The following is an editorial from our founder, Ken Stern:
As a legal practitioner for over thirty years, I have built my practice on representing families raising children who sustained birth injuries. Every day, children are born normally and without incident in the United States. However, there are some babies who are less fortunate and may sustain severe birth injuries during pregnancy, the labor and delivery process, or even after birth. When this happens, their brave parents have to soldier on and raise children that are challenged at different severity levels while wondering ‘what went wrong?’ and ‘why?
Expectant mothers have high hopes for their children, but when complications arise during their labor and delivery, they are left shattered when their children are sometimes left severely challenged due to medical errors or mistakes that could have easily been prevented. Parents then have to make major adjustments to their lives that they never anticipated so they can attend to the special needs of their children, which often is a highly expensive undertaking.
Accordingly, my aim and focus is to serve as advocate for such parents and fight for them and their little ones to receive the financial support they need so that child can lead as normal a life as possible. That is why I have also built my career on educating parents on behalf of their children, along with the general population, regarding birth injuries caused by the medical negligence or malpractice of medical professionals so they can pinpoint the telltale signs of negligence.
