Tampa Accident Attorney

Tampa Birth Injury Lawyer

While most people think giving birth is safe given today’s modern medical advances, the reality is that birth injuries to both the mother and the child are all too common. In fact, there are 28,000 birth injuries in America every year and most of these are preventable. Although most of these injuries can be recovered from relatively easily, not everyone is so lucky. If you or a loved one has been victimized by a birth injury, you may be entitled to compensation with the help of a top Tampa injury lawyer.

It is important to realize that not all birth injuries are the fault of the medical staff that delivered the child. If you failed to seek any form of prenatal care or otherwise endangered your unborn baby, the danger may be due to your actions. But if you did every thing right and had a baby born with an injury because the medical staff was negligent, you have the right to seek damages against the hospital and its staff. If you aren’t sure if negligence contributed to your child’s injury, please talk to a Tampa injury attorney who can help you uncover the true cause of the damage.

Our Accident Attorney Handles Cases Involving All Types of Birth Injury

There are all types of birth injuries and each one can be caused by a different problem in the medical treatment. Sometimes doctors will incorrectly use forceps during a delivery, sometimes they will administer a prescription that is not approved for pregnant women, and in other cases, the sonogram technician will fail to notice a potentially dangerous problem with the fetus. In any of these circumstances, the medical staff is responsible, whether the outcome was death, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, facial paralysis or any other injury type.

In some cases, the staff will even be responsible if the danger itself wasn’t preventable, but if they failed to immediately administer emergency treatments to help take care of the problem. Your Tampa injury lawyer can help you understand the full scope of medical malpractice when you schedule your free initial consultation.

If you have suffered through a birth injury, please contact our offices today to schedule an appointment with a top Tampa injury attorney.
