Birth injuries are any injury that occurs in the period shortly before, during, or after birth. They can range from mostly harmless injuries that heal on their own to severe and disabling conditions. In extreme cases, they may even result in infant death. That’s why it is important to understand how birth injuries occur and how to recognize the symptoms of birth injuries in your child.

In Oklahoma, the statute of limitations on birth injury cases is seven years, while infant wrongful death claims must be filed within two years. Since months or even years could pass before symptoms of birth injuries begin to show, it is important to see a medical provider for a diagnosis and speak to a lawyer as soon as you suspect your child may be suffering from a birth injury.
Birth injuries that result in permanent, potentially disabling conditions such as cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy may require lifelong medical treatment or live-in care. Many families can’t afford that, especially if they are living on reduced income while one parent stays home to care for the child.
We know how stressful it can be to worry about how you’ll provide for your child, especially when they are living with a condition that makes life harder for them than it is for other children. We don’t think you should have to live that way, especially when your child’s condition is the fault of a healthcare provider’s negligence.
Our birth injury lawyers are experienced with this type of case, and we know how to calculate what you may be owed for the pain you’ve suffered, your medical bills relating to your child’s birth injury, and any future expenses they will have related to their disability. We will fight the insurance company on your behalf to get you everything you are owed, and we’re willing to take the matter to court if necessary.
