Assessing Your Case
If your child has Cerebral Palsy(CP) it could have been caused by a lack of oxygen and/or other trauma to your baby during your baby’s birth.
Although doctors and nurses are trained to identify when the fetus is becoming stressed and suffering oxygen loss during labor and delivery, in all too many instances they fail to identify the problem or take action to avoid brain injury to the baby.
This failure to appreciate the baby’s condition and act to save the baby can be malpractice, and we are better able to recognize whether this is the case than the majority of lawyers who look at these cases.
Failing to diagnose cancer or a heart condition at a point that it can be effectively treated, performing surgery that results in paralysis or brain damage, and treatments that end in the unexpected death of the patient may all be due to medical malpractice. The answer to whether such an occurrence was just a medical mistake or actionable malpractice often can be found hiding in pages of the medical records. Therefore, you want an attorney who knows what to look for.
Built upon the skill, knowledge and experience of trained medical doctors who became lawyers, our team knows how to investigate and interpret the medical records to determine whether your tragic outcome was merely unfortunate or the result of medical negligence.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
Not all medical mistakes are medical negligence. As lawyers who were trained as doctors, we are able to evaluate the medical records quickly to determine whether your child’s Cerebral Palsy, or your severe and permanent injuries from delay in cancer diagnosis, surgical error, or other medical mistakes, was in fact the result of medical negligence.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR ASSESSING MY CASE?
We normally like to start with a brief telephone call. You can call us today TOLL FREE on 1-877-292-6491, that’s 1-866-4-LAWDOC, and we’ll ask you for some information. If you don’t have time, email us using our online contact form and one of experienced team members will get back to you shortly.
Next, we’ll need to have a look at the relevant medical records. Due to our experience and knowledge within both the legal and medical professions, in many cases we can make our evaluation on the same day we receive them.
Dr. Gershon or Dr. Getz, or our Registered Lawyer-Nurse, Robin Smith, will investigate the medical records. If they find evidence of medical malpractice we will call you to let you know what we found and that we are having the medical records reviewed by independent medical experts who are willing to testify for you in court if they believe negligence caused the child’s injuries.
In a typical birth injury case those experts would be in obstetrics, neonatology, pediatric neuroradiology, pediatric neurology and other specialists as deemed appropriate under the facts of the case. Cases involving delay in diagnosis of cancer or surgical error would require review by independent medical experts in other fields, such as internal medicine, oncology, surgery etc.
Once we have accumulated sufficient evidence to prove your child’s Cerebral Palsy or Birth Injury, or your delayed cancer diagnosis or botched surgery, was a direct result of medical malpractice, our Lawyer-Doctors will notify you immediately and prepare to file suit on your behalf.
Remember, we work on a contingency fees basis; you will owe us nothing for these services unless we win for you! You and your Lawyer-Doctors are in this fight together, so don’t hesitate to contact us now!
