Trust worthy, honest, efficient, and effective – all words that describe John Edwards and his staff! Working with the team at Hepworth Holzer helped me focus on getting well and not on the financial worries of my situation.

Kathy Crowley

John Edwards and his staff are excellent. They took the time to explain the process completely and worked hard to ensure I would get the most out of my settlement. John is a very caring lawyer who cares more about his cleint then the possible gain from the end results. He was able to work with my insurance company to lower their reimbursement to the lowest possible amount and even ensured I would be taken care of with furture clains by waiving co-pays for my shoulder and neck injury.

Lee Morris

Mr Holzer has an above-and-beyond, do the right thing approach to life. He is caring and thorough. I’m grateful to know him and have his assistance!

Sarah Brown

Charlie Hepworth provided excellent legal services to my husband and I. In 2015, I was struck by a semi-truck on the connector and spent five weeks in the hospital. Charlie was referred to us by a friend and we were so fortunate to have him on board. He was compassionate, knowledgeable, highly experienced, and guided us every step of the way. We are pleased with the outcome and having Charlie on our team certainly made the long process of recovery a bit easier.

I am writing specifically about John Kluksdal. The work that he did for me was nothing but amazing. When it was time to go into my settlement hearing, he worked extremely hard and was able to get a justifiable settlement. He’s great!

Defining Birth Injuries

Unlike other types of personal injury cases, like auto accidents, it is not always immediately apparent that there was some wrongdoing with a birth injury. You may not recognize that there is a birth injury until potentially weeks, months and sometimes years after the baby is born.

You may not realize that your child’s disability was linked to the negligence of the doctor delivering the baby all that time ago but you still deserve justice.

Birth injury cases are brought by Boise birth injury lawyers against the doctors or nurses who are found liable for the harm done to the baby. The case is filed in court and your lawyer gets to work building a strong case. This includes gathering evidence and talking to witnesses, if there were any, and looking at your medical records. We use this information to fight for your rights.

Determining if the Birth Injury Could Have Been Prevented

We recognize that every case is going to vary from the next but what every true birth injury case has in common is that they could have been avoided with proper care.

Doctors and nurses have to go through years of training and they should know better. If we can prove that they acted in a way that was negligent and other doctors who followed a standard of care would have acted differently, we can firmly say they caused your baby harm. This is medical malpractice and your Boise birth injury lawyers will fight for your justice.

How Birth Injuries Are Medical Malpractice

Not every mistake that the doctors make is going to be considered medical malpractice. Malpractice is when a medical care professional fails to care for their patients in a way that is conducive to a standard of care and, as a result, causes harm.

Here are some examples specifically for birth injury:

  • Infections going undiagnosed in the mother while pregnant
  • Excessive force during delivery causing injuries like erb’s palsy
  • Medications given improperly

Common Types of Birth Injuries

The following is some of the most commonly seen types of injuries during birth:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Brain damage

The CDC reported that cerebral palsy happens when a baby gets brain damaged either during, before or after delivery. If there is a drop in oxygen in the baby and the brain does not get enough oxygen, then there can be brain damage. There also may be brain damage from trauma or a brain bleed. Right now, there is nothing that cures cerebral palsy but there are treatments designed to improve the symptoms.

Erb’s Palsy happens to babies who are stuck while the mother is in active labor. Getting stuck can cause them to have nerve damage. Sometimes that means there is paralysis or weakness to their extremities. A baby can suffer Erb’s palsy if their delivering doctor uses excessive force during the process. Erb’s palsy can be treated over months or years but not every child recovers.

Brain damage is a common birth injury because they are so delicate and fragile.

Client Reviews

stars

“During one of the most difficult times my family has ever gone through, the firm of Hepworth Holzer was our saving grace. Kurt Holzer, John Kluksdahl, and the rest of the firm worked tirelessly to get justice for our mother who was needlessly killed as a result of a drunken driving crash involving a negligent company. They not only secured an unprecedented settlement for my sisters and I, but also supported us during the criminal trial. I could not recommend this firm more!”
