Cerebral Palsy — Brachial Plexus Injury

We understand the emotional impact of a birth injury and the challenges you and your family face today and may continue to face because of a doctor's negligence. We fight for fair and just compensation in birth injury cases involving:

  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Brachial plexus injuries (nerve damage)
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brain damage/oxygen deprivation
  • Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN)
  • Post-delivery infections
  • Wrongful death

Do not allow insurance companies to tell you your claim is not worth anything. Before speaking with an agent or signing any papers, allow a skilled lawyer at Sokol & Foster, P.C., to analyze your claims. Insurance companies almost never offer you the full amount you are entitled to receive up front. We will fight to ensure you get the compensation you need to move forward with your life.

Obstetrical Malpractice: Birth Injuries, or Injuries to Mother or Child

Obstetrical mistakes often result in severe or fatal damage to the mother or baby. In some cases, doctors fail to prevent hypoxia — loss of oxygen — which can cause brain damage. In other cases, doctors and nurses make errors in determining the best type of delivery (C-section or natural delivery).

Common errors on the part of obstetricians, nurses and hospital staff include:

  • Delivery errors
  • Failure to recognize fetal distress
  • Failure to take appropriate steps to prevent infection
  • Failure to consider health risks to the mother

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for birth errors to lead to the death of a mother or child or severe damage to a baby's brain and nerves. Most birth injuries can be prevented with appropriate medical care.
