Helping Families After Birth Injuries
All injury claims and medical malpractice cases are difficult, but there is something particularly tragic about injuries to infants. For most parents, an injury to a child caused by medical negligence is literally the worst-case scenario. It is important at a time like this to work with a legal team who will handle your legal matters well and help you obtain compensation and justice for what you have had to suffer as a family.
At Collier & Associates Law Offices, we take our clients’ cases personally. A birth injury claim is not just another case to us. It is an opportunity to help a family recover from a serious tragedy. We bring a combination of experience, success and compassion to all of our clients’ cases. Our attorneys represent clients in Plantation and the surrounding areas of Florida.
Common Instances Of Medical Negligence During Birth
Our lawyers handle cases involving:
- Birth defects resulting from failure to diagnose illnesses while in the womb
- Erb’s palsy, which is a condition marked by paralysis of an arm, usually caused by errors in the birthing process
- Brain injuries caused by cerebral hemorrhaging or poor delivery techniques
- Paralysis and brain damage caused by lack of oxygen or blood to the brain during birth
- Bone fractures caused by rough handling during birth, usually as a result of the use of forceps or vacuum technology
- Wrongful death
This is just a sampling of the types of birth injury claims we handle. If your child has suffered an injury or illness in the birthing process, our lawyers will look at your case and help you determine the best course of action.
How Do You Know If You Experienced Medical Negligence?
Most parents, without medical expertise, don’t know whether the injuries their children suffer are a result of medical malpractice or negligence. However, most parents have good instincts to sense that something is wrong. If you have any questions or if something didn’t feel right, you should trust those instincts and at least talk with an attorney.
Further, there is no cost or financial risk for talking with our lawyers. We offer free consultations, and we handle all of our injury claims on contingency, which means that our fees come out of a percentage of what we win for you. So, if we don’t win, you will not be charged any attorney fees.
