Our Approach to These Claims
Our collaborative team of Salt Lake City fetal brain injury lawyers is prepared to evaluate your potential medical malpractice case and offer sound, empathetic counsel. We know what the stakes are in these cases, and fully recognize the emotional and traumatic element these cases so often have for new parents.
We're prepared to handle cases in which a child:
- Has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, some form of encephalopathy or another mental disability—sometimes caused by failure to diagnose infection, a treatable blood incompatibility, a medication or anesthesia error, or by bleeding in the baby’s brain after a traumatic delivery.
- Incurred brain damage due to hypoxia or anoxia—when a child is deprived of oxygen flow to the brain in utero, during the delivery or soon after birth.
- Suffered a fetal brain injury that was not properly diagnosed and treated in a timely manner, resulting in a potentially permanent disability or a wrongful death.
You need a focused, reputable law firm to demonstrate that a physician or hospital is liable for damages in a fetal brain injury case. We have a network of resources for medical information and qualified opinions on whether physicians, anesthesiologists, or other medical personnel failed to meet the prevailing standard of care.
