Orlando Birth Injury Lawyer
A child’s birth should be a time of great joy and celebration. However, when a birth injury occurs due to medical malpractice, elation turns to devastation as parents and family members are suddenly faced with a child’s uncertain future.
During this emotionally and financially difficult time, an experienced Orlando birth injury attorney at NeJame, LaFay, Jancha, Ahmed, Barker, Joshi and Moreno, P.A., can help provide legal assistance and advice to families affected by birth injuries such as cerebral palsy, shoulder dystocia, and Erb ’s palsy.
Often times when birth injuries occur, people feel there is no explanation as to what has happened, and simply assume there is no valid cause. However, statistics suggest that nearly one half of birth injuries are potentially avoidable with recognition and anticipation of obstetric risk factors. These factors can include:
- failure to perform a timely C-Section
- failure to recognize that the baby is in distress
- depriving the baby of oxygen during delivery
- using excessive force during delivery
- failure to correctly estimate the weight or size of a child before delivery
The birth process is a blend of compression, contractions, torques, and traction. When fetal size, presentation, or neurologic immaturity complicates this event, such birthing forces may lead to tissue damage, edema, hemorrhage, or fracture to the child. The use of obstetric instrumentation may further amplify the effects of such forces or may cause injury alone.
Children who suffer from birth injuries, such as brain damage, Cerebral and Erb's Palsy, usually require extensive therapy and medical attention throughout the course of their lives. These medical bills can become overwhelming and could potentially warrant a lawsuit, which can be an effective punishment against negligent or inattentive medical treatment.
