Davenport Birth Injury Lawyers

The birth of a baby is supposed to be a joyous celebration. We can only imagine how heartbroken you must be if your child was born with disabilities, or how utterly devastating it must be if your child did not survive.

We will vigorously pursue appropriate compensation for:

  • Cerebral palsy, brain damage that can affect motor skills and intellect
  • Erb’s palsy and other brachial plexus injuries that paralyze or impair the infant’s arm or hand
  • Profound brain damage
  • Other disabilities from complications of premature birth
  • Stillbirth or neonatal death
  • Injury to the mother from hemorrhage or stroke

Michael K. Bush and John C. Bush are accomplished trial lawyers who know the questions to ask when investigating medical malpractice. Did nurses watch the fetal monitoring strip for signs of fetal distress? Was the delivering physician qualified to perform a cesarean delivery? Did the doctor wait too long to order or perform a C-section? Did the doctor follow the proper steps to avoid a shoulder dystocia injury or improperly force a vaginal birth?

Experience and Investment in Medical Malpractice Cases

These cases commonly require a substantial investment in medical experts to even have a chance of success. Our law firm has the resources to hire specialists in the field of obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) and other medical experts who can testify how the childbirth team deviated from standard practices or botched the delivery.

They have the courtroom experience to explain these technical concepts to a jury and show how the resulting disabilities will affect your child far into the future. They pursue full damages for the baby’s special needs and the parents’ emotional trauma.
