Birth can be a relatively uncomplicated process. However, like many medical procedures, things can go wrong during birth.
One mistake can cause physical and emotional injuries to your newborn.
If your child was injured at or during birth, the birth injury attorneys at Baird Mandalas Brockstedt & Federico can help you seek recovery.
What Is a Birth Injury Lawyer?
A birth injury can be heartbreaking and burdensome. Unfortunately, even seasoned doctors and nurses can make mistakes.
When a doctor’s or other healthcare provider’s carelessness causes a birth injury, the child may be entitled to compensation through a birth injury lawsuit.
Birth trauma lawyers can help you:
- Investigate a case against the medical staff responsible for the delivery;
- Obtain medical records and expert witness reviews;
- File a complaint with the appropriate court; and
- Fight for financial compensation.
Many families struggle to afford medical treatment and other necessary care for their disabled children.
One study found that the average family spent 12.5% of their monthly income on costs related to their child’s disability.
The attorneys at Baird Mandalas Brockstedt & Federico have recovered millions of dollars to cover medical costs and other losses through birth injury lawsuits.
How Much Does a Birth Injury Lawyer Cost?
At Baird Mandalas Brockstedt & Federico, we understand the severe impact a birth injury can have on your family’s emotional and financial well-being.
That is why we will evaluate your case for free. During your free consultation, we will listen to your story and determine if there is a basis to sue for damages.
If we pursue your case, we typically do so on a contingency fee basis. That means we will only collect a legal fee and seek reimbursement for expenses if your lawsuit is successful.
When Should I Contact a Birth Injury Lawyer?
You should call a birth injury attorney if you suspect something has gone wrong during a birth. Common injuries include:
- Brain damage
- Cerebral palsy
- Spinal cord injuries
- Erb’s palsy or damage to the brachial plexus
- Fetal death
Each state’s statute of limitations sets a specific deadline for filing a lawsuit.
If you miss the deadline, you will likely not be able to file a suit and/or get compensation.
A birth injury attorney can help you determine the applicable statute of limitations and, if possible, file a claim before the statute of limitations expires.
