There are no words to describe the true extent of the lifelong pain caused by birth defects your child suffers because of medical malpractice, but the law can give your child a voice. It can help you obtain the justice your child deserves and the compensation you need to help them.
At Akers Law Offices, we give you advice about your options after the medical negligence of a physician, technician, nurse or hospital harms you or your child. When you have a case, we work tirelessly and efficiently to hold those responsible liable for their actions. Our lawyer has the experience necessary to investigate your case and present your claims promptly and persuasively.
"Negligence on the part of a doctor, nurse or hospital during pregnancy, while giving birth or in postnatal care can result in an injury that requires lifelong care. If you think something didn't go right with your baby, trust yourself. Call us for a free consultation." — Attorney JB Akers
We Work With Qualified Medical Specialists To Advocate For Your Child
Not every birth injury or tragic birth outcome is related to a medical error. You can seek compensation in cases where it appears that the negligence of an obstetrician, anesthesiologist, nurse midwife or another member of the delivery team resulted in a serious condition or disability in your infant.
Our ability to review your case with a qualified medical specialist can indicate whether you have a claim for damages. When you have a case, we know what is required to prove that a medical professional violated an applicable standard of care. We also know how to connect the cause of your child's injuries and family's damages to the negligence of the professional on whom you relied for a safe delivery.
We handle birth injury cases involving such serious or permanent conditions as:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb's palsy
- Brachial plexus
- Shoulder dystocia
- Fetal distress
- Brain damage due to negligent monitoring of vital signs, or improper use of forceps and vacuum extractors
- Negligent failure to order a C-section when indicated
- Group B strep infection
We'll Work To Maximize The Compensation Your Child Is Entitled To Receive
Because state law limits noneconomic damages in birth injury cases, it is essential to perform a thorough and accurate projection of the future costs of care and treatment for a child injured at birth. Our experience in handling proof of disputed damages claims in birth injury cases can help you and your family collect the compensation you will need for the proper care and comfort of your child.
