Lawyers for Victims of Birth Injury

Charles C. KellyThe attorneys of Hersh & Hersh have represented numerous families whose children suffered injuries during labor and delivery. While labor and delivery of a child can be routine, the process, if mismanaged by the medical providers, can cause brain damage and cerebral palsy, learning disabilities and other injuries to the baby.

For instance, a baby may be deprived of sufficient oxygen if a laboring mother's contractions are too frequent or intense and the doctors or nurses do nothing to correct the situation. This deprivation of oxygen during labor may result in permanent brain injury to the newborn. If your baby has problems such as developmental delay, it may be the result of a mismanaged labor and delivery.

Hersh & Hersh successfully settled a case for over $6 million dollars against a San Francisco Hospital because its labor and delivery nurse failed to properly manage a laboring mother causing her baby severe brain injury. Hersh & Hersh teamed with experts in the field of obstetrics, radiology and neurology to bring this case to a successful resolution. Hersh & Hersh’s work provided the family the financial security needed to ensure excellent future care and treatment for their child.
