Geoff Pope Joins Birth Trauma Litigation Group

On April 28th, founding partner Geoff Pope joined the county’s leading birth trauma litigators at the American Association of Justice’s Birth Trauma Litigation Group. The round table discussion, which took place in Chicago, Illinois, focused on birth trauma legal cases in light of the new legislative limits on malpractice personal injury cases.

Pope was invited to speak by the American Association of Justice because of his extensive experience with medical malpractice cases. Pope, with partner Marc Howard, has achieved numerous million-dollar recoveries and, more importantly, has secured patient safety measures at major healthcare facilities.

What is Birth Trauma?

An injury is considered a birth trauma if it occur immediately before, during or after the birth of a child.  These include a wide range of injuries and permanent disabilities including:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Brachial plexus palsy
  • Brain damage
  • Visual and audio impairments
  • Speech impediments
  • Learning disabilities
  • And even death.

Birth traumas most often occur when a physician fails quickly and appropriately respond to the conditions of the birth. Common causes of injury include failure to recognize pregnancy disorders, improper use of medical devices such as forceps, or failure to perform a necessary caesarian section.

What We Can Do

When a child suffers from a birth injury, families may be faced with expensive medical bills, lengthy rehabilitation, and a need for specialized treatment or care. In order to receive compensation, you must prove that the physician deviated from the acceptable standard of medical care expected from any reasonable person in the same profession. That’s where Pope & Howard can help. We have the knowledge and experience you need to fight for you child’s health and wellbeing.

If your child sustained an injury at birth, contact us today to schedule your free consultation.
