Birth Injuries Lawyer

Every new parent worries about the health of their baby. Though pregnancy is a beautiful and exciting experience, there is always the potential that something can go wrong before, during, or after the delivery process. Birth injuries can lead to major health and psychological consequences for both the child and the family. 

In the case that the birth injury is caused by negligence on the part of a medical professional, you may be eligible to file a medical malpractice birth injury claim. Contact a qualified Miami birth injuries lawyer at The Law Offices of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco, P.A. to get the compensation you deserve.

Common Causes of Medical Malpractice Birth Injuries

Birth injuries can occur while pregnant or during labor. Birth injuries are especially common if the mother has existing medical issues. In other cases, birth injuries may be caused by medical negligence during the delivery process. Medical negligence pertaining to birth injuries includes improper drug administration, failure to give oxygen to the newborn, or a delayed C-section.

Common Birth Injuries

The lasting effects of birth injuries are traumatic for both the child and family. Birth injuries may have lifelong health consequences including physical injuries, irregular heartbeat, irregular behavior, brain damage, and more. 

Common birth injuries include:

  • Prematurity
  • Breech delivery
  • Prolonged labor
  • Wrongful death

What to Do If Your Child Has Experienced a Medical Malpractice Birth Injury

If your child has experienced birth injuries due to medical malpractice, the first step is to seek immediate medical care. Throughout the treatment and recovery process, make sure to keep as much documentation as possible. This includes documentation of treatment and cost. This documentation will most likely play a large role in your lawsuit. 

Next, it is important to get in touch with a qualified birth injury lawyer as soon as possible. Birth injury lawyers can help you file your claim and prove your case. 

In Florida, there is a two-year time limit to when you can file a claim, also known as a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations only furthers the importance of acting on your claim as quickly as possible. The sooner you file your claim, the more thorough the investigation will be. This swift action will have a positive impact on your case, allowing investigators and experts to more accurately validate your claim.
