If you have just welcomed a new baby into your life, you are likely filled with a swirl of many emotions, not to mention exhaustion. With that said, if your precious new baby was injured before or during birth due to the careless or even intentional errors of doctors, nurses, midwives or other healthcare providers, you are probably feeling a complex mix of anger, sadness and joy.
Any medical actions that cause injury to a baby or fetus are defined as a “tort” – a civil wrong – and this tort can provide the basis of birth injury lawsuit. If this tragic set of circumstances has happened to you, you are entitled to begin the process of a birth injury lawsuit.
Our skilled and experienced team of birth injury lawyers can help you navigate through the oft-complex legal system and help you to receive compensation. While no monetary sum can ever make up for the pain and suffering your family has experienced, this compensation can help to pay for future and past medical expenses, loss of earnings (including future earnings) and disability and disfigurement. We can help you to determine the best course of action based on the type and severity of the injury your child has suffered.
The team at Baizer Kolar P.C. has had many success stories representing the parents and families of children harmed in the birthing process. Here are just a few of the cases in which we have helped people like you receive compensation for the injuries caused to their child.
- Cerebral Palsy – In December of 2013, our skilled team of birth injury lawyers won a $29.8 million dollar verdict for the parents of a child whose delivery was delayed by medical staff, resulting in cerebral palsy.
- Surgical Error – A doctor made a tragic medical error that caused the infant victim to suffer from permanent brain damage. We were able to secure a $19.4 million settlement for the future of the family.
- Failure to perform a timely cesarean section – Our medical malpractice lawyers were able to win an $18.6 million verdict for the family of a newborn who developed cerebral palsy when his doctor failed to perform a necessary cesarean section despite many signs showing that the infant was in distress during the delivery process.
