Birth Injuries



Cerebral Palsy and Birth Trauma in Wisconsin

Most babies are born without incident. Unfortunately, a significant percentage of births do not go well and those infants often sustain permanent brain damage and other injuries. While not all birth injuries are due to medical or OB/GYN negligence, there are cases in which treatment during delivery was inappropriate and the infant was injured due to substandard care.

The office of Egan & Richgels, S.C.  is committed to helping parents get compensation for their injured children. We know how to determine whether or not medical malpractice took place, and if it did, we will work hard to help you get compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills and other costs.

What Went Wrong During Childbirth?

Our lawyers have handled cases involving:

  • Failure to properly recognize and react to fetal distress
  • Failure to perform cesarean sections
  • Injuries due to forceps
  • Anoxia or asphyxiation
  • Improper assessments of fetal age or gestation

The technology is available to prevent these errors, and the conditions that result, including cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy. When the technology isn’t used and the proper steps are not taken, we hold doctors accountable.

Compensation for the Future

Injuries suffered during childbirth put the child’s future in jeopardy. The child and his or her parents need the help of an experienced attorney who can see that they are provided financial security for their child’s future, which may include a lifetime of medical care.

All of the child’s medical records, which set forth the details surrounding the child’s birth and resulting injuries, must be secured and carefully reviewed. Expert obstetricians, pediatric neurologists and neuroradiologists need to analyze the evidence in order to assess whether or not the case has merit. This comprehensive and necessary process frequently consumes several months, and it is just the start of our quest to get you the results you need.
