Birth Injury Attorneys

Pregnancy and labor and delivery care can result in horrific injuries if the medical providers are negligent.  Babies can be asphyxiated prior to delivery, resulting in brain damage and cerebral palsy, or suffer traumatic damage to their limbs if not handled properly.  These cases are extremely complex, but the birth injury lawyers at Decof, Decof & Barry have extensive experience in these challenging complex cases.

Birth Injury Attorney Expertise

Our experience includes work in the following types of birth injury cases, among others:

  • Traumatic delivery/shoulder dystocia
  • Brachial Plexus and Erb’s Palsy
  • Birth Asphyxia/Cerebral Palsy
  • Placental Abruption
  • Failure to diagnose and treat infections and other medical conditions

The following examples demonstrate our success on behalf of numerous clients. While every case is different, and there are no guarantees of success or value, these examples provide some insight into the claims we have handled.
