Houston Infant Brain Injury Lawyers
Attorneys Handling Medically Negligent Infant Brain Injury Lawsuits
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. We all 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.
