If Your Baby is Suffering From a Brain Injury Received During Birth, Our Attorneys Will Pursue Justice For You

The birth of a child is supposed to be a joyous occasion. This joy can quickly turn to fear and heartache if your baby is injured during delivery. The common thread uniting child birth injuries and brain injuries, whether caused by poor prenatal care or mistakes by medical professionals, is that they are irreversible in most cases. If your child is suffering from a birth injury, a brain injury or both, it is important to be fully aware of what your child needs to live as normal a life as possible.

Effective Representation in a Caring Atmosphere

Tommy Hastings, of Hastings Law Firm in Houston, is a board-certified personal injury lawyer experienced in handling birth injury cases across Texas. He has a long track record of success and has obtained millions of dollars in compensation through verdicts and settlements for his clients who have been harmed by medical negligence.

We understand how devastating it is for you and your family to know that your baby’s birth injury could have been prevented. Our delivery injury law firms in Houston Texas care about what happens to you and your child. While many may consider this relaxed attitude too informal, we find that it helps us think differently about you and your case. Knowing you, your story and how your baby’s birth injury has affected all of you helps us fight harder on your behalf.

How Brain Injuries Can Occur During Birth

A common cause of infant brain damage occurs when a baby does not get enough oxygen during labor and delivery. Modern medical techniques allow for monitoring of oxygen delivery to a baby during birth, and this type of injury is entirely preventable. Unfortunately, if a member of the delivery team is not paying attention, it can affect your baby for the rest of his or her life.

Doctors and nurses are required to pay careful attention to a mother’s blood pressure and rate of contractions during birth to prevent lack of oxygen to the baby. Common causes of lack of oxygen include uterine hyper stimulation and low blood pressure in the mother, both of which should be monitored and can be adjusted to ensure that the baby gets enough oxygen. If a baby does not get enough oxygen during birth, the following brain injuries can result within minutes:

  • Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)
  • Cerebral palsy

Because of our in-depth medical knowledge, our work with medical experts and our familiarity with the court system, our attorneys are able to help you understand what happened to your baby and why, as well as pursue compensation for the harm done to your child.

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.
