Tips for a Successful Claim
You do not want to talk to the insurance company about the injury. They are going to try to protect themselves from being responsible for your damages. That means they are going to try to get you to say things that devalue your claim. This is done during a recorded statement. Do not give them a recorded statement. You have no legal obligation to do so.
We understand that your trust of medical care professionals after a birth injury is going to be diminished, but those injuries still need to be tended to. If that means you go back to a different doctor, that’s what needs to happen. We don’t want the injuries to get worse. The sooner you get the treatment for the damaged parties, the better.
Some people feel like they should not bring a claim because it’s intimidating, or they are afraid of lawyer fees. Your justice is valuable, and you should seek it. We strongly encourage that you do. It would be a shame for you to not only miss out on your justice, but for the negligent parties to get away with what they’ve done.
Representing Birth Injury Victims
A baby’s birth should be a time of joy, happiness, and celebration. Unfortunately, sometimes the joy and happiness are destroyed by concerns over the long-term impact of injuries the baby suffered during the delivery process. Many medical conditions and disabilities can stem from birth and, in some instances, are even somewhat common. Some conditions, however, are the result of birth injuries versus naturally occurring disabilities. While minor bumps and bruises are common, permanent and serious injuries can occur from negligence during labor and delivery.
Common types of birth injuries include:
- Brain bleeding
- Spinal cord injuries
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy (brachial plexus palsy)
- Facial paralysis
- Perinatal asphyxia
Common issues that can lead to injuries such as brain damage during birth include:
- Umbilical Cord Complications
- Birth Canal Problems
- Excessive Pushing or Pulling
- Blocked Airways
- Placental Eruptions
- Abnormal Use of Tools
If you or a loved one have suffered a spinal cord injury due to the fault of someone else, the trial attorneys at Norden Leacox will investigate your case, hire the appropriate experts to investigate it, and assist you in obtaining full compensation for the injuries that you have sustained.
