Birth Injuries Attorney
Nationwide Representation in Medical Malpractice Claims
Medical malpractice and negligence claims involving birth injuries are often the most heart-wrenching cases that our attorneys handle. There are two main types of injuries that can occur during the birth/delivery process; injuries from trauma, and injuries from lack of oxygen to the brain. A lack of oxygen, known as hypoxia or asphyxia, can cause life-long disabilities and requires extensive medical treatment. In many instances of asphyxia/hypoxia, the victim is unfortunately never able to live a normal life.
The following are some of the types of claims that birth injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Dr. Bruce G. Fagel & Associates pursue:
About Birth Injuries
A birth injury may be caused by any number of negligent actions on the part of a doctor, nurse, obstetrician or other medical professional involved in the delivery of a child. Failing to perform a C-section in a timely fashion, failing to diagnose a serious illness in the mother or baby, improper use of forceps or vacuum in an assisted delivery, or many other types of mistakes may lead to a serious birth injury. While some injuries are treatable and will go away with immediate medical care, some injuries such as cerebral palsy will last for life.
Your child may require extensive medical care for many years, or even a lifetime. By taking legal action with the help of a skilled birth injury lawyer, you can seek financial compensation for all of your child’s existing and future medical expenses. In addition, you can ensure that the doctor or hospital is held responsible for their actions and help prevent it from happening to others. More importantly, we can help you receive the financial means to provide your child with the best possible care.
