Indianapolis Infant Brain Injury Attorneys
Despite medical advancements in the birth process, doctor mistakes, hospital staff negligence and other forms of negligent medical management still cause most of the infant head injuries that result in permanent brain damage to babies. As an experienced Indiana medical malpractice law firm, Wagner Reese understands that many tragic infant brain injury cases are preventable.
Our skilled birth injury lawyers conduct a thorough investigation into the actions and decisions of all hospital staff involved before, during and after a birth-related brain injury. We carefully examine hospital records, interview witnesses and work with neurological experts and other medical specialists to determine the cause and extent of infant brain damage. Contact us to discuss your birth malpractice claim.
INFANT BRAIN INJURY CLAIMS MAY INCLUDE
- Cerebral palsy
- Fetal distress
- Improper fetal monitoring
- Umbilical cord compression
- Forceps injury
- Vacuum extractor injury

- Experience with Other Forms of Negligent Brain Injuries
In addition to birth-related infant brain injury, we also handle claims involving babies who are severely injured by negligent daycare providers as well as wrongful death cases due to head trauma from abuse or shaken baby syndrome.
From birth trauma to injuries to children, our Indianapolis-area law firm has a reputation for sound legal advice and aggressive representation throughout Indiana and nationwide. While hospitals and insurance companies may appear to have all the clout, we put power on your side. Our personal injury advocates won’t accept lowball settlements that do not fairly compensate you for the devastating personal and financial impact an infant brain injury can have on your family. We are prepared to take your case to court to protect your interests.
A Note about Medical Negligence
Medical negligence refers to the failure of a physician, medical professional, hospital or other medical service provider to meet the standards of conduct relating to their profession. The standards of conduct are based on what a medical professional with requisite training and skills would ordinarily be expected to do. For example: a doctor who prescribes the wrong medication may be negligent because the knowledge needed to give the correct prescription is considered to be an expected part of the profession or specialty.
A Note about Recovery Limits
Some states, including Indiana, have imposed laws that cap or limit the maximum amount of money an individual can recover in a medical malpractice suit. When you meet with us to discuss your medical malpractice claim, we will discuss current laws and limitations. Currently, the maximum amount recoverable from a qualified medical provider in Indiana is 1.25 million dollars.
