Fort Lauderdale Birth Injuries

Many birth injuries in Fort Lauderdale and Florida are preventable. In many cases, brain injuries in Fort Lauderdale and other serious injuries that affect infants can be prevented with proper monitoring of a child and mother before, during, and after delivery.

When medical staff are negligent in providing a high standard of care and an infant is injured as a result, parents have a right under Florida law to seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit in Fort Lauderdale or their community. To find out whether you might have a claim, arrange for a free, no obligation consultation with the attorneys at the Flaxman Law Group. The attorneys at the Flaxman Law Group have more than 60 years of experience successfully handling personal injury cases.

What Causes Preventable Birth Injuries in Fort Lauderdale and Across Florida?

In many cases, birth injuries in Fort Lauderdale and Florida are caused by:

  • Medical staff not listening to a mother's quest or concerns
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Incorrect use of forceps and other medical instruments
  • Lack of action on the part of medical staff or doctors in cases of emergency or complication
  • Incorrect decisions made by medical staff or physicians before or during birth
  • Mistakes on medical tests
  • Lab mistakes

No matter what has caused a birth injury, you deserve answers and justice. In many cases, you will want to speak with a personal injury attorney or child injury attorney in Fort Lauderdale or your community to explore all your legal options. Aggressively pursuing compensation now can help you provide for your child’s future. Waiting until later can mean missing out on opportunities. Florida’s statute of limitations means that there is only so much time to file a legal claim in most personal injury cases.
