Boca Raton Birth Injury Attorneys

A Doctor Could Be At Fault for Your Child’s Injury

Your child deserves a promising start, and a birth injury as a result of a doctor’s negligence is unfair to both you and your newborn. The party responsible for the injury should take accountability and ensure that your family has the resources to pay for any of your child’s medical expenses that resulted from their mistake.

Our Boca Raton birth injury lawyers can help you learn more about a medical professional’s liability and what your family may be owed to compensate for their negligence. This is, undoubtedly, a difficult time for your family. As a client, you can trust our team to fully dedicate themselves to your case and aggressively fight for everything you deserve.

You should not have to worry about attorney fees while fighting to ensure your child has all the resources it needs to live a happy, healthy life. Call (561) 221-6802 for attorneys that work on contingency fees.

Was My Baby’s Injury Avoidable?

Without a medical background, it can be difficult to determine whether or not your child’s birth injury could have been avoided. It is unlikely that a medical professional will take responsibility for the injury. Most doctors will often claim that everything done during the birth was necessary for ensuring the safety of the mother and child, but this is not always the case.

At Somera & Silva, LLP, Paul Silva, co-founding attorney, is a licensed medical doctor with tremendous experience litigating birth injury cases. We can help you run through everything that happened during the birth and identify any areas where the staff could have acted differently and spared your family from this trauma.

A medical professional may be held accountable for a birth injury if they:

  • Overprescribed medication or failed to warn you of dangerous drugs that can affect pregnancy.
  • Delayed to act when the mother experienced complications while during labor.
  • Committed an error that resulted in the death of either the mother or the child.
  • Failed to perform a cesarean section (C-section) when necessary, or performed an unnecessary C-section against the mother’s wishes.
  • Did not advise an expectant mother to visit a medical professional every few months to check on her progress or the development of the fetus.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of errors that a medical professional could be making during a birth. If you believe an injury to your child or the mother could have been prevented, reach out to our Boca Raton birth injury attorneys today for knowledgeable assistance.

We offer free consultations so you can discuss whether or not a medical professional was responsible for your child’s injury without making any commitments or paying legal fees. Call (561) 221-6802 today.
