Obstetrical Malpractice

Helping You Find Answers

An instance of obstetrical malpractice can turn a highly anticipated birth into a tragic event. Because a birth injury affects the infant, parents and family, many people want answers about what went wrong. We can help you find those answers and seek compensation for your loss.

At Staples, Ellis + Associates, P.A., we have considerable experience with obstetrical malpractice cases. Attorney Thomas Staples has handled malpractice cases in Florida for nearly 40 years. He has also written a publication on obstetrical malpractice: Obstetrics, Gynecology and Florida Law (1996). He is a skilled litigator who will aggressively pursue your case. Please call 850-696-0314 today for a free initial consultation.

Birth Injuries and Problems During Pregnancy

We have handled many obstetrical malpractice cases involving injuries to infants, birth trauma and injuries to the mother, including:

  • Vaginal birth after caesarean section (VBAC)
  • Skull and brain damage caused by forceps
  • Nerve damage to infants
  • Brain injuries from being in the birth canal for too long
  • Wrongful death of the mother or infant

We Understand the Legal and Medical Issues

You need a lawyer who can help you work through your immediate needs and the long-term consequences of medical malpractice. For example, infants with brain damage can live a long time and incur enormous medical expense. Who will pay the medical bills and provide long-term care?

That is where our experience can be very valuable. We work with doctors and nurses who review each of our cases. They will meet with you to discuss your medical issues; they then help us develop the technical aspects of our legal arguments. We also hire additional medical experts to assist us when necessary.

You Do Not Have to Face It Alone
