Jim Beasley, Sr. and Marsha Santangelo tried a six-week-long medical negligence case on behalf of a brain injured child.

Fallon v Snyder: Jim Beasley, Sr. and Marsha Santangelo tried a six-week-long medical negligence case on behalf of a brain injured child. The suit involved obstetrical negligence which caused a mother to deliver her baby prematurely and immediately after the birth, another doctor caring for the premature baby in the delivery room put the breathing tube into the baby’s esophagus instead of the lungs. Because the lungs were not receiving oxygen, the baby suffered from oxygen deprivation and severe brain damage.

The largest judgment ever against a single individual, against Ira Einhorn for the murder of his girlfriend, Holly Maddux.

Estate of Holly Maddux v. Ira Einhorn: We obtained the largest judgment ever against a single individual, a $907 million verdict against Ira Einhorn for the murder of his girlfriend, Holly Maddux. Perhaps known as the most egregious murder in Philadelphia’s history, committed by one of the city’s most infamous sociopaths, Jim Beasley Sr. took on the case when he learned from the Maddux family that Einhorn was planning to write a book, which would have handsomely compensated him for telling his story. The Beasley Firm’s victory stopped Einhorn from ever seeing a penny in profit from his horrible crime and murder. The firm handled the case for free.

$104 million for September 11th victims, the first September 11th verdict.

Smith v Republic of Iraq et al: The firm won a $104 million verdict in 2003 on behalf of the families of victims of the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks, the first September 11th verdict. The verdict was directed against the Republic of Iraq, al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, the Taliban, and the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. The case was tried before a Federal Judge in Manhattan. The lawyers from The Beasley Firm were the first and only to prove that the Republic of Iraq provided “material support or resources” to, and conspired with, Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda network of terrorists. The Beasley Firm lawyers took a shrewd approach, focusing on only six defendants. We deployed expert witnesses in masterful fashion, with testimony powerful enough to convince a federal judge that a credible cause of action existed. It was a case widely scoffed at by legal observers when it was first filed. No one thought The Beasley Firm lawyers could marshal sufficiently compelling evidence. Instead, with the assistance of former CIA director R. James Woolsey, and Laurie Mylroie, Ph.D., as well as compelling satellite photos, statements from foreign Ambassadors, and volumes of exhibits, The Beasley Firm obtained the world’s first 9-11 verdict.

Birth Injury FAQs

What Are The Most Common Birth Injuries?

What Causes Birth Injuries?

  • Failure of the nurse or doctor to monitor baby or respond to fetal distress
  • Failure to control high blood pressure, eclampsia, or seizures in the mother
  • Failure to treat an infection or administer antibiotics
  • Excessive force or pulling during delivery of a baby
  • Administering too much Pitocin or Oxytocin
  • Failure to recognize or treat a placental abruption
  • Delayed or incorrectly performed C-section

Birth injuries can be caused by negligence on behalf of your obstetrician, nurse midwife, family practitioner, delivery doctor, nurse, nurse practitioner, paramedic, anesthesiologist, pediatrician, hospital, medical facility, or neonatologist.

How Long Do I Have To File A Birth Injury Lawsuit?

Statutes of limitations, or how much time you have to file a lawsuit in a birth injury case, vary depending on the laws of the state where the medical malpractice occurred. In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations is two years and begins at the time the injury took place or discovered within a reasonable timeframe. Each case is different and each state is different regarding how long you have to file a lawsuit. That’s why it is so important to talk to an experienced birth injury attorney as soon as possible. Once a statute of limitation time frame expires, you will not be able to file a lawsuit no matter how severe the injury or damages are.

Does My Baby Have A Birth Defect Or A Birth Injury?

Birth injuries occur due to something that happened during labor and delivery. Birth defects develop during the developmental or growing stages of the baby during the pregnancy. 

What Should I Do If I Think My Baby Suffered A Birth Injury?

Just like many other mothers who experienced something go wrong during labor or delivery of their baby, you turned to the Internet for answers to your questions. The injured person, family, or loved one usually has a gut feeling that something just wasn’t right during the delivery. The only way to really know if you have a medical malpractice case is to contact a highly qualified law firm to evaluate your issues and concerns. Our specialized birth injury team is made up of doctors and nurses that have collectively worked over 25 years in the hospital. Two of our nurses, while working in the hospital setting, witnessed thousands of births and the devastating outcomes if the labor and birth were not monitored or treated properly. 

How Can I Afford To Hire A Lawyer?

Plaintiff attorneys, or the lawyers that help injured victims, usually do not ask for any money up front to work on your case. Most plaintiff lawyers will work your case at their expense. If there is an award, settlement, or recovery, the expense to work up your case is deducted from the amount you were awarded. Here at The Beasley Firm, if no award is won, you will not owe us any money.
