hands / knees and not crawling
  • MRI Shows Brain Damage to your Baby.
  • The Myelination process is abnormal.
  • Decelerations in the FHR (Decelerations in the fetal heart rate)
  • Your baby's heart rate was low during birth.
  • Mom prescribed antidepressants last 6 months of pregnancy.
