Affected by a Birth Injury?
Our Orlando Injury Attorneys Represent Parents and Children
The rate of emergencies during birth has risen 75 percent over the last decade, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The agency also reported that both mothers and newborn children face a higher possibility of suffering from severe complications during the birth process. These complications are often caused by acts of medical malpractice.
Our Orlando injury lawyers represent families harmed by birth injuries. When negligent doctors or healthcare workers cause newborn children to suffer debilitating wounds that will affect the rest of their lives, we work diligently to gather evidence that is necessary to hold them responsible for their actions. The compensation gained through our work assists families in paying for medical bills, household expenses and the ongoing expenses of a child with special needs. We have recovered several million dollar verdicts and settlements for victims of medical negligence.
Causes of Birth Injuries
Birth injuries can be caused by medical malpractice on the part of the physician, nurse, or healthcare worker handling the birth process. Common effects of birth injuries include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Pulmonary hypertension
- Intellectual disabilities
- Holoprosencephaly (improper brain development)
- Shoulder dystocia
- Folic acid disorder
- Wrongful death of the mother or child
The effects of these birth injuries can be serious and lifelong. Children with physical or mental challenges may face serious learning disabilities, development problems and obstacles to proper growth. Treating these injuries often requires years of therapy, expensive surgeries, specialized medication and home modifications.
