Knowledge, Resources, and Commitment

Obstetric malpractice, or any area of medical malpractice, is a complicated area of law that requires extensive knowledge, resources, and commitment from your attorney. Since 1986, our firm has represented parents and their children in cerebral palsy lawsuits. We have the financial resources and relationships with experts in the medical field that give our firm the ability to thoroughly handle all matters. We ask, and find the answers to, questions about the cause of the birth injury.

  • Did the OBGYN or nurse fail to recognize fetal distress or a lack of oxygen?
  • Was the fetal heart rate being monitored closely?
  • Was the decision to perform a C-section delayed?
  • Did the baby sustain head trauma from forceps or a vacuum assisted delivery?

Whether the injury is the result of a breakdown in communication, a doctor not following the standard of care, or another error, we seek to find the cause of the birth injury. Relying upon our vast network of resources in the medical field, we use CT scans, MRIs, and other tests to refute the defense’s argument.

Our firm handles only a small number of cases at any one time. Each client receives personalized attention as we seek fair compensation for their child’s injuries. Contact Dolt, Thompson, Shepherd & Conway, PSC to learn how we can help.
