Seeking Justice for Parents of Children Suffering Birth Injuries

The choice for recovery if you suspect medical negligence

If doctors, hospitals or midwives make a mistake during the birth of a child, we know parents look for — and deserve — answers. At The Law Firm of John C. Hensley, Jr., P.C., we’ve been helping parents across North Carolina navigate the enormous amounts of evidence — and offering the necessary compassion and patience — to unravel and understand the complexities of birth injury cases.

What does a birth injury include?

Although birth injuries are relatively rare, when a medical error occurs or the doctor and hospital delivery team that delivered the child deviate from normal standards of care, they may be responsible for lifelong consequences caused by:

  • Intracranial hemorrhage
  • Group B Streptococcus infections
  • Paralysis
  • Fractures
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Meningitis
  • Cranial nerve trauma

Managing attorney John C. Hensley, Jr. has devoted years to protecting the legal rights and interests of children who have suffered birth injury and their families. When obstetrical negligence — medical malpractice during birth or in the prenatal period — and birth injuries plague parents and their children, the conditions are often lifelong and debilitating. These injuries, especially when caused by negligence or inattention, often cause rippling effects that can put excessive and unbearable strain on a family.

Why is an experienced North Carolina birth injury lawyer so important?

At The Law Firm of John C. Hensley, Jr., P.C., our lawyers can review your case and work with our in-house and external experts, including doctors, midwives, nurses and others who understand the process. Choosing an attorney who focuses on cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy and other birth injuries can be the most important decision you make. You deserve an experienced attorney who has a thorough understanding of the complex medical and legal issues involved. Our attorneys work with medical, financial and other experts to assemble a strong case to prove that your child did not receive the care required, resulting in injuries that could have been avoided if proper protocols had been followed. Further, we compute the past expenses and future costs of your child’s medical treatment, specialized equipment and attendant care to make sure that when you obtain a recovery you can comfortably take care of your child’s needs.
