Tulsa Personal Injury Lawyers

Birth injury cases are complex. In some cases, such as cerebral palsy, the problem can be caused by a delivery injury but it is also possible that it wasn't. Your attorney will sort through medical reports and work closely with medical experts to determine whether or not you have a valid case.

There is nothing more upsetting than injury to an infant before, during or shortly after delivery. If a child or mother has been injured during childbirth, you may have a claim.

Birth Injuries

Although many birth injuries are unavoidable, many others are due to malpractice. Here are some of the most common:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Uterine Rupture
  • Brain Damage
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Brachial Plexus Injuries
  • Oxygen Deprivation
  • Erb's Palsy
  • Fractures
  • Forceps Lacerations
  • RH Incompatibility
  • Infections

These injuries can lead to the need for lifelong care. Neurologists and neurosurgeons can be involved. There can be seizures, skull fractures, nerve damage and more. You may find that you need home modifications and live-in aides. All this costs money that may be beyond what insurance companies will pay.

You shouldn't shoulder the responsibility of this financial burden on your own. The responsibility should go to the person and/or institution that caused the injury. A good attorney can help you make this happen.

What Really Happened in the Delivery Room?

A good lawyer is like a detective. He or she has other people in addition to him or herself doing research on your case so that every angle is investigated. There can be clues hidden in the nurses' reports and the doctor's own report. There can be clues from things said, as well as things not said. Your attorney will wade through the miles of documents until the truth is finally discovered. This systematic approach will put together a solid case and the negligent doctor or hospital will have to pay for the damage they have caused.

If your family is mourning over an injury that happened during birth, the prenatal period, or the neonatal period, birth injuries attorneys can help you get to the truth. No amount of money will make it right, but if it truly was malpractice, you deserve to be compensated. Contact one of the personal injury lawyers in Tulsa for a free consultation.
