As a medical malpractice attorney, Mr. Zachar represents parents whose newborns undergo birthing injuries. Our firm provides compassionate representation to parents whose newborns suffer from tragic medical problems that could have been prevented. During labor and delivery, the OB/GYN and nurses observe fetal monitoring strips and signs of distress in the mother and fetus. Traumas to newborn babies result when doctors, nurses, and other medical professional are negligent in their care. A forced delivery can result in a broken clavicle. Cerebral palsy and other brain damage can result when oxygen flow is cut off to the baby during the birth. Erb’s palsy occurs when the brachial plexus nerves are damaged. Mr. Zachar diligently pursues compensation for the injured child. A birth injury such as cerebral palsy will result in a lifetime of special accommodations for the injured child. Although no amount of monetary compensation can reverse the injury, obtaining compensation offers families the financial means to accommodate the child’s lifestyle.
Failure to Diagnose Meningitis in Children
Bacterial meningitis is an infection of the fluids in the spinal cord and surrounding the brain. Bacterial meningitis can go undiagnosed in children because of its flu-like symptoms. What is really a serious, life threatening illness is often diagnosed as a bacterial or viral infection rather than bacterial meningitis. If detected early enough, bacterial meningitis can be treated with antibiotics. However, when it is not treated, bacterial meningitis can result in brain damage, hearing loss, mental retardation, paralysis, and even death.
