Please call our well-versed medical malpractice attorneys right away for a free consultation.

Tips for a Successful Birth Injury Claim

It is a mistake to talk to the insurance company about your child’s injury without first speaking to a lawyer, as the insurance company is going to try to protect itself from being responsible for your damages. That means insurance adjustors are going to try to get you to say things during a recorded statement that devalue your claim. You have no legal obligation to give them a recorded statement.

Our Orlando attorneys understand that your trust of medical care professionals is going to be diminished after a birth injury, 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. You 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.

Defining Compensable Birth Injuries

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:

  • Fractures
  • 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 your child suffered a spinal cord injury due to the fault of a healthcare provider, the trial attorneys at Norden Leacox Accident & Injury Law will investigate your case, hire the appropriate experts to investigate it, and assist you in obtaining full compensation for the injuries your child sustained.
