Birth Injuries – Boca Raton Attorney

Injury Attorneys Serving Boca Raton, Ft. Lauderdale, Boynton Beach, Palm Beach County & Nearby Areas of Florida.

When heading to the hospital to deliver your child, the only thing that should be on your mind is the joyous occasion that will follow as soon as your little one is delivered. The greatest fear is that something may go wrong during the birth because labor and delivery is a highly complicated and involved medical procedure during which mistakes can happen. If these mistakes are the result of medical malpractice, then you may find yourself in the position to file a birth injury lawsuit.

If something has occurred during your child’s birth that you believe happened because of a mistake on a medical worker’s part, please contact our Boca Raton birth injury attorney at ECanter Lawyers by calling 561-447-4500.

Causes of Birth Injuries

At ECanter Lawyers, our attorney, Eric G. Canter, has had nearly two decades worth of experience in birth injury lawsuits. During a birth, medical workers have to make split-second decisions that could affect the life of your infant permanently. If these decisions are made incorrectly, then your child may suffer. During a birth, the following can be considered medical malpractice that caused a birth injury:

  • Not properly monitoring the infant during labor and delivery
  • Not noticing the infant is in the wrong position for a safe delivery
  • Not discovering that the placenta has separated from the uterus too early
  • Not committing to a Caesarian-section quick enough
  • Not noticing a change in the child’s oxygenation level

If any of these happened to your child, they may suffer permanent disabilities including cerebral palsy, shoulder dystocia, fractures, bleeding, blindness, and many other horrible maladies.

Birth Injury Financial Damages

In the case of a birth injury, medical malpractice can be hard to prove. Mr. Canter had experience with a case where an infant had to be rushed to the neo-natal ICU (NICU) after birth and needed to be kept still, so the infant was taped down. There was nothing wrong with taping the child down; however, some of the tape was inadvertently placed on the infant’s eyelid which caused permanent damage. Mr. Canter helped his client successfully resolve the lawsuit by utilizing pictures the client had taken of their child while in the NICU. Using this as an example, Mr. Canter suggests that every parent pay close attention to what is happening to their child during and right after birth.

Once it is apparent that a birth injury was the result of medical malpractice, Mr. Canter will help you file a lawsuit for financial restitution. As many birth injuries cause lifelong damage, the lawsuit will include damages that will cover care and rehabilitation for your child for life.
