The birth of a child is one of the most exciting and joyous experiences in the life of a parent. But when something goes wrong with the delivery, joy can quickly turn to despair. Frequently, parents are kept in the dark and not told exactly what went wrong. All they know is that as a result of unexpected complications, their child is not “normal.” Many parents have no idea what to do. If something has gone wrong during the delivery of your child or if you have experienced a birth injury yourself, you should contact a law firm as soon as possible.
Their anxiety only increases when parents realize that their child may require a lifetime of medical care. Children with brain injuries, Erb’s palsy, cerebral palsy, paraplegia and quadriplegia require a good deal of additional care that can take a large emotional and financial toll on a family.
Our law firm understands what parents are going through and will go above and beyond the law to ensure that you get the answers and results you deserve. Our law firm has successfully handled a variety of medical malpractice cases. Among them is one in which we recovered a structured settlement valued at over $20 million for a child born with brain damage and cerebral palsy when a physician botched her delivery. In that case, the parents were given an apology – but no explanation. After examining the medical records and consulting with our experts, our experienced team learned that the baby got stuck in the birth canal, compromising her umbilical cord and effectively blocking off her oxygen supply for approximately 13 minutes.
Only after the family came to our law firm did they finally get the answers they were seeking. We also helped them secure the compensation they deserved, providing the lifetime of medical care that their child’s condition warrants. Let us help get the answers to your problems and provide you and your child with the financial compensation your situation deserves. We are passionate about what we do and we are with you every step of the way. No matter how hard the defendants, their attorneys and insurance carriers fight to destroy your claim, our attorneys will stand by you all the way to the end.
Birth injuries can be prevented through prenatal care, monitoring and proper labor and delivery techniques and practices. While some brain injuries are temporary, the vast majority of brain-injured children endure permanent injuries so severe that they require long-term care and significant medical treatment for the rest of their lives.
