Houston Birth Injuries Attorney
South Texas Cerebral Palsy Lawyer
Doctors and other healthcare professionals who fail to follow standard treatment protocols and violate the standard of care owed a patient can be held liable for injuries that occur. In cases involving common birth injuries, failure to properly monitor a fetus or the mother's vital signs can often result in hypoxic injuries or complications that lead to difficulties during delivery.
More than 30 Years of Experience
At Hartley Hampton, P.C., we consult obstetricians, anesthesiologists, and other medical experts in identifying failures on the part of doctors and nurses that lead to common birth injuries. Our office reviews medical records from the day of delivery, as well as our client's medical history in order to identify any factors that should have alerted doctors to the potential for delivery complications.

Negligence that results in Common Birth Injuries

- Skull fractures
- Forceps injuries
- Cerebral Palsy
- Fetal acidosis
- Hypoxic injuries
- Failure to properly check fetal heart monitor
Seeking Damages in Birth Injury Cases
Since most birth injuries involved a deprivation of oxygen, the long-term consequences can be significant. In determining the financial impact of a birth injury, Hartley Hampton works closely with economists and life care planners who provide cost projections based on data maintained by HMOs and the insurance industry itself. As a result, we take into consideration costs associated with medical equipment, in-home nursing care, physical therapy, special education, lost earnings, and loss in quality of life.
Our office can also assist parents in establishing a special needs trust with any proceeds from an award or settlement. Creating a special needs trust ensures your child will continue to receive the care he or she needs while exempting assets from Medicaid calculations for benefits eligibility.
