Washington’s Birth Injury Attorneys
Was your child born with a serious medical condition? Do you believe the condition was caused by doctor negligence and could have been prevented had the doctor taken the appropriate steps? You may have the right to seek compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other expenses.
The attorneys at Swanson Gardner Meyers, PLLC, understand that the emotions you are feeling seem overwhelming. Birth injuries due to professional negligence may require lifelong medical attention. We care, and we will do all we can to secure financial compensation for expenses incurred as a result of medical negligence.
One of our clients carried a perfectly normal, healthy boy, until complications arose close to term. When she reported the complications, the hospital performed the wrong test – and the condition remained undiagnosed. The baby suffered brain damage, cerebral palsy, cortical blindness, and other repercussions. Our firm litigated, and the jury returned a $17 million dollar verdict to pay for the 24-hour care the child will require for the rest of his life.
In another jury trial, a unanimous jury returned a $50 million dollar verdict for our clients against Valley Medical Center in Renton and Laboratory Corporation of America for failing to accurately identify a severe genetic abnormality in testing done during our client’s pregnancy. The verdict was upheld in the Court of Appeals.
We believe that these and many other successful verdicts and settlements are due to the corporatization of medicine, where the bottom line becomes more important than the practice of medicine.
