William Hawal Esq.: Birth injury cases are unique in a number of respects. First of all, the life-shattering impact of having a child with severe physical and perhaps mental disability is devastating to a family.
Peter H. Weinberger Esq.: Birth injury cases usually result in an injury known as cerebral palsy, and it’s usually the result of a lack of oxygen to the brain, at some point either prior to or the point of delivery.
Nicholas A. Dicello Esq.: We’re always looking toward trial. I think a lot of lawyers…Litigation can take a long time. It can take years. And there are a lot of different pathways toward a good result. And a lot of the cases that we take on don’t end up in a trial and we still obtain great results. But we’re always willing to take the case to trial. This firm has a strong legacy of trial lawyers, going back to the founder of the firm, Craig Spangenberg. Craig is in the trial lawyer hall of fame, because he is a hall of fame trial lawyer. And so, each one of us can try to follow and uphold that legacy, and to date, I know we’ve done it successfully.
Peter: In the end, these cases do provide appropriate and fair compensation to families that are unfortunately having to deal with children who are severely disabled for a lifetime.
