Birth Injury Attorneys Handling Cerebral Palsy and Other Malpractice-Related Injuries to Children
During pregnancy, most parents entertain thoughts about what their child might grow up to be: a scientist, a musician, an athlete — maybe even a president. A childbirth injury can destroy those hopes and dreams, and rob a child of a future filled with possibilities. If your child was injured during birth, we may be able to help.
The attorneys at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder, PC, represent families whose children were seriously injured by medical negligence during pregnancy, labor, delivery or after birth. When the negligence of a doctor, nurse, hospital or other health care professional causes harm to a newborn, we pursue financial compensation for damages. Contact us today for more information.
We have won significant financial compensation for clients whose children suffered a wide range of childbirth injuries, including:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb's palsy
- Klumpke's palsy
- Hypoxia or HIE — lack of oxygen to the brain
- Stroke, hematoma and other brain injuries
- Fetal distress
- Anesthesia-related injuries
- Injuries from fires in the delivery room or nursery
- Bone fractures
- Forceps injuries
- Hospital-acquired infections
Fair Compensation for Childbirth Injuries
While no amount of money can truly compensate for the damages caused by a childbirth injury, a fair verdict or settlement can help a family afford the special care and services their child may need. We work with certified life-care planners to project the lifetime costs caused by the childbirth injury. Medical and rehabilitation expenses, adaptive devices and equipment, and modifications to make a home handicapped-accessible are among the many expenses we assess.
