Helping Families After Birth Injuries
A birth injury or death caused by negligent medical doctors and nurses is devastating. If your infant was disabled or fatally injured during childbirth, you need to ensure that you are able to pursue a successful legal claim against every doctor, hospital or medical professional responsible for that injury or death.
At The Lawrence Firm, PSC, we are experienced in helping birth injury victims and their families recover the compensation they deserve for medical negligence. Birth injuries alter the lives of victims and their families. Our firm will help you assert your rights against the negligent medical and nursing professionals who caused those injuries. We are experienced with all of the following:
- Cerebral palsy
- Vacuum extraction injuries
- Forceps injuries
- Failure to do a cesarean section
- Cervical ripening drugs
- Uterine rupture
- Placental abruption
- Shoulder dystocia
- Erb’s palsy
- Hypoxic or ischemic brain injuries (HIE)
- Wrongful death
- Nurse/midwife errors
- Negligent fetal monitoring
- Perinatal stroke
- Mismanaged labor or delivery
Children who suffer birth injuries may never recover. Even those without obvious physical injuries may be left with seizures, behavioral problems, speech and language impairments, learning disabilities, developmental delays, cognitive impairments or intellectual deficiencies.
Many children will never be able to walk, talk or eat and even the ones who can do those things, may require the long-term care of their parents and other professionals to protect them from their own impulsiveness, and from the manipulation of others.
Our Attorneys Are Dedicated To Achieving Justice
At The Lawrence Firm, PSC, we understand the needs of these children and their families and work to recover the compensation they deserve. We are dedicated to helping families who have children with cerebral palsy and other brain injuries improve the quality of their lives and quality of life for the family unit as a whole. We are devoted to getting families compensation to ease the burden of caring for children with injuries that are caused by the negligence of others.
Our attorneys understand the devastation and hopelessness felt by families with brain-injured children. When we pursue a birth injury claim, we are not only seeking to recover compensation for the brain-injured infant, but we are seeking to recover compensation and medical care for the brain-injured 70-year-old that the infant someday will become.
Our attorneys will assist you in asserting your legal rights and holding those negligent parties responsible for the injuries suffered by your child. We will assess the immediate and long-term needs of your child throughout your child’s lifetime, including medical and long-term care needs, attendant and respite care, pain and suffering, and loss of life enjoyment.
