Philadelphia Birth Injury Attorneys
Serving Clients throughout Maryland, DC, Pennsylvania and Georgia
Birth injuries are among the most common types of medical malpractice. Any injury at the hands of a doctor is a tragedy. When injuries happen at the very start of life, however, they are shocking and emotionally devastating for parents and other family members.
As lawyers, doctors, and medical professionals, we are committed to helping parents obtain the maximum compensation available for their child. We know that money can’t ever make up for what you have endured, but it can ease financial burdens that keep you up at night and prevent you from enjoying time with your family. No matter what you’re facing, we are on your side.
Birth Injury Cases We Handle
Medical malpractice cases are not easy. Birth injury cases are even more challenging. Our team of attorney-physicians and experienced trial lawyers take on the cases other firms turn down. We tackle the cases deemed too difficult or too complicated, and we get results.
Birth injury cases present numerous challenges. Because labor and delivery is so unpredictable, it can be difficult to prove that a doctor failed to adhere to the appropriate standard of care. In many cases, obstetricians and medical professionals who work with expectant mothers must make rapid-fire decisions under intense pressure. Few doctors deliberately set out to harm a patient or a baby. As a result, proving negligence can be a daunting prospect.
At the same time, doctors are human beings. Most physicians are incredibly talented, highly-educated, and hard-working, but they are still just people. Like anyone else, they are prone to making mistakes. In a medical setting, and especially in a maternity unit, mistakes can cost lives. Mistakes can result in a child living with a disability for the rest of his or her life. These are tough cases, and they are incredibly important cases. The legal team at LawMD is exceptionally qualified to handle them.
Our track record of success spans decades. We have helped thousands of families get the compensation they need to support their child and give their baby a rewarding, meaningful life. Some of our most notable cases have involved:
- Mistakes during c-section
- Erb’s palsy
- Cerebral palsy
- Failure to monitor
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy
- Improper use of vacuum extraction
- Improper use of forceps
Furthermore, mothers can also suffer serious and life-threatening injuries during labor and childbirth. We have represented mothers who have suffered hospital-acquired infections in c-section incisions – a complication that can result in organ failure and amputation. We have also helped new moms who have experienced mismanaged post-partum hemorrhage, resulting in hysterectomy and the loss of fertility.
When a Birth Results in a Wrongful Death
The birth of a child is supposed to be one the happiest moments in a person’s life. In the most catastrophic and heartbreaking cases, childbirth ends in death. If your baby was stillborn, or you lost your wife or partner during childbirth, you are entitled to compassion and answers.
As physician-attorneys, we are committed to getting you the answers you deserve. No one should ever have to bury a child. No one should ever walk into a hospital expecting to welcome a new baby and end up leaving with a spouse’s death certificate. Some childbirth complications are unavoidable, but these are incredibly rare. If you have lost a loved one during childbirth, we will support you at every stage of your case.
The Support and Guidance You Need
When a child is injured at birth, the damages can total in the millions. Compensating someone for a lifetime of disability and loss of opportunities and earnings is a massive undertaking. It’s incredibly important to get it right, as your birth injury case is your only chance to get the money you need to give your child the best possible support and care throughout his or her lifetime. Because many of our lawyers are also doctors, we know what it costs to manage a difficult birth injury case. We use this knowledge and experience to help our clients get the compensation they deserve.
