Birth injury claims are meant to help with future medical costs

A baby coming into the world is a beautiful experience most parents excitedly anticipate. When that beauty is clouded by medical errors that lead to the baby being harmed, the parents might wonder if there is anything they can do. Medical malpractice claims based on birth injuries are one of the possible courses of action you might have if you find yourself in that situation.

There are several different types of birth injuries that can occur. Some injuries, such as bruising from forceps, aren't long-lasting and usually don't require additional medical care. Other injuries, such as brachial palsy, can last longer. Conditions like cerebral palsy can lead to life-long medical issues that require ongoing care.

We know that you are probably busy caring for your newborn and need to focus on your baby's needs. If you think that he or she suffered a preventable birth injury that was the result of a medical professional's error, we can help you to learn about the options that you have for seeking compensation.

Compensation might improve your financial situation some so that you can afford the medical care and other assistance that your child needs, both now and in the future. When you think about the mounting costs that come with a special needs child, you can imagine how valuable compensation can be.

Florida laws sets specific time limits on how long after the injury you are allowed to seek compensation. This time limit can be as short as two years. That doesn't leave you much time to think about your course of action, so you should take action as quickly as possible after the birth injury occurs.
