Sometimes, the disorder is caused by a genetic defect, but many cases are preventable and caused by the negligence of medical staff. When preparing to file a lawsuit, it is important to hire an attorney who is highly skilled in California birth injury law. Interview personal injury lawyers to determine who has successfully won medical malpractice lawsuits for birth injuries and the amount of monetary damages each one has been able to obtain for his clients. Remember, however, that each case is different, and the financial compensation won will vary from case to case. Howard C. Kornberg is AV-rated* by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating given to attorneys for legal trial skills and ethical standards. He is a member of ABOTA, the American Board of Trial Advocates.

  • Involuntary movements
  • Poor balance and depth perception
