No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing


Speak with a Pensacola Birth Injury Lawyer about Filing a Claim for Medical Malpractice

Learning that your child has suffered a birth injury due to medical malpractice can be devastating. Even if your child may eventually be able to recover, knowing that your child will suffer unnecessarily is something that no parent should ever be forced to endure. Despite their tragic consequences, birth injuries resulting from mistakes during pregnancy, labor and delivery are frighteningly common – and a Pensacola birth injury lawyer knows the statistics all too well.

What are your family’s legal rights if your child has been diagnosed with a birth injury? In Florida, if your child’s injury is the result of your doctor’s failure to uphold his or her professional duty of care, you are entitled to financial compensation for medical malpractice. The same is true if your child’s injury is a result of the negligence of a physician assistant, midwife, nurse, administrative staff member or any other employee of your healthcare provider. Health care providers buy insurance to cover medical malpractice claims; and, if your child’s injury is the result of malpractice, your family deserves to be fully and fairly compensated for the immediate and long-term effects of your provider’s mistake.

Common Warning Signs and Examples of Medical Malpractice During Pregnancy, Labor and Delivery

In order to prove a claim for medical malpractice, it is necessary to show that the care you or your child received fell below generally-accepted medical standards. This can mean different things under different circumstances; but, regardless of how or when your child was injured, if you have any reason to suspect that a mistake may be to blame, we strongly encourage you to speak with one of our attorneys. In fact, even if you don’t know whether to suspect malpractice, we encourage you to get in touch. Our attorneys can thoroughly assess the facts of your case to determine if your family may be entitled to financial compensation for malpractice such as:

  • Inadequate prenatal care
  • Untreated gestational diabetes
  • Untreated preeclampsia
  • Uterine prolapse
  • Nerve damage
  • Failure to recommend a C-section
  • Failure to recognize fetal distress
  • Pulling on an infant’s shoulders
