Birth Injury Lawyer Lake Worth, FL
If you or your infant received inadequate care when your baby was in-utero and your baby suffered harm as a result, please connect with a birth injury lawyer Lake Worth, FL residents trust. When pregnant patients and/or their fetuses receive substandard care before an infant is born and harm results from that substandard care, affected parents may be able to file a personal injury suit in order to hold their medical team accountable for that harm. These cases are sometimes referred to as pre-birth negligence cases or prenatal care malpractice.
No two cases are exactly alike and this area of law is notoriously complex. As a result, you should try to avoid making assumptions about whether you have grounds for legal action or not. Even if you’re unsure of whether your baby’s injuries could have been prevented, it’s a good idea to schedule a consultation with the experienced Florida legal team at The Law Office of Eric H. Luckman, P.A. Consulting our firm’s Lake Worth, FL birth injury lawyer now may enable you to cover the costs associated with the harm that your child has suffered – both medical costs, etc. already incurred and costs related to your child’s future care and expenses.
Pre-Birth Negligence – The Basics
Prenatal malpractice or pre-birth negligence cases progress in much the same ways that most personal injury cases do. To hold a medical care provider, hospital, drug manufacturer, etc. responsible for the harm they have caused your child, our firm will need to establish that the responsible party owed your child and/or its pregnant mother a duty of care under the law. If the child’s mother was a patient of the responsible party or was prescribed a drug manufactured by a responsible party, this relationship is relatively easy to establish.
More difficult to establish are the legal requirements that the responsible party breached that duty of care and that the breach directly led to your child’s injuries. Our firm has extensive experience handling birth injury cases, so we know what questions to ask when seeking to clarify exactly how and why an infant was injured either in-utero or during the birth process.
Too often, medical providers try to cover their tracks in the wake of making a mistake. Patients are not always granted access to the information they need to make an informed decision about whether to hold their medical team and/or others responsible for an injury. Thankfully, our team is familiar with these tactics. You may or may not have grounds for legal action. But if you entrust your case to our firm, we’ll do our utmost to uncover the truth so that you aren’t left wondering, “What if?” and “What really happened?” for the rest of your days.
