Houston, Texas Birth Injuries Lawyer
Your Houston, TX Birth Injury Attorney
Having a child should be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. However, if the child is severely injured or dies during birth, it is devastating to the family. Sometimes there may be a member of the healthcare team that is responsible for the tragedy.
If your family has suffered from a birth injury, Joyce Stamp Lilly, R.N., J.D., can help. She is both an experienced attorney and a licensed registered nurse in Texas. As a birth injury attorney, she offers free initial consultations and does any later work on contingency, charging no attorneys’ fees until a recovery is made.
Compensation for a Lifetime of Medical Expenses
A family suffering from a serious birth trauma deserves compensation not only for immediate medical bills, pain and suffering, etc., but also for a lifetime of medical care, treatment, and therapy. A few of the most common conditions that cause lifetime disabilities are:
- Cerebral palsy: brain injury, cognitive or physical disabilities
- Erb’s palsy: shoulder dystocia, brachial plexus birth injury, brachial palsy
- Paralysis: paraplegia, quadriplegia
- Hypoxia: lack of oxygen to the brain
- Brain damage
- Misread sonogram, misdiagnosis of chromosomal abnormality
- Misuse of forceps or vacuum
Because few Texas birth injury attorneys also have experience as registered nurses, Ms. Lilly is often hired by fellow lawyers to assist with their medical malpractice cases. She can capably evaluate medical issues, provide consolation to clients, and also analyze the legal issues involved in a case.
