New Mexico Birth Injury Attorneys

The heartache and worry parents endure when they learn that their newborn child suffered a birth injury such as brain damage, cerebral palsy or another disabling condition defy description in words. Long-term costs associated with giving your son or daughter the best life possible are overwhelming to consider. You may also be wrestling with the belief that preventable mistakes during labor and delivery or prenatal care caused this extremely serious outcome.

Decades Of Experience Taking Action For Disabled Children And Their Families

At Bencoe & LaCour Law, PC, our attorneys have more than 35 years of collective experience seeking just compensation for children and families harmed by medical malpractice. This experience includes filing, litigating and recovering substantial monetary settlements for parents and families in birth injury cases.

Cerebral Palsy And Other Brain Injuries · Serious Labor And Delivery Mistakes

Any allegation of OB-GYN malpractice or hospital negligence demands rigorous investigation and thorough examination of all medical records. Our lawyers' understanding of the science associated with brain injuries and other birth defects, together with our excellent working relationships with highly qualified physicians and other health care experts, equips us well to evaluate your potential case involving:

  • Cerebral palsy or other brain damage caused by oxygen deprivation — often due to failure to perform a timely C-section or another form of intervention
  • Insufficient fetal monitoring of a mother's labor as a reason for failing to intervene to help with a baby's delivery
  • Failing to perform proper, adequate prenatal or antenatal tests for a baby's safety (such as ultrasounds, nonstress tests, and tests for hypoglycemia and jaundice)
  • Improper use of vacuum extraction, forceps, or other techniques resulting in brain injury, shoulder dystocia, Erb's palsy or other life-altering physical injuries to your child
  • Failure to diagnose ectopic pregnancy or another serious condition that poses significant risk of harm to a mother or her baby

Our legal team in Albuquerque is dedicated to holding health care corporations and insurance companies accountable for medical negligence. It is our belief that exposing unsafe practices and policies — often driven by putting profitability above people's critical needs and interests — is essential for protecting others from similar outcomes.
