Proving a birth injury case requires extensive research and resources. Our team will review the medical records and work with experts to determine what constitutes a professional standard of care. We will use this information to build a strong case to demonstrate how your doctor breached the standard of care, which led to your child’s injuries. If the healthcare provider has insurance, we will negotiate with their insurer to settle your claim. If they don’t want to pay, we will file a lawsuit with a court, where a judge and jury will decide the damages you should receive.
Insurers often try to reduce or even avoid paying a claim. We will stand by your side throughout the process and ensure that they are held accountable. Our lawyers will prepare for a trial, if necessary, and present evidence to support your claim that the healthcare professional was responsible for your child’s birth injury.
One of the most serious types of birth injuries is oxygen deprivation, known as hypoxic brain damage. This is often the result of an obstetrician or other medical professional failing to act in a critical moment. In many cases, this type of injury could have been prevented if the proper protocols were followed.
We will calculate the total cost of your child’s injuries, including immediate and future medical expenses, loss of income from not being able to work, and emotional suffering. We will also seek compensation for any loss of quality of life that you and your child experience as a result of their injuries.
