Our Legal Team Includes a Medical Doctor and Registered Nurses
Our legal team includes an M.D. as well as experienced medical malpractice attorneys with a passion for helping families. We advocate on behalf of parents whose babies have suffered birth injuries through negligent prenatal care, monitoring during labor, or delivery procedures.
The Key Question is: Why did Your Baby Need Intensive Care?
Our investigation into your birth experience may yield important facts and questions such as the following:
- Your baby may have been having trouble breathing at birth: why?
- Your baby may have suffered a brain stroke, luco hemorrhaging, or a hypoxic event. What triggered such an event?
- Your baby may have demonstrated fetal distress during labor or delivery that went undetected for too long. Where were the nurses whose job it was to watch the monitors?
- Your baby's fetal distress may have resulted in a delay in delivery due to lack of an available doctor or room at the hospital. Why was this logistical problem allowed to take place when your baby's birth was known to be imminent?
These are a sample of the aspects of your baby's birth that we will evaluate regarding your baby's need for neonatal intensive care. Schedule a consultation with an accomplished medical malpractice attorney by contacting Patton Law Practice.
