Helping Clients Get Paid for Nearly 50 years
Thanks to the efforts of medical researchers and advances in modern medical science, childbirth is not nearly as dangerous as it used to be. Even so, mysteries still exist, and there is still a lot that can go wrong in the delivery room. In other words, not every birth injury is preventable. Some, however, are.
If you and your family are coping with this kind of tragedy right now, don’t wait too long before talking with an attorney who has experience with birth injury lawsuits. Prompt investigation is crucial, and there are limits on how much time you have in which to file a claim.

How We Can Help
Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi was founded in 1970 and has been helping victims of medical malpractice in the Memphis Tri-State Area ever since. Being in practice for that long means something. It means that we know what the laws are and how they’ve evolved over time. It means knowing what should and should not happen in the delivery room, as well as what evidence to look for in the medical records.
Most importantly, it means knowing doctors who are qualified and willing to testify for plaintiffs they believe have been harmed by medical negligence. Why is that so important? Because, without a doctor who will do that (and they’re not easy to find), you cannot even get into court.
A Heavy Price You Shouldn’t Have to Pay
No one expects doctors to be perfect. At the same time, every patient has the right to expect quality care. When doctors are overworked, trying to handle too many patients at once, or are simply too confident in their own decision-making skills and abilities, patients can pay a heavy price.
In birth injury cases, medical mistakes can mean a lifetime of healthcare needs for a child. When a doctor fails to check the oxygen levels or the heart rate monitor, a would-be-healthy baby could be born with cerebral palsy or serious brain damage. If a doctor fails to perform a Cesarean section or waits too long, nerve damage or conditions such as Erb’s palsy or Klumpke’s palsy could result.
We understand that catastrophic injury cases are different, and we work closely with various experts, as needed, to develop a life care plan that will ensure appropriate care, dignity, and quality of life for your child.
