These problems can usually be prevented and are often the result of carelessness or negligence on the part of your physician, anesthetist, nurses, midwives or hospital staff. If your family was injured at birth, you need to speak to an experienced attorney. Contact our Pittsburgh birth injury lawyers for a free initial consultation.
Consequences of a Birth Injury
Birth injuries can be catastrophic, causing severe physical and mental disabilities that will last a lifetime. Some of the most common problems resulting from birth injuries include:
Most of these injuries are devastating, and many cost millions of dollars over the lifetime of your child. Expenses such as medical bills, rehabilitation, special education, attendant care and medical equipment make having a handicapped child enormously expensive. Intangible costs such as lost wages, reduced employment and the emotional suffering of parents add to the cost of a birth injury. These cases are among the most expensive, time consuming and complex cases to litigate. They are aggressively defended, difficult to settle and difficult to win. Only experienced attorneys should handle a serious birth injury claim.
