Missouri Cerebral Palsy Attorneys
The standards established by the medical profession have allowed millions of childbirths to go smoothly. Unfortunately there are times, through either action or inaction, when a doctor fails to meet the standard of care. The result of this negligence is often a birth injury that may leave a child requiring a lifetime of medical care and attention.
The Hullverson Law Firm assists Missouri and Illinois clients whose children have been injured during birth. Our lawyers have extensive experience pursuing compensation in these cases.
What Is the Nature of the Birth Injury?
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb's palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
Our job is to determine exactly how much compensation our client requires. This is complex in these cases, because that compensation must include enough money to cover a lifetime's worth of major medical care.
Medical Records May Not Have All the Answers
In order to succeed in birth injury cases, like all other types of medical malpractice cases, a law firm must have access to trusted medical professionals who are willing to testify as expert witnesses. These experts are able to look beyond what is written in the medical records to find out exactly how the standard of care was not met, and to establish that the substandard care was the underlying cause of the birth injury. We have access to the necessary medical experts and are able to work with them to design successful legal strategies.
Personal Injury Cases Handled on a Contingency Basis
Our legal fees are based on contingency. If there is no recovery in your birth injury case, you will owe us nothing for fees or expenses.
