On this page is a comprehensive list of birth injuries resulting from Medical Malpractice.  We have an in-depth  analysis of Cerebral Palsy issues here. We have provided this birth injury information, causes and types in written and audio format for your convenience. The causes of birth injuries are as varied as the life time expenses related to the long term care. But be advised that your doctor or hospital is not going to tell you this. They will do what they can to hide this information and leave you with a life time of staggering financial expenses.

Getting to get to the truth in a birth injury or malpractice case is very difficult; the medical providers will not be forthcoming. If you have a child impacted by a life altering decease, we invite you to review our information and resources, but please give a us a call to discuss your particular case. Most times folks do not realize that they have a case because they are never told that something was done wrong. Your medical provider is not going to volunteer this information. When you call Wais, Vogelstein, Form and Offutt we will speak with you about the birth process and what happened and when. Where helpful, we can retrieve records and monitor strips and give you a neutral and truthful understanding of what happened to your child. You are entitled to an honest evaluation as to what happened, you are unlikely to get that from your medical provider! The truth is birth injuries happen for a variety of reasons and in too many instances it is negligence related. Because of the high life long costs that result from birth negligence, you must have the truth, you are entitled to the truth- we will uncover the truth for you- at no cost. If you have a concern about what happened to your child or loved one, we will  assist you at no cost or obligation. We have the financial resources and an record setting team of malpractice litigators to get at the truth for your family. At the bottom of this page you can read about our panel of record breaking trial attorneys or click here to see our extensive list of verdicts and settlements that have changed our client’s lives forever.

Evaluation of your case is free and there is no obligation. If you have any concern about how an injury happened, please take a minute right now and give us a call for a free consultation.  Even if your doctor has told you that the injury was a result of natural cause it is important to get an unbiased and accurate review.
