Getting Full and Fair Compensation For Your Loss

Standing Up For Women And Infants Injured By Medical Negligence

As a parent, all you want is for your prenatal and postnatal experiences to lead to a happy, healthy baby. Tragically, some medical practitioners or health care facilities behave negligently, leaving vulnerable women, fetuses and infants injured for life.

At The Denson Law Firm, LLC, I draw from more than 25 years of experience serving families injured by malpractice and other wrongful acts in Alabama. Whether you, your partner or your child suffered an injury, I am prepared to help you seek fair and just compensation. Together, you and I will hold the negligent party responsible for the actions that harmed you or a loved one.

What To Know About Obstetrical Mistakes And Birth Injuries

During pregnancy, a woman and her unborn child are very vulnerable. Sometimes, negligence on the part of a medical professional occurs before the baby is even born. These gynecological mistakes can include:

  • Failure to warn a patient planning for pregnancy about potentially serious genetic issues that could lead to serious or life-threatening birth defects
  • Failure to check for prenatal conditions resulting in critical health conditions or injury
  • Excessive force during an exam resulting in internal injuries to the mother or fetus
  • Improper use of obstetrical equipment resulting in injury to the mother or baby
  • Failure to advise the mother about pregnancy complications resulting in serious injury or death
  • Failure to properly advise mother on the progression of the pregnancy resulting in injury or death
  • Failure to alert the mother to potential issues that could result in injury or death

Delivering a baby, which should be one of the happiest moments of a parent’s life, can also lead to devastating injuries. Examples of negligence that can lead to serious injuries or death include:

  • Inappropriate use of forceps resulting in head, neck, brain and shoulder injuries
  • Failure to monitor mother and baby’s vitals during and after delivery
  • Failure to respond in a timely manner to fetal distress
  • Performing an unnecessary C-section
  • Failure to suggest a C-section when one is needed
  • Failure to identify placental ruptures or other serious conditions during labor
  • Making a surgical mistake during delivery of a child

Proving that negligence contributed to a birth or gynecological injury is not easy, especially when hospitals and doctors have a fleet of attorneys protecting them. Fortunately, I and my co-counsel have successfully handled hundreds of cases that have led to high settlements and awards. And while I cannot guarantee what your settlement may be, I can promise that I will fight for maximum compensation for you and your family. Advocating for patients who were wronged is always the first priority.
