Birth Injuries Attorneys Empowering Victims Of Obstetric Malpractice
Hypoxia • Cerebral Palsy • Shoulder Dystocia • Erb’s Palsy
Lack of oxygen to the brain of an infant before, during or after the birthing process can lead to traumatic brain injury (TBI), cerebral palsy and other types of birth injuries. Naturally, heartbroken parents ask why. Beyond the sorrow, however, often there is a lifetime of therapy ahead. Disability and the loss of physical and mental function that a healthy baby would otherwise have is often compromised.
Thoughtful families seek out insightful legal opinions as well as logical medical explanations. To discuss your baby’s developmental delay, Erb’s palsy, or cerebral palsy and the possibility that the birth injury resulted from obstetric malpractice, contact us.
Timely Legal Action Can Offer An Injured Baby A Better Future
The Oklahoma birth injury attorneys of Maples, Nix & Diesselhorst Attorneys At Law have the experience, the knowledge and the boldness necessary to uncover answers and pursue the compensation needed to provide the best possible future for an injured newborn.
Although a child has the right to sue for birth injury until age 19 in Oklahoma, typically, parents bring lawsuits much earlier in order to be able to pay for the cost of raising a disabled child and to provide the necessary care and therapy required. A knowledgeable Oklahoma birth injury lawyer will ask whether birthing trauma was caused by an unnecessarily delayed C-section or any other lapse in care and treatment before, during or soon after birth.
