Birth Injury & Cerebral Palsy Cases

Dr. Archuleta has delivered many babies; we have a clear understanding of the medicine and law with injuries that occur in military hospitals, including:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brain injury
  • Brachial plexus injury
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Other birth injuries

The emotional and financial stress the entire family experiences in these cases is often nearly unbearable. We understand your pain and we truly want to help.

We have achieved three of the highest verdicts and three of the highest settlements in the history of the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) in birth injury cases, against the Air Force, Army, and Navy.

Contact us right away to discuss whether you have a claim for birth injury or cerebral palsy.
