We Help Families After Umbilical Cord Compression Injuries

Our attorneys have represented catastrophic birth injury clients for more than 30 years. We can help you obtain the compensation you deserve if your child has suffered injuries as a result of umbilical cord compression.

A competent doctor should be able to spot the signs of fetal distress that indicate umbilical cord prolapse. During labor, an umbilical cord can become pinched during contractions or through other causes. Since the umbilical cord is the child’s primary means of nutrients, failure to correct a prolapsed umbilical cord quickly can lead to:

We have the experience to review medical records to determine whether the doctor should have seen the signs of umbilical cord compression. If your doctor’s negligence caused the injuries, we can help you obtain compensation for that tragedy.

There Is No Substitute For Experience

One of the most important aspects of medical malpractice litigation is managing settlement negotiations. When a doctor’s counsel or medical health facility makes a settlement offer, the only way to tell whether it is a quality offer is through experience. Because our Detroit umbilical cord compression lawyers have more than 100 combined years of experience, we can help you determine whether to accept or reject an offer. If you do not receive a good offer, we are prepared and equipped to keep fighting your case for as long as it takes until you get the award you deserve.
