Does your baby have cerebral palsy or another injury caused by birth trauma?

Birth injury cases usually involve catastrophic injuries to babies caused by problems during labor or delivery. Inadequate oxygen to the baby may result in hypoxic brain injury and the development of cerebral palsy (CP). Excessive traction during delivery may result in nerve injuries, affecting the child’s arm and causing permanent disability (Erb’s Palsy or Brachial Plexus injury). Labor and delivery is a critical time, and improper diagnosis and management may have disastrous consequences. Since these injuries are so devastating, millions of dollars may be at stake because the damages can cover a lifetime of future medical, rehabilitation and attendant care expense for a severely handicapped child. These cases are among the most expensive, time consuming and complex cases to be litigated. They are aggressively defended, difficult to settle and difficult to win. If your child has a birth injury, call us for a confidential appointment to see how we can help your family.

We do not charge an attorney fee for personally consulting with you about your child’s birth injury case. Many people do not have the money to hire a personal injury lawyer to protect their rights. You probably didn’t have this unexpected injury figured into your budget. Now you have high medical bills, probably lost wages, and many other financial worries caused by this situation. It is unfair for these obstacles to prevent you from obtaining the full amount you are due under the law in just compensation for these injuries.

Contingency Fee

Don’t just take the first offer of settlement from the insurance company if it doesn’t fully compensate you for your loss and protect you from future complications. Protecting your rights is important to us. That’s the reason we cover all expenses until the end of a case and then we are paid a portion of the funds recovered. If we are unable to recover compensation for you, you do not owe us a fee.  This is called a “contingency fee” arrangement and is common among Florida personal injury attorneys.

Attorneys put up large sums of money on these complex cases in order to hire experts, take depositions, gather evidence and oppose the lawyers of large insurance firms.  The attorney you choose must be able to cover the expenses for such battles.
