Helping After Birth Injuries and Obstetrical Malpractice

The birth of a child should be a joyous event for everyone involved. However, despite medical advances, the process of labor and delivery can be risky for both mother and child under the best of circumstances. And when problems arise because of negligence or misconduct by the medical team, the results can be devastating.

Causes of maternal injury and birth injury

Conditions such as these have many causes, including failure to monitor, failure to timely deliver, failure to act on problems revealed by a heart rate monitor, misdiagnosis of uterine rupture and failure to identify maternal problems in the pre-natal period.

Legal experience and medical background = a strong case

Our attorney has the medical background and legal experience both to understand the issues in each case and to make a strong claim for compensation. Parents may need extensive resources after the birth of an injured baby. Obtaining payment for the future medical needs of their child relieves parents of financial worries and allows them to concentrate on helping their baby.

If your baby suffered an injury at birth, or if the mother was hurt because of medical negligence, you may have a case for compensation. We have helped many families obtain the payment they need to move forward. Contact our San Antonio lawyer to learn if we can help you.

If you need a Texas attorney to initiate a federal tort claims action, our office can help you file Standard Form 95 (SF95).
