Compassionate Tennessee Attorneys Represent Parents of Infants Injured at Birth
Caring personal injury lawyers seek compensation for families in the Memphis area
The birth of your child should be one of the happiest moments of your life, but that joy can quickly turn to despair when your baby is injured during delivery. The attorneys at Bryan Smith & Associates provide diligent representation to families in the Memphis area and throughout Tennessee affected by birth injuries. As an established personal injury law firm, our attorneys have a thorough understanding of the short- and long-term effects of birth injuries, including the emotional and financial trauma parents suffer. We work with trusted professionals to help determine the full extent of your child’s injury and the care that will be needed in the future to maximize your financial recovery.
Responsive advocates understand the causes of birth injuries
At Bryan Smith & Associates, we know that birth injuries can happen before, during or shortly after delivery. They are more likely to occur when certain factors come into play, such as:
- A failure to identify, monitor or act on fetal distress
- A failure to plan for an emergency C-section
- The use of excessive force during delivery
- The misuse of instruments during delivery
- Lack of blood or oxygen to the infant’s brain
- Exposure to bacteria
- Respiratory distress
- Placenta previa
When the negligence of a medical professional leads to a birth injury, our attorneys will work tirelessly to hold them accountable and get you the compensation you deserve.
Dedicated litigators handle claims for a range of birth injuries
When a medical professional fails to provide an accepted standard of care before, during or after delivery, there are many types of harm that can result. Some of the most common types of birth injuries are:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Bone fractures
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brain damage
- Facial paralysis
- Spinal cord injuries
- Nerve injuries
- Oxygen deprivation
- Intracranial hemorrhages
- Caput Succedaneum
- Horner’s syndrome
No matter the birth injury your infant suffers, our attorneys will draw upon the expertise of medical professionals whose testimony can document the extent of the harm and bolster your case for full compensation.
Experienced counselors know the need for prompt treatment
While some birth injuries heal naturally over time, it is critical you monitor your child’s health to ensure they receive the medical attention they need. Surgeries to repair nerve damage are more effective when a baby is still an infant, and early physical therapy helps weakened muscles develop before unnecessary strain is placed on healthier limbs. Our lawyers work with you and trusted doctors to ensure your child gets appropriate care.
