Houston Forcep & Vacuum Birth Injury Lawyer
Attorneys Handling Medically Negligent Forceps & Vacuum Injury Lawsuits
Most Birth Injuries Involving Problems with Forceps or Vacuum Extraction Are Caused By Medical Negligence
As birthing techniques have improved, the risk to the child has dropped dramatically. Doctors may still use a vacuum extractor or forceps if there is some difficulty getting a baby through the birth canal. When used properly, these tools are very effective at completing the delivery. When they are not, serious damage can be done to the baby. Doctors are trained on the use of these tools and how they should be applied. If they fail to use these tools correctly, doctors should be held accountable for the damage they cause.

Tommy Hastings and his team at Hastings Law Firm have helped many parents of children who have suffered birth injuries involving problems with forceps or vacuum extraction. They have a long track record of success and have obtained millions of dollars in compensation for their clients all over Texas. With more than a decade of experience, they have the medical and legal knowledge to prove medical malpractice when it has occurred.
When you come to our office, you will find a warm, relaxing atmosphere full of people who care about what has happened to you.

This personal relationship helps us think differently about you and your case. Our lawyers put more effort into winning on your behalf because they know what’s at stake.
When Important Tools Are Used Incorrectly
Forceps and vacuum extractors are typically used in emergency situations. Doctors and nurses get specific training on how to handle each emergency and the techniques to use in completing a safe delivery. Unfortunately, many babies are still injured by negligence during these procedures.
The Most Common Birth Injures Involving Forceps & Vacuum Extraction
- Blood clots or hemorrhaging
- Marks, bruising or swelling on the scalp
- Facial nerve damage
- Spinal cord damage
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
Your child’s health and well-being are the most important things to our attorneys. We put all of our efforts into holding the doctor or nurse accountable for his or her actions and getting the compensation you will need to deal with your child’s life-changing injuries.
Members of the medical establishment hide behind carefully constructed excuses for the mistakes they make. By holding these people accountable for their negligence, you are not just benefiting yourself. You may also prevent this same injury from occurring to another family.
