Transcript: In handling birth injury cases, it really is important that you have a good handle on the medical aspects of the case. The defendants, they hire excellent lawyers. They get their own experts. And they’re going to fight vigorously to defend the case. They’re going to do their very best to contend that they were not negligent and that the child’s injuries were the result of other things besides their negligence. For example, they’re going to contend that the baby’s injuries were not the result of a lack of oxygen. Often these cases require looking carefully at the electronic fetal monitor strip. Often we have to consult with various experts in the field, including obstetricians, maternal/fetal medicine experts, placental pathology experts, neurology experts, neonatology experts. All of those various areas of medicine can come into play in these cases.
