The birth of a child is a joyous event in any parents’ life. When that joy of bringing a new life into the world is destroyed by the acts of a negligent health care professional, you are entitled to compensation for your child’s injuries. While a severe birth injury does not change your love for your child, caring for them is made more difficult if they suffer from a long-term disability or disfigurement.
At the law office of Jerry D. Andrews, P.C., in Dallas, Texas, we will represent you and hold the medical professionals accountable for any birth injuries your child has suffered. We encourage clients to come to us as soon as possible following a catastrophic accident. The sooner you consult an experienced attorney, the better your chances are for securing compensation to help care for your child and his or her special needs.
Experienced Representation During This Difficult Time
Texas board-certified personal injury trial attorney Jerry D. Andrews has handled many birth injury cases, including:
- Brain damage or trauma
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Brachial plexus paralysis
- Hypoxic and anoxic injuries
- Abrupted placenta

Our firm will work diligently to establish your case. We will interview the attending physician and other medical professionals involved in the birth. We will consult our network of medical experts to identify what went wrong and who is responsible. Sometimes, birth injuries can happen and no one is to blame. But if a doctor or other medical personnel acted negligently and harmed your child, we can help you recover the damages you deserve.
Cases involving birth injuries are very complicated and can be costly and time-consuming. Under the appropriate circumstances, we will settle your case if you desire, but we will not hesitate to take your case to court if it is in the best interests of you and your child. Mr. Andrews has tried over 30 jury cases and has secured many verdicts and settlements in his client’s favor. He will argue your case in the most efficient and effective manner possible to obtain the compensation you deserve.
Understanding Medical Malpractice Claims
In Texas, non-economic damages are capped in medical malpractice cases. However, economic damages are not capped in a severe injury case, and we will fight to recover those damages on your behalf.
