Arkansas Birth Injury Lawyers
The moment your child is born is a time of unprecedented joy. Unfortunately, the medical staff you entrust with your care can make mistakes during this special time. These mistakes can cause birth injuries – severe complications and lasting life-long issues for children. If you or a loved one experienced a birth injury in Arkansas, you may be able to obtain compensation for care, future medical expenses and other needs.
ABC Law Centers (Reiter & Walsh, P.C.) exclusively handles birth injury cases. We have first-hand experience working with co-counsel in Arkansas on birth injury cases. Our unique focus means that we have a thorough knowledge of the complex medical aspects of birth trauma cases.
Birth injury is very complex, with many different associated diagnoses. For example, a brain bleed (intracranial hemorrhage) might happen at the same time as asphyxia (HIE), resulting in cerebral palsy and or other disabilities. The root cause of these diagnoses may be a medical error, such as a medical staff member failing to recognize the signs of a prolonged labor. Because of these interrelated factors, having a lawyer who focuses only on birth injury is invaluable. It is critical to discuss a potential case with an attorney as soon as possible – in Arkansas, you have two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit.
Some of the more common birth injury cases (and mismanaged conditions that can lead to birth injuries) our attorneys have handled include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Hypoxic-ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)
- Traumatic Delivery
- Overusing Pitocin, Cytotec or anesthesia
- Face or breech presentation

- Meconium Aspiration Syndrome (MAS)
