common forms of birth injuries

Birth injuries resulting from medical malpractice are among the most devastating injuries a family can suffer. Notwithstanding the injury caused to the newborn, the family must deal with the distress and emotional shock at a time they should be celebrating the new addition to their family. As a result of the birth injury, the family may have to provide lifelong care and support for a child with a physical or developmental disability. If you have reason to believe your child was injured during delivery due to medical negligence, we urge you to contact the experienced birth injury lawyers at Hastings Firm to discuss your options.

What to Do If Your Child Suffers a Birth Injury

If you believe that your child has been subjected to negligence or a lack of care and has suffered a birth injury as a result, you should correctly document the course of events as best you can to help protect your legal rights. Gather as much information as possible, including:

• The full names and contact details of all physicians and medical professionals (including your OB/GYN)
• All medical facilities and hospitals you attended for pre-birth treatment and the delivery of your child
• Details of the medical procedures, including ultrasounds and fundal height measurements, etc. Include details of all procedures performed and offered to you
• A detailed timeline of the time and place of the events leading up to and including the birth
• All prescription medications you were taking leading up to the birth
• Any concerns you felt during your pregnancy, labor and birth

Documenting as much as possible will help your attorney prepare your case. Once you have gathered the information, the next step is to contact an attorney who specializes in birth injury lawsuits. This area of law is highly complex and as such, you should choose your attorney based on their experience in obtaining successful settlements and verdicts for their clients in medical malpractice cases.

Fantastic law firm! Getting our negligence case settled took longer than originally expected but in the end the results were well worth it. Mr. Hastings and his office were always professional, polite, and thorough in explaining my case to me. Bug thanks to him and his staff for helping me through this ordeal.

Gus Morton

We couldn’t have made a better choice by hiring the Hastings Law Firm to represent us. The staff was always professional but they showed real concern for our case and made it personal. If you need a great law firm, I would happily recommend them.

Ernie Wolford

Tommy is a great guy, genuinely concerned about his clients. This is evident in not only how he runs his firm but the fact that he chose to focus on medmal, something other attorneys have abandoned. If you’re looking for someone that will fight for you tooth and nail, he’s your man.


Tommy Hastings and his staff provided a much needed voice for us during our crisis. His attention to detail went beyond the scope of simply practicing law. He is honest, informative, pragmatic and communicated well with us from start to finish. In a sea full of competing attorneys, Tommy has cast a reputation for himself as the very best. I highly recommend his services.

Kellie Rhodes

Tommy Hastings went above and beyond during my crisis. He genuinely cares about his clients and delivered a straight-forward, honest method to resolve my issue as quick as possible. If you want the best of the best then look no further. You’ve found him.

Kendall Webb

I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued, my nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Tommy Hastings and his staff go above and beyond! I couldn’t have asked for a better law firm or attorney!

Joy Love

I can’t say enough great things about this law firm. The staff was friendly and courteous every step of the way. They kept me informed and explained all of my options. Tommy was amazing to work with and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my outcome. If I could give him 10 stars, I would. If you don’t go with Hastings, you are doing yourself a disservice. Highly recommend.

Misty Peterson

I would highly recommend Tommy and his law firm. He represented us in a case where a simple surgery left my mother permanently disabled. His staff was very professional and diligent and kept me well informed throughout the case. In the end we are happy with the settlement she received and feel lucky to have had Tommy as our attorney.

Earica Robert

My brother had an unnecessary surgery which left him with severe neurological issues. We called several attorneys but chose Hastings because of their focus on cases like this. While the case is still pending, we’ve already received a settlement offer that was very close to what we were looking for. Many thanks go out to Tommy and his great team!

Devin Schumacher

We’re blessed to have found the Hastings law firm. Tommy and Greg were outstanding! Both attorneys were very responsive, professional, and helpful with any questions we had about our case. Their entire staff went above and beyond to keep us updated and most of all, calm. My family feels as though we have been made (mostly) whole again. Thank you both for your hard work.
