Was Your Child’s Injury Due To A Doctor’s Fault?

Though some things can go wrong when a baby is born, injuries may be caused by a medical professional’s negligence or error. At Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. our lawyers advise parents in legal claims to seek maximum compensation for any harms caused by another’s fault.

We help parents whose babies suffered birth injuries such as:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Brachial plexus injury

Mistakes In Prenatal Care May Lead To Injury Claims

Although some birth injuries are the result of negligence during the labor and delivery process, others may be the consequence of negligent prenatal care such as failing to order the appropriate tests. A failure to monitor the progress of labor or intervene in a timely way when a baby is in distress during delivery can lead to serious injury or death. Whatever the cause, our attorneys are able to develop strong cases that may give parents the resources they need to care for an injured or disabled child.

Protecting Your Child’s Future

If a baby is severely disabled as a result of a birth injury, parents will need considerable resources to care for that child. In some instances, the child will require care and treatment throughout his or her lifetime.

When we obtain a jury verdict or settlement, our lawyers are able to obtain a monetary fund that can support the care the child will need, even after his or her parents are gone. It gives parents great peace of mind to know their disabled child will have the resources he or she needs.

Moreover, full, fair and adequate damages in cases like these include proper compensation for a lifetime of pain and suffering, and a proper settlement or verdict can make a big difference in the quality of life and opportunities for such a child.
