Philadelphia Birth Injury Lawyers
When the Negligence of Medical Professionals Compromises Your Child’s Future
There is probably no greater joy a couple can experience than bringing a new life into the world. In the same way, there may be no greater horror than to learn that a child has suffered a life-changing injury due to the negligence of the delivery room doctors or staff. If your newborn child suffered any type of injury during birth, you may have a claim for damages against the negligent staff members, the hospital and others.
Helping You Through a Difficult Time
Birth injuries may be among the most tragic and pointless injuries that we handle because nearly all of them could be avoided if the doctors and their staff members would simply pay closer attention and do their jobs properly. When they don’t, they can and should be held accountable for the harm they cause. These can be extremely difficult cases to prove, and our attorneys will be there to fight for your child at every step.
Our Philadelphia personal injury lawyers have extensive experience with doctor error and birth injury cases, and we are committed to securing the compensation your child will need. We work with life planning experts, medical specialists and others in order to gain a complete understanding of the care your child will require in the short and long term. We aggressively seek the right compensation appropriate to your child’s needs.
We have successfully handled cases involving the most severe child birth injuries, including:
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Failure to monitor fetal vital signs
- Hypoxia and related complications
- Shoulder dystocia
- Uterine rupture and other injuries to the mother
