If you or someone you love has been affected by a birth injury which can happen at almost any point during labor and delivery, you may be entitled to recover money. These injuries are most often the result of medical negligence or error. A baby with a birth injury may recover fully and quickly, or may suffer life-long physical and/or mental limitations.
The most common birth injuries are cerebral palsy, oxygen deprivation, mental retardation, Erb’s Palsy, Klumpkes Palsy and Brachial Plexus injuries. The ability to file a legal claim for medical malpractice when birth injuries are of a permanent nature provides the possibility for both the newborn and the parents to recover monetary damages for:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future loss of earnings
- The cost of future care (i.e., aides, devices, counseling, physical therapy, tutoring)
- Conscious pain and suffering
- Loss of services
We work on a contingency basis, which means that you don’t pay a cent until you receive compensation, at which point you are charged a percentage of the settlement.
There is no fee for our services unless a recovery is won.
