Do I have a case?

Assessing your case.

      Most of the time, Cytotec disasters are the result of poor care. The immediate cause of the injury is excessive stimulation of the uterus, but there may be malpractice in failing to recognize that this mother or baby (or both) were not suitable candidates for an induced labor; failing anticipate a difficult delivery, failing to monitor and control the mother's contractions;  hyperstimulating the labor with drugs; failing to perform intrauterine resuscitation; failing to timely consider or offer a cesarean section, failing to recognize that a very big baby was coming; performing an induction solely for convenience; failing to recognize a pelvis that may be too small or odd-shaped to allow an uncomplicated birth;  or many other causes.   

      The only way to assess whether there is a case or not, is to do a careful review and analysis of the mother's and baby's pre-natal, delivery, and newborn records.

How do I find the right lawyer?

    Hiring just any attorney is easy. Hiring the best attorney for your case is a bit more difficult. 

      Cytotec / Misoprostol litigation is a sophisticated sub-speciality of medical malpractice law, which is itself a difficult specialty. You should retain an attorney who has handled several such cases and has a proven record of good results. You don't want a beginner learning the ropes of Erb's Palsy litigation using your case for their learning experience.
