Birth Injuries

Posted on Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

You loved and protected your unborn child since the moment you learned of his or her conception. You chose a doctor and hospital carefully. You worked to provide the safest and most nurturing environment for your baby. Nothing was supposed to go wrong. Now, the joy of the birth of your child is dampened because of injuries that occurred during labor or delivery. These injuries can have lifelong consequences.

The birth process is a complex medical procedure, and obstetricians, midwives, nurses and other medical professionals are trained to handle any complications that can occur along the way. When doctors, nurses and the hospital staff fail to do what they’ve been trained to do and a birth injury results, the consequences can be tragic. It is the last thing new parents expected or were prepared for, but we at Coker, Schickel, Sorenson, Posgay & Iracki are prepared and ready to help you and your family cope.

Some labor and birth injuries are unavoidable. Other birth injuries are preventable and are the result of medical negligence or medical errors. Attorneys at Coker, Schickel, Sorenson, Posgay & Iracki listen to your story and use clues and expert diagnosis to reveal the truth. We have a working relationship with recognized experts in the fields of obstetrics, fetal monitoring, midwifery, and labor and delivery room nursing. These experts review your medical records and determine the cause of your child’s injuries. Together we provide an honest assessment. Our attorney’s instincts have been honed by years of experience with complex medical issues and we pride ourselves on our aggressive defense of your child’s rights.

If your baby is seriously injured due to medical malpractice or medical negligence, we have the experience, expertise, and resources to construct and pursue a compelling case. We work diligently and effectively for a fair settlement, but we are armed with facts and evidence for trial. If your case goes to trial, our legal team presents the jury with your personal story. Your child is not a statistic and we work to ensure that your child is not viewed in that manner. Our attorney’s hard-edged legal expertise, combined with the human elements of your tragedy, synergize to form a compelling argument for maximum compensation.

Our primary goal is to obtain maximum compensation for your child. Care for a child with labor and delivery injuries can be extensive and lifelong. Continued assistance must be factored into the compensation in the event that the parents predecease their child. Coker, Schickel, Sorenson, Posgay & Iracki attorneys will carefully calculate recovery of damages to provide for your child’s future. Financial resources can allow your child and you to live a life that is as comfortable, productive, and meaningful as possible.
