Does your baby suffer ill effects of cerebral palsy or brachial plexus injuries because an obstetrician or a hospital was negligent during labor or delivery? Contact our Charleston birth injury law firm to discuss your child's injuries and potential legal actions. Johnstone & Gabhart, LLP, has earned a name for itself in West Virginia in the areas of personal injury and medical malpractice claims and lawsuits. Our attorneys are available to evaluate your case, make recommendations and represent you in a negligence case such as a birth injury lawsuit.
With more than 50 years of experience in personal injury law, we are prepared to craft a strategy for pursuing compensation for your child and his or her parents after a birth injury. If your infant now lives with nerve damage — or did not survive — because of brachial plexus injuries, we can initiate an investigation. Many of our clients are not initially thinking of money in cases like this, but rather, just want answers when a newborn has suffered shoulder trauma during the birthing process. Our medical malpractice attorneys are in the business of getting answers — and getting help.
A baby living with disabilities because of a brachial plexus injury can often be greatly helped through timely, appropriate treatments, possibly including:
- Physical therapy
- Adaptive therapies
A birth injury claim or lawsuit may provide your child and your family with the resources necessary to give him or her the best prospects for overcoming a brachial plexus injury such as shoulder dystocia or Erb's palsy. Getting to the bottom of why your child was injured during delivery is the first and most foundational part of a birth injury claim.
