Sexual abuse cases

Child sexual abuse has been reported up to 80,000 times a year, but the number of unreported instances is far greater. The problem needs to be identified, the abuse stopped, and the child should receive professional help. The long-term emotional and
psychological damage of sexual abuse can be devastating to the child.

We are not able to start a criminal prosecution, but we are able to investigate a start a civil lawsuit and have the experience of helping victims of sexual abuse. Starting a civil lawsuit against the abuser can help pay for the costs of therapy and counseling that are necessary for any child sexually abused.

If your child has been a victim of sexual abuse, we may be able to help.

Birth injuries

Injuries during the birthing process can occur because of:

  • A large baby - birth weight over 4,000 grams (8 pounds, 13 ounces)
  • Abnormal presentation - such as breech, where the baby is delivered buttocks first
  • Premature babies - those born before 37 weeks
  • A long labor
  • Injury to the baby's arm or shoulder known as shoulder dystocia
  • Injury to the baby's brachial plexus nerves, called Erb's Palsy
  • Fractures to the baby's clavicle or collarbone
  • Use of forceps or vacuum devices to deliver the baby can cause injury to the baby's head and face
  • A baby who is not breathing on their own when they are born.

If you believe your child suffered an injury during their birth, he or she may be able to receive compensation for their injuries. You should talk to a knowledgeable birth injury lawyer. Your baby may need therapy or surgery to address a birth injury. If a health care provider, doctor, midwife or nurse was responsible for that birth injury, they should be responsible for paying for the care your child needs.

If your baby's birth injury was caused by a preventable medical error, we will explain your legal rights and options and protect your child's future needs.
