When a physician, nurse, midwife, anesthesiologist, obstetrician or hospital fails to provide appropriate care during the labor and delivery, prenatal or postnatal period, with resulting catastrophic birth injury, mothers and fathers are immediately placed in a position they never dreamed of: How can I assure that my child will receive the medical attention necessary to help him or her reach full potential?
At Caress Law Group, we have extensive experience in handling birth injury cases. We get to know the child and the child’s family so that we can passionately and accurately tell your story. Our legal team works with a network of the very best and highly qualified medical and life-planning experts from all over the country to determine the cause, extent, and prognosis of a birth injury. We will work tirelessly for a fair and right resolution for your situation.
It can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, sometimes millions of dollars, to deal with the effects of a birth injury. A failure to diagnose a condition, the wrong response in a medical situation, or a brief lack of attention can result in devastating injuries that last a lifetime.
Birth Injuries can vary in severity from relatively minor to catastrophic, including death. Common birth injuries include bruising, broken bones, lack of oxygen, brain injury, as well as cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy.
If your child sustained a birth injury, we would be happy to assist you in any way that we can, but you have to take the first step and reach out to us. You may be concerned about whether you have a case or not, or you may feel a bit overwhelmed by all that may be involved with a claim, or you may be uncomfortable with contacting a lawyer at all. We completely understand. Please know that we would welcome the opportunity to discuss your situation, no matter how big or small it may be, and no matter whether it turns out to be a case that we can help with or not. If we don’t think that you have a case where we can help, we will tell you that and we will explain to you why. On the otherhand, if we do think that you have a case, or that you may have a case, we will tell you that as well, and we will also discuss with you how we may be able to help you. Whatever your situation, please do not hesitate to contact us and know that we view it as an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to help you in any way that we can.
