In Their Own Words

“Cody wasn’t breathing, they put him on machines obviously and kept him alive and did all kinds of tests on him. He was in the hospital for 8 days but when we were released I was told he was fine, he’d be fine, but that wasn’t the case. He did get a cerebral palsy diagnosis.”

A Philadelphia Birth Injury Attorney Finds Out[/heading_3]

[subheading_4]Cody’s father knew something was drastically wrong during the labor and delivery because the nurses were frantically trying to find a doctor. As, Cody’s mother, Mary* discovered, the events surrounding her labor and Cody’s delivery would change their lives forever.

During the last month of her pregnancy, Mary’s membranes ruptured. She went to the hospital, already having contractions, and was given medication to quicken the birth of her child. After several hours, Cody’s heart rate began fluctuating and he was in distress.

“Cody wasn’t breathing, they put him on machines obviously and kept him alive and did all kinds of tests on him. He was in the hospital for 8 days but when we were released I was told he was fine, he’d be fine, but that wasn’t the case. He did get a cerebral palsy diagnosis.”

As his mom later concluded, the hospital’s hesitation in giving her a diagnosis was clear, the hospital knew if they looked at what happened in detail during her labor and delivery they would find the answer to “Why did it happen?’.

Faced with a lifetime of medical and specialized educational expenses, Cody’s parents didn’t know where to turn. Cody’s grandmother found my firm, Villari, Brandes & Giannone.

“I noticed he was not developing right and something was definitely wrong and nobody was coming forward no matter how many doctor’s appointments he had with his pediatrician. They never mentioned that there was anything wrong with Cody.”

We conducted a thorough investigation of Mary’s labor and delivery.
The answer, in Cody’s case, was preventable oxygen deprivation.

“I am so grateful, you can’t imagine how grateful I am for what he has done for Cody. From the bottom of my heart, I’ve never seen the man, but I love him for what he has done.”

The consequences to Cody and his family were life altering. As a result of successful litigation, Cody’s parents are able to get beyond just surviving and secure a future for Cody. They rest assured that he will receive the intensive daily care and support he needs throughout his life, even after they are gone.

  1. Proof that you always follow your gut feelings and look into anything that does not seem to feel right. Any amount of care that you may think is not living up to the health standards we all deserve. Any question no matter how small it may seem is worth asking this excellent group of lawyers. They are so knowledgable, experienced, kind, caring and down to earth. It’s like talking to a cousin or uncle who has 100% empathy for what you have been through. And they taught me things about my sons medical records that I would have never known. I love them all and think of them as our extended family.
