When your baby is injured during labor or delivery, it may be difficult to prove medical negligence. Indeed, doctors, nurses, and hospitals have insurance companies and legal teams working around the clock to help guard against legal action and these powerful interests are often swift to move in as soon as talk of malpractice occurs.
Birth injury cases are medical malpractice claims – and medical malpractice claims are infamously difficult to win. In fact, only about 20% of these cases are successful. Who you choose as your lawyer and how your case is built will be very important for the success of your case.
EXPERIENCED BIRTH INJURY REPRESENTATION
The birth injury lawyers at Lourie, Chance, Forlines, Carter & King have extensive experience helping families in and around Atlanta get justice following medical negligence. Founding Partner, Lance Lourie, spent time in the 1990s working for a firm that defended doctors accused of medical negligence. This gives us first-hand knowledge of how birth injury defenses are built and argued – and we use this knowledge to craft solid birth injury claims that we are willing to take as far as necessary to help our clients get the compensation they are due.
We have a full-time Labor & Delivery Nurse on staff to review birth injury claims. If we suspect negligence, a tea will need to be built in order to build your case. This may include:
- Placental Pathologists
- Life-Care Planners
- And others
Depending on the specifics of your case, these professionals may serve to review documents, provide expert testimony, and counter claims made by the defense. They may also serve in an advisory capacity or to provide your family with needed resources.
Birth injury is not a temporary issue. Babies injured during labor or delivery often face a lifetime of physical, mental, and emotional challenges. We are here to look at the full picture, provide support, and fight for justice for your family.
