Legal Experience And Medical Background
Founding attorney Jeffrey C. Anderson has the medical background and legal experience 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 compensation for the future medical needs of their child relieves parents of financial worries and allows them to concentrate on helping their baby.
If your child suffered an injury at birth, or if the mother was hurt because of medical negligence, you may have a strong case for compensation. We have helped many families obtain the payment they need to move forward.
Birth injuries also happen in VA medical facilities and military hospitals. If you need a Texas attorney to initiate a federal tort claim, we can help you file Standard Form 95 (SF95) and build a case for compensation.
