Standing Up for Victims in The Lehigh Valley

Learning that your child has suffered a birth injury, such as cerebral palsy, can be overwhelming. You likely have many questions: How did this happen? Could it have been avoided? How will you care for your child's special needs through his or her lifetime? Do you have the financial resources to ensure your child receives the appropriate medical attention throughout his or her life?

Cerebral palsy is a hypoxic brain injury that occurs when the brain has inadequate blood flow or oxygen. While not all birth injuries are completely avoidable, there are unfortunate occasions where the child's cerebral palsy resulted directly due to physician negligence during pregnancy, labor or delivery, such as:

  • Negligent fetal monitoring during labor and delivery
  • Failure to recognize signs of fetal distress
  • Making a delayed decision to perform a C-section
  • Failing to perform a C-section when it was necessary
  • Other medical negligence

We hold doctors and other medical providers financially accountable for their negligence by pursuing maximum compensation for the victims and the victim's family. We have successfully helped countless families in recovering the compensation they need in medical malpractice lawsuits throughout Pennsylvania.

In addition to pursuing the compensation you will need to care for your child's special needs, our lawyers are dedicated to providing families with the resources they will need now and into the future.
