During childbirth, inappropriate or delayed reactions to emergency situations, failure to follow prescribed procedures, negligence or other mistakes by the physician or delivery room staff can interrupt the flow of oxygen to the baby’s brain. This can result in brain damage, cerebral palsy or other conditions. Other problems with limbs and nerves can result as well, leaving the child with permanent disabilities. Birth injuries can be tragic for the child, and emotionally and financially devastating for the family.
If you feel that you have such a case, contact Liever, Hyman & Potter as soon as possible. One of our experienced lawyers will be immediately available to protect your case, guide you through the entire process, and will deal directly with the doctors, hospital and insurance companies. You’ll pay us no money — not a cent — until we recover money for you, after which our contingent fee will be based on a percentage of the award or settlement that will be clearly defined in the initial agreement to represent you. Unlike most other law firms, our agreement says that you will not have to repay any of the expenses that we may have advanced on your behalf unless we recover money for you.
