Thank you for your interest in the DeFrancisco & Falgiatano Law Firm. Our law firm has extensive experience handling birth injury cases. Having an experienced lawyer is critical for birth injury cases because they are some of the most complex litigation matters to pursue. To successfully pursue a birth injury case, one needs to prove that medical negligence caused injury to the child. There are some occasions where children are born with injuries or disabilities that were not caused by medical negligence. However, there are other situations where an injury to a child was caused by a medical provider’s failure to follow generally accepted medical standards of care. Where a child was injured or disability should have been prevented, that child should be entitled to fair compensation and medical care for the injuries they have suffered.
Given our extensive experience handling birth injury cases, our firm has access to objective medical experts who will assist in determining if a meritorious case exists, and through the litigation process. Most birth injury cases require multiple medical specialties given the nature of the malpractice and the injuries. Some of the common medical experts for birth injury matters include: obstetricians-gynecologists, pediatric neurologists, pediatric neuroradiologists, life care planners, and economists.
If you believe your child may have sustained a preventable injury, call us for a free consultation. There are costs for consultations and you will never be required to pay any legal fees unless we are able to recover compensation for your child.
