No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing


Our Tallahassee Birth Injury Attorneys are Committed to Helping Families Recover Just Compensation. 

With today’s medical knowledge and technology, most birth injuries are avoidable. From providing treatment during pregnancy to monitoring the mother and fetus during labor and making proper use of extraction tools during delivery, there are ways to prevent injuries that have the potential to impact children for the rest of their lives. Sadly, mistakes remain common, and our Tallahassee birth injury attorneys routinely represent new parents in birth injury claims against medical facilities throughout Florida and Georgia.

If your child has been diagnosed with a birth injury, it is important that you speak with an attorney. The financial costs of treating birth injuries can be substantial, and the non-financial effects can take an enormous toll on both parents and children. If you will be forced to stay home to care for your child, or if your child’s opportunities will be limited as he or she ages, the financial consequences can become even more severe. At Searcy Denney, our medical malpractice attorneys rely on decades of experience to help families who are struggling to cope with the effects of birth injuries; and, if your health care provider is to blame for your child’s condition, we can make sure you receive the compensation to which your family is legally entitled.

Claims Our Tallahassee Birth Injury Attorneys Handle 

Medical errors can cause a multitude of different types of birth injuries. At Searcy Denney, our Tallahassee birth injury attorneys represent families in cases involving injuries including:

  •       Anoxia

  •       Brain injuries

  •       Erb’s palsy
  •       Hypoxia
  •       Infections
  •       Shoulder dystocia
  •       Spasticity
  •       Spinal cord trauma

Common Medical Errors Resulting in Birth Injuries

These and other injuries can result from errors during all phases of pre-pregnancy planning, pregnancy, labor and delivery. When you engage our attorneys to represent you, your birth injury lawyer will work closely with our trusted medical experts to identify the specific cause of your child’s condition. Some of the most-common medical errors resulting in birth injuries include:

  •       Errors during c-section deliveries
  •       Failure to diagnose conditions and health risks during pregnancy
  •       Failure to limit blood loss during delivery
  •       Failure to maintain an adequate supply of oxygen
  •       Failure to monitor the mother or fetus
  •       Failure to perform a timely c-section
  •       Improper use of forceps and other extraction tools
  •       Medication errors[JF1] 
  •       Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) malpractice
  •       Premature or delayed inducement of delivery

When most families contact us, they don’t know what went wrong. That is what we expect. Birth injury cases are highly complex; and, unfortunately, many medical providers will try to obscure the truth rather than helping families recover. Our Tallahassee birth injury attorneys can determine if your family is entitled to financial compensation, and we encourage you to contact us promptly to discuss your case.
