Common Birth Injuries

The most common causes of birth injury are negligent prenatal care, delivery errors, or incorrect diagnoses.  Most cases of birth injury involve a deprivation of oxygen, which can cause severe permanent damage or even death to a fragile infant.  Birth injuries that may occur as a result of medical negligence include:

Effects of Birth Injuries

The effects of many birth injuries can be life-long, and the families of children with birth injuries may be faced with the challenge of funding a lifetime of care.  While no amount of money can compensate parents for the loss of their baby’s health, damages awarded for pain and suffering, medical bills, and other expenses can ease families’ financial worries so that they can focus on the future.  A compassionate birth injury lawyer at the Melbourne, Cocoa, and Titusville offices of Charpentier Law Firm, P.A. in Central Florida can help families recover the full compensation to which they are entitled and ensure that their child receives the best possible care, now and in the future.
