Strength in Your Time of Need

Hartford Birth Injury Lawyer

Was Your Child Harmed by a Negligent Doctor?

At Carlson & Dumeer, LLC, we are a family-oriented practice that advocates on behalf of injured infants and their families whose lives have been scarred by medical malpractice. Not only do we handle all of the legal work for you, but we begin the process by offering free case evaluations and by taking cases on a contingency fee basis.

We understand that watching your innocent child endure a preventable injury is hard enough; therefore, we do everything possible to protect your rights, to pursue maximum compensation on your child's behalf, and to bring the liable party to justice.

We want to send a message to the medical community that preventable birth injuries cannot be tolerated or swept under the rug, and not at the expense of an innocent child's health.

Common Types of Birth Injuries

Despite advances in modern obstetrics and gynecology, birth injuries still occur in America's hospitals each and every day. Sadly, when a doctor, nurse, or anesthesiologist makes a mistake, a birth injury can result and the consequences can be absolutely heartbreaking.

Common birth injuries, include:

  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Facial nerve paralysis
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Brain damage
  • Erb's or Klumpke's palsy
  • Fetal death from Pitocin overdose
  • Birth hypoxia and brain damage
  • Intracranial hemorrhage

Birth injuries can change a child's life permanently, and they can impact the entire family. While some birth injuries are minor and heal with time, others are so severe that the child must endure life-long physical and mental disabilities, and in worst cases premature death.

Protecting the Rights of Injured Children

If you or your child were wrongfully injured during the labor and delivery process, a Hartford personal injury lawyer from Carlson & Dumeer, LLC can help. We are zealous patient advocates who are not afraid to go up against a prominent physician or hospital. Our goal is to not only help you and your child, but to help prevent other infants from suffering similar injuries during the birthing process.

You do not have to face this tragedy alone. Contact our office to schedule a free consultation with a caring and knowledgeable attorney who will fight for the compensation your family deserves.
