Eltringham Law Group in Boca Raton offers birth injury Attorney legal services to individuals in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Plantation, Boynton Beach and West Palm Beach. Birth injuries can impact a child’s and his or her family’s life forever. If you believe that your child has suffered a birth injury due to medical negligence, error or mistake, you may be entitled to compensation and should consider pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit.
The birth of a child is one of the most anticipated events in a family’s life, and if that event is marred by a birth injury that could have somehow been prevented, the result does not just have physical and emotional ramifications, but it could have long-lasting financial consequences as well. Babies impacted by birth injuries may require current and future medical care, therapy, medications, specialized schooling, long-term care and more, all of which can come with a hefty price tag.
Childbirth Injuries, Mistakes or Failures:
- Improper use of forceps or vacuum extractors
- Improper use of labor-inducing drugs
- Failure to identify and address hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain)
- Failure to diagnose conditions affecting the placenta
- Failure to identify birth defects
- Failure to diagnose diseases or medical conditions of the mother that may affect the fetus
- Lack of testing that can identify potential risks and problems
- Delay in performing C-sections if the child is in distress
- Communication failure between medical professionals
The injury lawyers at the Eltringham Law Group have nearly 60 years of combined experience representing individuals throughout the state of Florida who have been injured through no fault of their own. During that time, we have helped parents with children who have sustained childbirth injuries due to medical malpractice get the compensation they deserve.
If your child has been injured at birth, we can help. Medical malpractice, negligence and mistakes do not only extend to the physician delivering your baby, but may also cover actions taken or missed by the nursing staff, anesthesiologists, other medical personnel or the hospital itself. In order to have a valid birth injury legal claim, however, negligence must have directly resulted in the birth injury. This can be difficult to prove, but we have experience in building solid birth injury lawsuits when healthcare professionals do not provide a standard minimum level of care.
