Helping Children and Their Families Since 1959
When a physician, nurse, midwife, anesthesiologist, obstetrician or hospital fail to provide appropriate care during the labor and delivery, prenatal or postnatal period, with resulting catastrophic birth injury, mothers and fathers are immediately placed in a position they never dreamed of: How can I assure that my child will receive the medical attention necessary to help him or her reach their full potential? How can I make certain that after I die, there will be someone to take care of my child’s needs?
Contact an experienced San Francisco, California cerebral palsy lawyer. At the Walkup, Melodia law firm, we understand the complexities of birth injuries. A medical mistake can mean multiple surgeries, a lifetime of attendant care, recurring medical conditions, limited expectations, and other issues.
It can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, sometimes millions of dollars, to deal with the effects of a birth injury. A failure to diagnose a condition, the wrong response in a medical situation, or an instant's lack of attention can result in injuries that last a lifetime.
At our San Francisco, California law firm, you will find cerebral palsy lawyers with extensive experience in birth injury cases. We get to know the child and the child's family so that we can tell your story to a jury. Our medical malpractice birth injury attorneys work with a network of medical and life-planning experts to determine the cause, extent, and prognosis of a birth injury. We work diligently and effectively for a fair settlement while always being ready to take the case to trial.
