Dallas County Birth Injury Lawyer
An infant was born prematurely and admitted to the NICU of a Dallas hospital. While the NICU was supposed to offer the highest standards of neonatal care to improve the infant’s health, it did the opposite. The infant caught a bacterial infection there, which caused alleged brain damage and the loss of an eye. These serious injuries will impact the child’s entire life, causing her to need extensive medical care, physical therapy and special resources.
Her parents turned to my Dallas law firm — the Law Offices of James R. Tucker, P.C. — for representation in a birth injury lawsuit. I obtained a substantial multi-million confidential settlement for the baby that will be more than sufficient to provide for her medical care and therapy for life. Her parents no longer have to worry about the financial cost of their daughter’s care. They can make sure that she gets the treatment she needs for her health issues without any monetary constraints. I also represented several other infants who were infected in the NICU who collectively also received a substantial confidential multi-million dollar settlement.
At my Dallas law firm, I represent infants who have experienced birth injuries, including the ones listed below:
- Cerebral palsy
- Brain injury
- Temporary or permanent paralysis
- Fractured collarbone
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brachial plexus palsy
- Oxygen deprivation
Doctors, nurses, midwives and health care facilities can all contribute to birth trauma by taking negligent actions or by failing to act. Often, they fail to respond appropriately to unexpected bleeding, umbilical cord cutting off the oxygen supply to the baby or other forms of fetal distress.
In some cases, medical equipment can malfunction and medication errors or mistakes can be the cause of a birth injury as well. Many parents are reluctant to seek legal help when they suspect that their child was injured at birth or died because of medical or nursing negligence. This feeling is understandable, but here are some things you should know:
