Let Us Handle Your Levittown Birth Injury Case
If you or your baby sustained injuries due to medical malpractice during childbirth, you deserve compensation.
Possible complications related to birth injuries include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Spinal cord injury
- Bell’s palsy
- Hypoxia / Anoxia
- Bone fractures
- Erb’s palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brain damage
Babies may also experience cognitive or developmental impairment, behavioral problems, neurological challenges, seizures, and deficits in executive function.
Birth injury can result from errors made by obstetricians, nurses, and other practitioners involved in the childbirth process. As a result, your baby may need medical treatment and personal care throughout their life. Many babies who sustain injuries during childbirth may require the following:
- Speech therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Feeding therapy
- Physical therapy
- Assistive care
- Accessibility modifications in the home
Some children require full-time care. In almost all cases this leads to enormous financial strain for the parents. Sometimes circumstances require at least one parent to quit their job. In such situations, the work-circumstances of the parent that continues to work are likely to be dramatically affected as well. It is not unusual for the overwhelming economic and emotional burden to disrupt every aspect of life for a family that experiences a birth injury.

Demonstrating Liability in a Birth Injury Case
Our legal team begins by investigating the circumstances of the birth injury. We obtain evidence and documentation to help us identify all parties who caused or contributed the injuries suffered by your baby or by you. Because medical practitioners must provide a good and accepted level of care, our team must demonstrate the following to establish liability for your damages.
Duty of care: The medical provider owed you or your baby a duty to provide an accepted level of care.
Breach of duty: The medical provider did not provide a good and accepted level of care for you and your unborn child.
Causation: Through negligence or wrongful acts, the medical provider caused your or your baby’s injuries.
Damages: You suffered financial, physical, or emotional damages.
To demonstrate liability, we may use the following:
- Medical records
- Practitioner history
- Facility history
- Witness statements
- Expert opinions
Determining the Value of Your Birth Injury Case
After you sustain a birth injury, you may have the right to compensation for the following types of damages:
- Medical treatment
- Medications and medical devices
- Medical tests
- In-home or residential care
- Specialized therapy
- Home accessibility modifications
- Lost wages and benefits
- Direct expenses
- Emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
If you or your baby will require future care or ongoing treatment, or if you cannot return to work due to your injuries or having to provide care for your baby, you can recover compensation for:
- Projected future medical care and treatment costs
- Projected value of future lost wages and benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Diminished quality of life
To fully support the value of your case, we will use the opinions or testimony of expert witnesses. Experts can support your or your baby’s prognosis and help demonstrate the type of care and treatment you and the baby will need in the future.
