Compassionate And Dedicated Birth Injury Representation

Birth injuries usually occur when doctors or nursing staff fail to follow established standard treatment protocols. As a result, problems with the position of an infant inside a mother's womb or the oxygen saturation of the baby's blood can go unnoticed and undiagnosed.

At the Law Offices of Jeffrey I. Amtman, our birth injury lawyer works with nationally recognized obstetricians and other medical experts in identifying negligence on the part of doctors and other health care professionals. Our attorney subpoenas hospital records in order to review when fetal monitoring began, what drugs were or were not administered, when warning signs first occurred, and why nothing was done to prevent injury to our client's baby. We expose negligence by focusing on departures from accepted standard treatment protocols and industry accepted best practices.

Determining The Cost Of A Birth Injury

Parents and children face a lifetime of medical needs as a result of a birth injury. At the Law Offices of Jeffrey I. Amtman, our attorney works with experienced economists and life care planners when estimating costs associated with future medical treatment, special education, medical equipment, lost wages, and loss in quality of life. Our office presents cost-data analyses based on information collected by HMOs and the insurance industry. We work hard to make sure our clients recover a fair, equitable award or settlement in order to take care of their child's needs.

Securing Your Child's Interests And Future

Once your case is decided and a settlement or award has been finalized, a number of tough financial questions remain: how should monetary damages be managed? What if something should happen to you or your spouse? How will your child care for themselves as adults?

At the Law Offices of Jeffrey I. Amtman, we provide clients with peace of mind by explaining and discussing several options available to them for making sure their child's current and future needs are paid for. Our attorney discusses several estate planning options including special needs trusts, irrevocable / revocable trusts, and how you can transfer assets to ensure your child's future needs will be taken care of.
