Client satisfaction is our number one goal and our results demonstrate just how successful we are in achieving that goal. The medical malpractice and birth injury lawyers at WVFO have resolved over $500 million dollars in birth injury cases. In addition, they have obtained five jury verdicts in excess of $15,000,000 in the past twelve years. Those verdicts include a $55 million dollar verdict against Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore City, a $33.5 million dollar verdict in Tennessee, a $21 million dollar verdict against MedStar Harbor Hospital in Maryland, a $15.5 million dollar verdict in Minnesota, and a $15.6 million dollar verdict against a midwife and doctor in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
OUR FOCUS ON MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR DISABLED CHILDREN – BRAIN DAMAGE AND CEREBRAL PALSY
Children with brain damage, cerebral palsy, or developmental delay require extensive care and treatment throughout their lifetimes. That care can cost over $25 million dollars over the course of a disabled child’s life. Is Medicaid or Medicare going to pay for it? Will private insurance cover the costs? Who will take care of my child when we die? These are some of the most common questions parents ask when they hire the lawyers at WVFO.
If a doctor or hospital committed medical malpractice and caused your child’s disability those financial burdens should not be on you. They should be born by those responsible for causing your child’s injuries. Thus, our number one goal is to make sure there is enough money paid by the defendants – either through settlement or verdict – to take care of your child for the rest of their life. That money is then put into a Special Needs Trust or a Settlement Preservation Trust to ensure that your child is taken care of long after you are gone.
We get over 500 inquires a year from parents wanting to know if their child’s brain damage, developmental delay, or cerebral palsy was the result of a medical error or medical malpractice. We excel at these types of cases, which is why we receive so many inquiries from all over the country. What sets us apart is that we leave no stone unturned. Our investigation process, lead by our experienced lawyers, begins with obtaining the medical records. We then evaluate the case from every single possible angle. Was it a birth injury from hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy? Was an error made during the labor and delivery process? Did the prenatal doctors fail to detect a problem during the prenatal period? Did the neonatal team fail to timely treat a newborn infection or newborn hypoglycemia? Could pre-term labor been stopped or prevented? Was a sick newborn sent home from the hospital too soon? These are just a few examples.
If there is a case to be pursued, our team of birth injury lawyers will find it. Even if other lawyers have told you there is no case, there is no downside to letting us investigate your child’s case. We often succeed where others have failed, the case reviews are free, and there is no fee unless we obtain compensation for you or your child.
