Birth injuries are one of the most traumatic types of damage caused by medical malpractice.

What Steps to Take After You Discover a Birth Injury

If you suspect that your child has suffered a birth injury due to a medical provider’s negligence or carelessness, it is important that you take steps to protect your legal rights. Begin with gathering information and documenting the incident as best as you can, including:

  • Making a list of the contact information for your treating physicians and other medical professionals, including your OB/GYN
  • Making a list of the hospitals and medical facilities where you were treated or delivered your child
  • Write down the medical procedures that were performed or offered to you, including ultrasounds, measuring of fundal height, etc.
  • Create a timeline of all of the events that took place with as many details as you can
  • List any prescription medications that you were taking during your pregnancy
  • Write down any concerns that you may have had during pregnancy and labor & delivery

Once you have documented everything that you can, your next step is to contact an attorney who specializes in cases like yours. Because birth injuries fall under an extremely complex area of law known as medical malpractice, it is important that you select an attorney with experience and a proven track record winning 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.
