Baltimore, MD -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/11/2017 -- At the law firm of Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz, their lawyers synthesize their years of legal and medical experience, serving families and malpractice victims across the Baltimore area. Being that some of their attorneys have practiced as doctors themselves, the Baltimore law firm also specializes in conditions like cerebral palsy. Aware of the emotional and financial burden that is a birth injury, they wield all the tools and resources at their disposal, representing their clients and their causes. In fact, Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz would like to announce that they are handling legal cases involving the misdiagnosis of the condition known as volvulus.

A result of the malformation of the intestine during fetal growth, an intestinal volvulus can affect newborns in the first few weeks of birth—endangering their health and lives. The attorneys of Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz leverage their medical and legal knowledge to pinpoint how an intestinal volvulus could have occurred and—most critically—what could have prevented it from arising.

Once any blockage of the intestinal tract is visible, it is the medical and personal responsibility of a physician to identify the potential dangers of intestinal volvulus. As the intestines twist in a fetus, they block blood flow to other vital organs, damaging the intestine in the process. Should an infant be born with intestinal volvulus, symptoms appear within the first week of life, be it as bowel obstructions or blood in a baby's stool.

The cerebral palsy and birth injury attorneys of Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz have the personal experience and knowledge to deduce when and where a doctor or hospital is at fault. With the hope of restoring a peace of mind and stability to every affected family, they work passionately and tirelessly on behalf of their clients.

Any family that may be suffering from a birth injury or death related to intestinal volvulus should contact the Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz law firm at 877-292-6491.
