We’ve arranged our verdicts and settlements into groups based on the specific causes of each injury. To review our past cases, visit the following links:

  • Vacuum Extractor and Forceps Injuries
    • These cases involve traumatic birth injuries from the misuse of delivery assistance tools. Some resultant injuries include hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), fetal stroke, intracranial hemorrhages (brain bleeds), brain damage, cerebral palsy and other injuries and disabilities.
  • Overventilation Injuries
    • Overventilation and over-oxygenation cases often involve lung damage, decreased cerebral blood flow, hypocarbia, brain damage and other permanent birth injuries and disabilities.
  • Delayed Emergency C-Section
    • Delayed emergency C-section cases almost always involve hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) and fetal oxygen deprivation. Many babies delivered via delayed emergency C-section go on to have cerebral palsy, brain damage, intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), seizures and other permanent injuries and disabilities.
  • Failure to Offer C-Section Delivery

    • These cases typically involve fetal oxygen deprivation and hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), which often results in permanent neonatal brain damage, birth injuries and disabilities.
  • Mismanaged Infection
    • Mismanaged maternal and fetal infections such as chorioamnionitis, meningitis and sepsis often result in permanent neonatal brain damage, disabilities and birth injuries.
  • Failure to Prevent Early Labor
    • In these cases, our birth injury attorneys secured multi-million dollar settlements for babies with cerebral palsy, HIE, brain damage and other disabilities from premature birth.
  • Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) Delivery Injuries
    • These cases involve injuries from ill-advised vaginal deliveries in women who have previously delivered via C-section.
  • Labor-Induction Injuries: Pitocin and Cytotec
    • In these cases, our birth injury attorneys secured settlements for babies injured by the misuse of labor-induction drugs. Their injuries range from fetal oxygen deprivation to head trauma.
  • Failure to Treat Jaundice
    • These cases involve permanent birth injuries from kernicterus, a dangerous neonatal condition that stems from untreated jaundice. Because jaundice worsens into a dangerous condition known as kernicterus when left untreated, a medical professional’s failure to treat jaundice is always considered an act of medical negligence.
  • Mismanagement of High-Risk Pregnancies
    • These cases handle the mistreatment of mothers with obstetrical risk factors. Specific examples include mothers with histories or signs of preterm delivery and IUGR.
  • Other Medical Errors: Other medical malpractice cases our attorneys have won involve fetal monitoring errors, NICU errors, anesthesia errors and more.
