Let an experienced lawyer make your birth injury lawsuit case strong
It is every parent's worst nightmare, one you hope never comes to be: your helpless baby injured through a medical practitioner’s negligence. Yet for more than 24,000 births each year, the ordeal is no dream from which one can wake up. Weitz & Luxenberg wants to help you file a lawsuit to claim fair compensation for your child's birth injury.
Our recent successes in birth and neo-natal care medical malpractice suits include $6 million for a little girl who suffered brain damage after her physician failed to diagnose and treat Group B Streptococcus. We also procured an $8 million settlement for a boy whose delivering doctor forewent the sensible option of a Caesarean birth.
Common birth injuries include:
Spinal cord damage
Too many cases of cerebral palsy caused by medical malpractice, in the form of a forceful delivery. If you are a parent of a child with Erb's or cerebral palsy, you may not know the cause of their medical condition. Tragically, an injury during birth can result in such a medical diagnosis. Our firm has heard the tragic stories of many families who were the victims of a doctor's error that resulted in a birth injury.
Additionally, hospitals have become breeding grounds for supergerms, and a child's immune system is exceptionally vulnerable to such viruses and bacteria.
