Serving Nationwide Cases
The birth of a child is a joyous occasion. But if your child is injured during birth, or if he or she is born with birth defects, it can be devastating—both emotionally and financially. Healthcare professionals are responsible for your child’s safety and well-being before, during, and after birth, but sometimes their mistakes and negligence cause injuries and birth defects.
At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, it’s our goal to help families get the compensation they deserve after their children are injured or harmed during birth. We know that birth defects and injuries can lead to lifelong medical bills, expensive treatments, and pain and suffering. We want to help you get the money you need to pay for these expenses.

Common Birth Injuries
Many birth injuries are severe and life-changing for both children and their families. Our birth injury lawyers in Dallas are dedicated to helping families throughout the United States move past these often-preventable injuries, such as:
Cerebral palsy occurs when an infant’s brain is denied oxygen during birth. Such injuries may be caused if the umbilical cord becomes wrapped around the baby’s neck, which can cut off his or her air supply. Babies with cerebral palsy often have difficulty moving and swallowing.
Erb’s palsy occurs when the nerves between a baby’s shoulders and spine are damaged. This may be caused if excessive pulling or pressure is used on the shoulders during delivery. Babies with Erb’s palsy may have problems with coordination and movement, and surgical treatment is often required.
Doctors and nurses must be vigilant at all times during childbirth. If they are careless during delivery or fail to notice or treat symptoms of complications in time, serious injuries can happen. At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, our Dallas birth injury lawyers are dedicated to holding negligent healthcare providers accountable for the injuries they cause.
