Nothing is more challenging than knowing that your child suffered or continues to suffer due to negligence, irresponsible behavior or medical malpractice by an obstetrician or other medical professional. Just as challenging may be not knowing why your child is suffering. With the help of our in-house medical director, Bradford S. Davis, M.D., we may be able to provide answers by conducting a thorough examination of the details of your case. If you and your family received medical attention that was below the standard of care, you have allies at Michels & Lew. We may be able to obtain financial compensation on your behalf. We also have access to leading medical experts to assist in your recovery and treatment.

A birth injury can result in massive medical costs and lifetime convalescent care. By contacting our lawyers as soon as possible, we can help you determine if your case has merit. Using our long history of success, extensive experience and access to leading medical experts, we will obtain and review medical records and attempt to determine the cause of your child’s injury. If negligence was the cause, our legal team will seek the compensation and justice you deserve.

We have Extensive Experience and Vital Resources including an in-house M.D.

Bradford S. Davis, M.D. has been our in-house Medical Director since 1994 and is the former Clinical Director of the Emergency Department at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica. For nearly two decades Dr. Davis has been especially focused on evaluating infants and children who may have suffered birth trauma or other medical challenges caused by medical malpractice and negligence.

Not only are we equipped to confront the legal issues of birth injuries to infants, we have also represented many mothers who suffered as the result of OBGYN medical malpractice. If your family is struggling with an injury to mother or child that occurred during birth, the pre-natal period, or the neonatal period, you deserve the truth. If you would like to speak with Dr. Davis or with one of our lawyers, call our Los Angeles office. We represent clients throughout California.

We have Handled Thousands of Birth Injury Cases in California

No two cases are the same. This is why a history of success is so important. We have the experience to use strategies that have been effective in the past; but we also have the skill to adapt to present circumstances. No matter the nature of your case, we have the resources to investigate and the skill to relentlessly pursue justice on your behalf. Our experience in such cases includes:

  • Birth trauma resulting from improper use of forceps or suction
  • Vaginal birth after a cesarean section resulting in a ruptured uterus, brain damage or death
  • Delay in diagnosis of fetal distress
  • Delay in performing a C-section
  • Brain injury resulting from lack of oxygen (brain hypoxia)
  • Cerebral palsy from medical and hospital errors
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Necrotizing enterocolitis (bowel infection), bleeding in the brain, or lung problems

Unfortunately, there are many possibilities for trauma during labor and delivery. A skilled doctor and medical support staff should anticipate these possibilities. If they have not, tragedy may result. Our attorneys have handled thousands of birth injury cases in California and we have helped families recover fair compensation for their suffering. We may be able to help you when no one else will.
