Pompano Beach Birth Injuries
In the past century, infant and maternal death rates have dramatically declined thanks to medical science. However, medical professionals sometimes do harm unborn children and their mothers through misdiagnosis, mistakes, negligence, and recklessness. When a previously healthy baby is born with severe or permanent injuries due to negligence or recklessness, the results can be devastating. In these situations, parents may have a medical malpractice claim in Pompano Beach or their community and pursuing this claim can hold negligent medical staff accountable while seeking compensation for a child’s injuries.
If you think you may have a claim, contact the Flaxman Law Group to set up a free consultation to review your situation. The Flaxman Law Group legal team has recovered in excess of $100 million on behalf of families and personal injury plaintiffs in Pompano Beach and South Florida.Preventable Errors Lead to Birth Injury and Child Injury in Pompano Beach and Florida
In many cases, birth injuries in Pompano Beach and Florida are the result of preventable errors, such as failure to respond to complications or problems promptly or in the correct manner. In many cases, complications during a birth require medical staff to respond quickly. Even a few minutes of oxygen deprivation can cause permanent injury to a baby's brain, for example, so it becomes a vital for medical staff to carefully monitor both the baby and mother during the birth process. If medical devices such as forceps are needed, it is important that these are used carefully in the correct manner to prevent nerve damage or fractures.
When medical staff are not careful and birth injuries occur, unfortunately these birth injuries can become permanent. In cases of oxygen deprivation especially, babies may grow up with developmental delays, poor motor control, vision and hearing problems, and permanent injury. These children may grow up with few prospects in terms of careers or may need full-time assistance with basic tasks such as eating or getting dressed. These children often grow up needing a variety of complex surgeries, tests, rehabilitation, and medical treatment. In addition to the pain and suffering of seeing a child injured in this way, parents often have to face the financial reality of caring for a child who requires these additional forms of help.What Can I Do if My Child Has Been Injured?
