Birth Injury

Winston-Salem Birth Injury Lawyers

North Carolina Cerebral Palsy Attorneys

If your newborn child suffered a disability or deformity as the result of the negligence of the obstetrician or any other member of the delivery team before, during, or after childbirth, contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney at the Winston-Salem offices of Comerford & Britt, LLP.

As with other medical malpractice litigation, birth injury lawsuits are required by law to be supported by the opinion of a medical professional that the defendant physician failed to treat the patient in a manner consistent with an established standard of care. Our lawyers therefore work closely with outstanding obstetric experts before your lawsuit is filed in order to investigate the circumstances of the birth injury, identify the potential defendants, and articulate a specific basis of liability against the defendants with forensic medical support.

North Carolina medical malpractice attorney Clifford Britt is an AV-rated* lawyer with more than 20 years of litigation experience. He is also a member of the Birth Trauma Litigation Group of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. In 2005-06, he served as President of the North Carolina Academy of Trial Lawyers.

Our past success enables us to accept birth injury cases under a contingent fee arrangement. In other words, only if we win a settlement or jury verdict for you do we collect an attorney's fee.

Examples of birth injuries that frequently result from the negligence of an obstetrician or nurse include the following:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brachial plexus
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Erb's palsy
  • Group B strep infection
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Other birth trauma resulting in brain damage, disability, or death

At Comerford & Britt, we offer our clients highly personalized and responsive service and representation by attorneys whose credentials and record of success compare favorably with those at any law firm in North Carolina.
