Over 40 Years Of Client Advocacy

Shoulder Dystocia And Medical Negligence

Was your doctor or delivery team negligent in causing Erb’s palsy or cerebral palsy because of shoulder dystocia during birth? If your child has been diagnosed with either disorder, it is important that you speak with experienced birth injury attorney as soon as possible. You may be able to seek significant compensation to remedy mistakes made by the responsible medical professional(s). In many cases, Erb’s palsy and cerebral palsy result from the delivery team’s departure from the established standard of care. However, finding and proving negligence by the delivery team is often a complicated task, requiring in-depth investigation and collaboration with specialized medical experts. At Bird Law Group, we represent mothers and families throughout Georgia whose babies have suffered birth injury. Our Atlanta-based attorneys are advocates, trial lawyers and experienced negotiators. We have over 40 years of experience representing clients in Georgia and producing significant results against some of the toughest defense teams in the business.

Proactive Pursuit Of Your Full And Fair Compensation

Health systems and insurance companies often put walls up to distract victims from the full compensation they deserve. Our team establishes full and fair value of claims through investigations and works with medical experts who understand the long-term implications of these injuries for children and families.

Your child will likely have a permanent disability if he or she has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy or Erb’s palsy. Whether the birth injury was caused by obstructed labor (shoulder dystocia) or a lack of oxygen during labor and delivery for some other reason, we know how to get the facts and put them to effective use in your case.

Shoulder dystocia and brachial plexus injuries often require ongoing physical therapy, special medications and specific physical accommodations throughout a child’s life. Our team understands the pivotal nature of your case, and we dedicate ourselves to securing what your family needs to minimize future hardships to the furthest extent possible.
