Birth Injuries

Medical Malpractice

Our commitment to representing Arkansas residents victimized by medical practice is twofold. We want to hold medical providers accountable and ensure the continued pursuit in improving safety standards. Pursuing justice and striving to reduce deadly errors are especially important when representing parents dealing with a serious injury to their newborn child.

At the law firm of Dodds, Kidd, Ryan & Rowan, our attorneys combine more than 90 years of experience with success in securing millions of dollars in compensation for our clients in medical malpractice claims.

Securing Justice For Newborns And Parents Victimized By Malpractice

The excitement of anticipating the birth of a child turns tragic when a trusted doctor fails to exercise basic standards of medical care. The trust placed in a medical professional is shattered following the discovery of brain damage, broken bones or other birth injuries caused by:

  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Failure to monitor the mother and/or infant
  • Failure to treat fetal distress
  • Improper forceps use or negligent vacuum extraction
  • Failure to initiate a timely cesarean section or performing an unnecessary C-section
  • Medication errors

Whether an infant was delivered prematurely or has suffered a brachial plexus injury, the damage done can be catastrophic. A diagnosis of cerebral palsy or Erb's palsy following birth is life-changing and devastating.

Emotionally charged issues combine with complex legal matters. In addition to access to immediate medical treatment, parents need compensation for ongoing medical needs when their child suffers broken bones or brain damage following birth.

We attend to every detail in our investigations of medical malpractice claims involving newborns, working closely with medical professionals. From there, we identify the specific issues and the severity of the injuries and move forward with determination to maximize compensation.
