Hawaii Birth Injury Lawyers
What are commonly known as birth injuries may in fact occur as a result of circumstances at any stage of pregnancy, birth, or the infant's care after birth. Obstetricians, obstetrical nurses, medical technicians, and hospital personnel are responsible for following accepted standards of care throughout prenatal care, labor, delivery, and neonatal care.
When a baby is injured due to negligence in the pregnancy or birthing process, parents are advised to consult a birth injury attorney to determine how that baby can be helped through legal action.
Contact a Hawaii birth injury attorney to schedule a free initial consultation. Take the time necessary to talk over the facts and circumstances of your baby's birth injury as you understand them.

Birth Injuries Caused by Medical Negligence
At the Honolulu law offices of Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks, we represent families dealing with devastating effects of a birth injury:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb's Palsy
- Forceps injuries
- Brain damage
- Complications from delaying a C-section
- Injuries or conditions caused by undiagnosed prenatal complications
Attorney Rick Fried was the lead counsel in a birth injury lawsuit that resulted in a record $16.5 million verdict against U.S. Army-run Tripler Medical Center in Honolulu in 2006. A baby born there in 2005 suffered irreparable brain damage after being given carbon dioxide rather than oxygen immediately following his otherwise normal Cesarean birth. Our office obtained a $9.4 million court judgment for birth injuries again in 2007.
