Boca Raton Birth Injury Attorneys
We Can Fight for Your Family
At The Berman Law Group, we realize that birth injuries not only have physical and emotional consequences, but also place a financial strain on the child’s family. Our birth injury lawyers in Boca Raton have seen families struggle with the costs of providing physical therapy, special schooling, and other care needed for their children.
When a birth injury is caused by the negligence of a doctor or other healthcare provider, you may be able to recover compensation for these costs through a birth injury lawsuit. With decades of experience handling birth injury claims, our personal injury lawyers can determine whether your doctor took proper care during delivery, and the amount of damages that may be owed for your losses.
Contact us online or at (800) 883-5206 to schedule your free initial consultation with The Berman Law Group.
Types of Birth Injuries
A birth injury can affect the baby, the mother, or both. Regardless of who suffered the injury – mother or child – your family has the right to pursue justice in the form of compensation. Though a birth injury claim cannot undo the damage of a negligent doctor, nurse, or healthcare professional, it can help you obtain the financial compensation you need to move on and ensure a healthy life for your loved ones.
Examples of birth injuries include:
- Umbilical cord injuries
- Forceps injuries and vacuum pump injuries
- Failure to perform a Cesarean section (C-section)
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Facial paralysis
Examples of Doctor Negligence
Today, there are numerous drugs, tools, and other advancements that can improve the birthing process, reduce the likelihood of complications, and solve any problems that arise during labor. Unfortunately, some doctors may act negligently and fail to uphold the standard of care that is expected while delivering a child or assisting with a birth.
The healthcare provider may have acted negligently if they:
- Over-prescribed medication
- Failed to warn you of dangerous drugs or prescribed you drugs that impacted your pregnancy
- Failed to act or delayed action when you experienced complications during labor
- Made a mistake that resulted in the death of your loved one
- Failed to perform a C-section when it was necessary
- Performed a C-section when it was unnecessary
- Misused forceps or a vacuum pump during labor
Damages in a Birth Injury Case
After you or your child suffered a birth injury, you will likely be facing substantial medical expenses on top of the emotional suffering you are already experiencing. A birth injury lawsuit can help you obtain the compensation you need to carry on after this tragedy.
You may be entitled to compensation for:
- Birthing medical bills
- Medical expenses for the infant’s or mother’s injuries
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Rehabilitation expenses
