Supportive Phoenix Birth Injury Lawyers

Advocating for mothers and children injured during pregnancy, labor or delivery

Knowing that a serious or disabling injury to your child or wife could have been prevented if the doctor, nurse or hospital had provided the proper prenatal testing, pregnancy care or labor and delivery services is one of the worst experiences a parent can suffer. But malpractice laws exist so that victims of medical negligence have recourse against harmful behavior. A skilled birth injury attorney from the law firm of Lewis and Pokora in Phoenix can provide you with the information and insight you need to respond to medical malpractice incidents involving prenatal or surgical errors and resulting injuries.

Take action when malpractice leads to a birth injury

It is vital to contact a Phoenix birth injury lawyer at Lewis and Pokora as soon as possible if you or your loved one have been harmed by a healthcare professional or facility. Evidence can become increasingly difficult to gather in the days and weeks following a birth injury accident, so our attorneys act quickly and thoroughly.

  • Birth hemorrhage
  • Birth-related lacerations

Prenatal injuries

When your child suffers an injury resulting from improper genetic testing, faulty ultrasounds or other routine medical procedures designed to detect and diagnose fetal conditions and defects, our birth injury attorneys in Phoenix provide you with the advocacy necessary to secure compensation from the negligent party and their agents.

Prescription errors

If an adverse drug interaction resulted in a birth defect, it is vital to contact an experienced Phoenix medical malpractice attorney from our firm. There are many safety checks that should have prevented the accident from occurring, including Food and Drug Administration inspections, manufacturer-conducted testing of prescription drugs, pharmaceutical checks for drug interactions and other types of pretesting.

Surgical errors

When a birth injury occurs during labor and delivery, our skilled Phoenix surgical error attorneys know what it takes to identify the source of malpractice and pursue compensation from the negligent surgeon, nurse or hospital. Typical surgical errors include misuse of tools such as forceps or a vacuum extractor, thereby causing a facial nerve or brachial plexus injury that results in Erb’s palsy. Our lawyers can also help you obtain a second opinion to determine whether the surgical procedures were conducted in accordance with industry standards.

Brain injuries

A Phoenix brain injury lawyer at our firm may be able to help when a child has sustained brain injuries such as cerebral palsy after a birth-related accident. Our attorneys work closely with neurologists and other respected experts who have the medical knowledge needed to secure your claim to compensation.
