Negligence Caused Birth Injury?
Tampa Bay Medical Malpractice Attorneys with Three Decades of Experience
The sad fact about conditions like cerebral palsy, 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.
Medical malpractice lawyer Richard M. Shapiro dedicates his practice to helping families recover from injuries caused by health care professionals. He 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 questions and concerns that arise after the 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? How can I afford to modify my home or pay specialists to monitor my baby’s health? What if they need professional care for the rest of their lives?
A lawyer obviously cannot reverse what happened, but he or she can help build a solid foundation for your family’s future. Compensation from a lawsuit can address all of these concerns and make sure that you are starting the next phase of your life on the right foot.
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. We thoroughly investigate the details of every case, and we can find out exactly what went wrong.
