Did Your Child Suffer A Birth Injury? My Firm Is Here To Fight For Your Family.
Although giving birth is a joyful event, it is also highly taxing on the body and can be dangerous for both the mother and the baby. Most of the time, OBGYNs and other medical specialists provide excellent care, and the birthing process goes smoothly. Unfortunately, however, that’s not always the case. When these doctors err due to negligence, it can result in serious injuries to a newborn baby and/or threaten the life and health of the mother.
If you know or suspect that your child’s birth injuries were due to medical malpractice, it’s critical to discuss your concerns with an experienced and caring attorney. In the Tampa area, look no further than George C. Kezemides, P.A. I bring more than two decades of legal experience to each case and client, and I have helped recover millions of dollars on behalf of injury victims and their families. I will work just as hard for your family.
Common Birth Injuries And Possible Causes
There are a wide number of injuries and conditions classified as birth injuries. Those impacting newborns include:
- Cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy and brachial plexus palsy
- Damage to the spinal cord, sometimes resulting in temporary or permanent paralysis
- Bone fractures
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brain damage caused by oxygen deprivation (hypoxia)
- Nerve damage
Did the hospital fail to respond to fetal distress? Did the doctor wait too long to order an emergency cesarian section? Were birth assistance tools like forceps and vacuum devices used too aggressively in the delivery of your child? Did nurses fail to properly monitor you and the baby around the time of birth?
To be clear, not all birth injuries are the result of negligence. Some are the result of unrelated complications and risk factors, and they can occur even when doctors do everything right. That being said, you deserve answers about why your child suffered a birth injury – especially if you suspect that the physician may have made a serious error.
How My Firm Can Help You
When something goes wrong, physicians and hospitals often withhold information from new parents due to fear of liability. Ironically, this makes patients even more likely to take legal action because they don’t know how else to get answers.
I want to help you find the answers you are seeking. If I am able to take your case, I will conduct a thorough and independent investigation into the details of your child’s birth injury, including how and why it happened and who was at fault. I will then advocate aggressively on your family’s behalf to hold the at-fault party accountable and seek compensation to cover the lifetime costs and expenses that you may be facing.
