Portland Obstetrical Negligence Attorneys
The trip through the birth canal is one of most dangerous journeys any of us ever make. Complications are not uncommon, but with careful monitoring doctors and medical staff can respond to those complications effectively, preventing injury to the mother and the fetus. Unfortunately, negligence or delay during any part of the process can have devastating consequences.
At Miller & Wagner, LLP, our attorneys investigate and present damage claims for obstetrical negligence resulting in infant brain damage, cerebral palsy and other birth injuries. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. With offices in Eugene and Portland, our lawyers represent families throughout Oregon and southwestern Washington.
Failure to Timely Deliver Causing Brain Damage in an Infant
Prolonged labor, decreased or increased fetal heart rate, decreased movement of the baby, and other symptoms are warning signs that something may be going wrong during labor and delivery. An emergency cesarean section may be needed to prevent injuries such as brain damage to the fetus.
If your child suffered a brain injury due to failure to timely deliver a baby, you may be able to recover compensation from the insurance company of the medical provider to deal with the significant challenges your child will face. Our lawyers will carefully review the facts of your case and consult with medical experts to determine if your child's injury was caused by preventable mistakes in the delivery process.
Oregon medical malpractice attorney Dave Miller has more than 25 years of experience with the investigation and presentation of negligence claims against physicians, nurses and hospitals.
