Birth injury testimonial
I relied on my doctor to make sure my unborn child would be healthy and safe. During labor, something went wrong. The baby didn’t get enough oxygen and she suffered brain damage. Sommers Schwartz team of birth injury lawyers, paralegals, nurses, and experts went to work right away. The OBGYN doctors and nurses failed to monitor her heart rate and prevent the lack of oxygen to her brain. Sommers Schwartz uncovered the truth and held them accountable for their mistakes, obtaining a 4.375 million settlement.

If your child has cerebral palsy, the cost of medical care and daily assistance now and after you’re gone can be staggering. We’ll fight to get the compensation you need and deserve.

You think you’re going to bring home a newborn that’s healthy and happy and smiling and you bring home a child that’s brain damaged and needs 24/7 care. It’s devastating to the family, whoever you may be. It’s a total team effort. And so, when we go into a case it’s like four or five against one on the other side where other attorneys it’s one on one. I like the former odds better.

You would think that after a major injury occurs in a hospital that why it happened would be clearly stated in the medical records, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. What happens after a major injury is a cover up and a concerted attempt to camouflage what really occurred. And it takes a great deal of knowledge, a great deal of skill, a great deal of tenacity to recreate that event and to be able to bring to a jury what really happened.
