Premature Delivery Attorney
Nationwide Representation in Medical Malpractice Claims
Medical malpractice and negligence may be linked to injuries that pre-term babies sustain, usually due to their premature delivery or negligent care they receive after birth. At the Law Offices of Dr. Bruce G. Fagel & Associates, our lawyers are highly experienced with birth injury lawsuits. Serious
developmental delays and problems with the lungs and heart may occur due to premature delivery. Filing a medical malpractice or negligence lawsuit and recovering financial compensation may be your only chance at securing the money you need to provide for the best medical care for your child.
A birth injury attorney at our firm can offer you a free initial consultation to discuss your particular case. Depending upon the circumstances, as well as what state the injury occurred in, you may be able to make a significant recovery if it is determined that medical malpractice was responsible for your child's birth injuries.
About Premature Delivery & Birth Injuries
When a baby is born prematurely, he or she will be at an increased risk of injury. The lungs finish developing between 32 and 34 weeks, and as such any delivery that occurs before 32 weeks presents an increased risk of underdeveloped lungs. This can lead to a lack of oxygen to the brain, causing conditions such as cerebral palsy to develop or mental retardation. Most often, a baby born before 34 weeks will require some time in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) to help the lungs develop and prevent injury from occurring.
If your child was born prematurely and is now suffering from health problems or developmental problems, it may be the result of medical malpractice or negligence. A lawyer at our firm can talk to you about your case and use their knowledge of both medical malpractice law and premature delivery to effectively evaluate your situation.
