Infant Injury Is Usually Preventable

The attorneys at O’Brien Batten Kirtley & Coomer, PLLC, have more than 80 years of combined experience helping the victims of birth injuries and fetal distress get the compensation they are entitled to receive. Our firm handles a broad range of fetal distress issues such as:

  • Premature birth
  • Pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH)
  • Delayed cesarean section
  • Preeclampsia

Through the use of fetal monitoring and proper prenatal care, fetal distress that leads to debilitating injuries and even death can, and should, be discovered and treated. Do people in life make errors and mistakes? Yes. But there is no excuse for preventable errors that cause life changing injuries and even death for infants.

Hold Them Accountable For Their Negligence

Doctors and nurses have more tools than ever before to help them recognize fetal distress. If they fail to use them, they need to be held accountable for their actions. Likewise, if hospitals are employing people unqualified to do their jobs, hospitals need to be held accountable.
