At Willens Law Offices, if we agree to investigate a case involving birth injuries, we advance the money necessary to properly and thoroughly investigate the matter.
Birth injury cases are among the saddest types of cases we see at Willens Law Offices. Despite our extensive experience in handling these specific types of medical malpractice cases, there’s just no getting used to first hand witnessing the devastating affects a birth injury has on, not only the injured infant, but on the entire infant’s family. That includes mother, father, siblings, grandparents and the list goes on. Sometimes, unfortunately, a medical malpractice case involving a birth injury rips apart an entire family.
Many birth injury cases involve cerebral palsy. This is often caused by lack of oxygen to the baby at, and before, the time of delivery. Another common birth injury case involves shoulder dystocia and brachial plexus injury. Sometimes these serious injuries are a result of the improper handling of an infant during labor and delivery. While these types of birth injury cases seem straight forward, they are usually anything but.
In order to investigate and if warranted, prosecute a medical malpractice case involving a birth injury, a medical expert is required, sometimes many experts, depending upon the nature of the case. Of course, this is not cheap. Many lawyers who handle medical malpractice cases will front the money needed to look into the circumstances of a birth injury matter. Some don’t and will ask the family for money to begin the investigation.
