Experienced Birth Injuries Litigation Attorney
Birth injuries can occur as a result of a difficult delivery, or they can occur during a normal delivery. Some injuries suffered during birth only last a short while, and then there are others with permanent implications, thus having consequences that affect the child and his or her family members for the duration of their lives. The severity of the effects caused by a birth injury varies from person to person. Often, medical professionals are responsible for birth injuries due to actions taken or not taken in the delivery room, operating room or emergency room.
A Lawyer Who Knows The Medical Details — A Professional Staff That Cares
I am attorney Robert Beatty-Walters in Portland, Oregon. I provide a unique perspective representing the families of children who suffered injuries at birth. For many years prior to entering the legal profession in 1995 and ultimately establishing the Law Office of Robert Beatty-Walters in 2008, I was employed as a registered nurse. I continue to maintain my nurse’s license through the state of Oregon.
Why does that matter to you? I believe my firsthand knowledge of medical procedures and practices distinguishes me as a lawyer, uniquely qualified to navigate the complexities of cases involving birth injuries.
Worried About How To Pay For Your Child’s Medical Needs? Of Course You Are.
Of course you are putting your child’s health needs first, but that doesn’t mean you are not worried about the expense of raising a child with a serious birth injury. I will aggressively pursue the full extent of financial damages your child — and your family — will need.
Birth injuries can include impairments ranging from a loss of muscle control and paralysis to learning disabilities. Often, birth injuries result in the victim’s lifetime dependence on 24-hour-a-day care or assistance. My professional staff and I understand how emotional a birth injury can be on the parents and family. Through patience, support and respect, you will feel the compassionate and empathetic approach we take to every medical malpractice litigation case.
My experience in birth injury litigation includes cases related to:
- Cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy
- Wrongful induction of labor
- Failure to perform a cesarean
- C-section surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose any condition that could lead to complications
- Brain damage
- Perinatal asphyxia
- Shoulder dystocia
