Did Medical Negligence Cause Your Child’s Birth Injury?

Let Tampa Bay Medical Malpractice Attorneys with Three Decades of Experience Evaluate Your Child

The sad fact about conditions like cerebral palsy (including spastic quadriparesis), encephalopathy, hypoxia, anoxia and retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is that they likely could have been prevented by competent medical care. Mistakes made leading up to and inside the delivery room can cause permanent injuries that affect entire families for the rest of their lives.

As a result, medical malpractice lawyer Richard M. Shapiro dedicates his practice to helping families recover from injuries caused by health care professionals. Any injury caused by medical negligence is devastating, but those involving children are even more heartbreaking. A child’s whole life can be changed by one act of carelessness. This is why Richard focuses most of his time and resources on helping children who suffer from these devastating mistakes.

How Can a Birth Injury Attorney Help My Child?

Parents of children with birth injuries often feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of concerns that arise after birth. How can I pay for hospital visits, medical treatments and medication? How can I support my family when I need to take off work to care for my child? What if they need professional care for the rest of their lives? How can I afford to modify my home or pay specialists to monitor my baby’s health? What do I do next?

These questions can seem overwhelming. However, compensation from a lawsuit can help alleviate your financial burdens and ensure your child gets the care he or she needs. Then, without the worry of how you will afford to help your son or daughter, you can spend time with your family and make plans for the future.

Keep in mind that these injuries did not happen by chance. Negligence played a part, either intentionally to save time or money, by mistake or because someone overlooked an important detail. As a result, we thoroughly investigate the details of every case, and we can find out exactly what went wrong.
