Trust Newsome Melton to Fight for Compensation After an Epidural Birth Injury

Many women receive epidurals before and during childbirth. Most end up having healthy births with only minimal side effects.

Having said all that, the benefits of an epidural depend heavily on the skill of the person administering it. A wrongly administered epidural is not only not beneficial but poses risks both to a mother and the baby.

If so, we will hold the anesthesiologist, obstetrician, nurse anesthetist, or other medical professionals accountable and help you recover compensation.

Let an Epidural Birth Injury Lawyer From Newsome Melton Build a Strong Case for Medical Malpractice

At Newsome Melton, we have a strong record of fighting and winning medical malpractice cases. We want to put our experience, knowledge, and resources to work for you.

We know that a successful malpractice case must establish four elements. We make sure your case clearly shows all four of them. They are as follows:

The Medical Professional Owed You a Duty of Care

First, we must show that the anesthesiologist, obstetrician, nurse anesthetist, or other medical professional in question owed you a duty of care at the time they administered the epidural. We can prove a duty of care by establishing that you had an active provider-patient relationship.

The Medical Professional Violated Their Duty of Care

Second, we have to demonstrate that the anesthesiologist, obstetrician, nurse anesthetist, or other medical professional did not uphold their duty of care. We do this by comparing their actions to what one would expect from a reasonable person in the same situation. We often rely on expert witness testimony to make this case.

You or Your Child Suffered an Injury

Third, we must establish that you or your child suffered an injury, and we must draw a connection between this injury and the failure on the part of the anesthesiologist, obstetrician, nurse anesthetist, or other medical professional.

You Incurred Damages

Last, we have to list specific damages, which can be both economic and noneconomic, that you incurred as a result of your or your child’s injury.

Recoverable Damages After an Epidural Birth Injury

What you may be able to recover depends on the circumstances of your case. However, potentially recoverable damages could include:

Once we have investigated the birth and your injuries, our team will determine the value of the damages to which you are entitled.
