Houston Fetal Monitoring Injury Lawyer

Attorneys Handling Medically Negligent Improper Fetal Monitoring Lawsuits

injury case examples

Fetal monitoring is used during the birthing process to determine whether the baby is getting enough oxygen and blood. If a baby does not get these things before and during birth, it may suffer damage to the brain, including hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) that can lead to many lifelong health problems including cerebral palsy.

Medical staff is required to monitor the infant during birth to prevent these issues. If this is done improperly, or indicators of fetal distress are missed, your child can suffer serious, even life-threatening harm. If you believe your child sustained a birth injury from improper fetal monitoring, our attorneys can help.

Why Does Fetal Monitoring Matter?

Having external fetal monitoring on the mother’s belly and internal fetal monitoring on the baby’s scalp once the mother’s cervix is dilated to 2 to 3 centimeters gives doctors and staff the ability to track the baby’s condition during birth. By reading the fetal monitoring strip, they can tell whether the baby is getting enough oxygen or is in fetal distress. This information allows them to make split-second decisions, such as whether to do an emergency C-section.

If the fetal monitoring equipment is ignored, malfunctioning or is used improperly, the necessary information can be missed and your child’s life can be negatively impacted. Unfortunately, doctors and nurses rarely admit to these errors.

The medical establishment goes out of its way to avoid liability in these situations. Our lawyers know how to hold those responsible for your child’s injuries accountable and gain the compensation you will need to cover his or her condition for life.

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.
