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.
Attorney Dave Miller has more than 34 years experience litigating medical negligence laws and has personally handled more birth injury lawsuits than any lawyer in Oregon who represents injured patients. His deep understanding of obstetrics and neo-natal medicine and ability to work effectively with the medical specialists who can comment on the performance of your labor and delivery team can give you a powerful advantage in establishing malpractice liability and recovering the damages you need for the extra support and treatment your child will require for years to come.
