Our Attorneys Are Here To Obtain Justice If Your Child Has Suffered a Brain Injury During Delivery

An exciting celebration can quickly turn into a devastating and frightening time for you and your family if your newborn suffers an injury during delivery. To make matters worse, most of the injuries caused by a mistake or general lack of care during pregnancy and delivery are severe and irreversible. If your baby suffers an injury at birth, a brain injury, or both, you will need to make yourself aware of what your child will require to live as fully and as normally as possible.

Strong Representation in a Welcoming Environment

Tommy Hastings, of Hastings Law Firm in Houston, is a board-certified personal injury lawyer. He has had significant experience in dealing with birth injury lawsuits throughout Texas. He possesses a strong record of successful verdicts and settlements, securing millions of dollars in compensation for his clients who have suffered as a result of medical negligence.

Nothing can alter the emotional devastation you and your family have suffered knowing that your child´s injury was preventable. We understand that and accordingly, we have a personal interest in each client and their family. Some may view this attitude as too informal and potentially a weakness. However, we believe that it means our entire team is personally connected with you and your child´s journey and dedicated to fighting hard on your behalf.

Causes of Brain Injuries During Delivery

One of the most common causes of brain injuries in infants is a lack of oxygen to the newborn during labor or delivery. Tragically, this is absolutely preventable as there are common practices and modern medical techniques that enable medical staff to monitor oxygen delivery to a newborn during delivery. If the delivery team makes a mistake or are not paying sufficient attention, your child could suffer a brain injury which will impact them for the rest of their life.

Medical staff must monitor the mother´s blood pressure and rate of contractions continually throughout the labor to ensure the baby is getting enough oxygen. Common issues like uterine hyper stimulation and low blood pressure are preventable if monitored and the correct adjustments are made. If a mistake is made, the baby may not receive sufficient oxygen and brain injuries such as hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) and cerebral palsy can result within minutes.

We have specialist medical and legal knowledge and we work closely with highly regarded medical experts. Our firm is here to assist you to understand your legal rights and pursue compensation for the suffering caused to your child and your family.

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.
