Attorneys Handling Medically Negligent Forceps or Vacuum Extraction Injury Lawsuits

Many Traumas after the Use of Forceps or Vacuum Extraction Are the Result of Malpractice

Advances in medical treatments have meant that your baby is far less likely to suffer harm during birth. Vacuum extractors or forceps may still be used if the baby is not moving easily enough from the mother. The implements themselves can be helpful but they can also cause severe harm to the infant if they are improperly used. Medical professionals are well-educated as to how these implements should be used and when. If an implement is applied incorrectly and causes harm, the negligent party should be held responsible for the resulting injuries.

With an impressive list of successful verdicts and settlements, Tommy and his team have secured millions of dollars on behalf of clients throughout Texas.

Our office is a welcoming environment and our caring team is personally interested in your story. Our entire team will connect with you as we aim to understand how your child´s suffering has impacted your life. This ensures our staff becomes invested in your case and we want to fight hard to obtain a successful outcome for you.

Consequences of Improper Use of Delivery Implements

In urgent circumstances, medical professionals may decide that forceps or vacuum extractors are necessary. However, even though they are well-trained to use these tools, often infants suffer a birth injury due to a negligent mistake resulting from improper use. Some of these birth injuries are listed as follows:

  • Blood clots or hemorrhaging
  • Marks, bruising or swelling on the scalp
  • Hematoma
  • Facial nerve damage
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Death

Our attorneys believe that your baby´s health is the principal factor. Accordingly, we strive ensure that the medical professional responsible for harming your baby is held to account for their mistake. We do this by achieving compensation for you to assist with the costs of your child´s ongoing care.

The medical community tries to conceal the errors made by its members to avoid any liability. It is important that these medical professionals are held responsible for their actions to ensure they work towards a higher standard and hopefully stop another family from suffering as you have.

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.
