Learn More About Birth Injury
Birth Injury cases are the most difficult of all. It’s very difficult
to know why a baby brain gets injured. There are all sorts of things that
cause it, and in your typical case what will happens is the defense will
list 5 or 6 different things that could have causes the brain damage.
And our job as trial lawyers is to show the jury that the thing that produced
the damage was bad medical care usually during labor and delivery.
The challenge in these cases is to focus the jury’s attention on
the events that caused the brain damage and typically there is some issue
about Obstetrical care. Did the Obstetrician do a proper job? Often times
after we review these records we find that he / she did not, and so we
have to find Obstetrical witnesses who will testify. Obstetricians hate
to testify against each other, they loath it.
So one of the challenges is to find competent, consciences, persuasive
Obstetricians who will come to court and tell a jury this is what happened.
This is why this baby’s brain was injured. Fortunately for us having
done it for 40 years, we have got a group of experts who will, in the
appropriate case, and criticize care that deserves to be criticized.
