Did your child suffer a spinal cord injury during labor and delivery? While many birth injuries of this type are unavoidable, others are the result of the doctor's negligence. If you believe that this may be the cause of your child's injury, an Atlanta medical malpractice attorney from The Tolson Firm, LLC may be able to help you file a medical malpractice lawsuit with the goal of recovering compensation. Spinal cord injuries often leave the victim with a lifetime of disability. Your child may require ongoing treatment, nursing care and expensive medical equipment, and may never be able to achieve full independence and self-sufficiency.
We want to help your family receive the settlement you deserve. Medical doctors have extensive training and technology for safeguarding the health of patients, and when they make careless mistakes or fail to take the necessary actions, they can and should be held accountable. Ms. Tolson was personally recruited by famed attorney Johnnie Cochran to be the first lawyer in the local office of his practice, and has since gone on to be named among the Top 100 Female Lawyers and Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Georgia for four consecutive years. With over 17 years of experience, we have successfully litigated dozens of multi-million dollar settlements for our clients, and are ready to begin work on your case today.
Spinal cord injuries can occur as a result of a variety of labor & delivery problems, but when they are the result of a doctor's mistake, you should not hesitate to take legal action. This type of birth injury can lead to paraplegia & quadriplegia, depending on what section of the spine is affected. Call us as soon as possible, as the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit could prevent you from being able to recover compensation.
