The Michigan birth injury attorneys at Barberi Law have built a reputation based on professionalism, dedication and personal attention. We understand that our clients are facing an emotionally challenging time. It is our goal to remove as much of the burden from their shoulders as we can, while resolving the cases in the most efficient manner possible. Most clients are troubled by a wide range of questions, including:
- Are birth injuries common?
- What happened?
- Are all birth injuries permanent?
- How soon will a birth injury become apparent?
- If the injury was caused by a piece of equipment, can I sue the manufacturer?
These and many more questions are answered in a free booklet provided by our law firm. No matter your situation, we encourage you to contact our office. We will mail you our booklet, free of charge, and if you desire, you can schedule a consultation at our office with one of our attorneys experienced in handling birth injury cases.
- What are the most common types of birth injury?
Injuries due to medical malpractice or hospital negligence run a wide gamut. We have handled cases involving shoulder dystocia, brachial plexus injuries, cerebral palsy, hypoxic brain injuries and forceps injuries. Additionally, serious conditions can result from a medical professional failing to recognize fetal distress or not ordering a cesarean section in a timely fashion.
- What kind of damages can be collected if my child’s birth injury was caused by negligence?
As in most personal injury cases, damages such as medical bills, and pain and suffering can be pursued. The damages are based on the injury and the lifetime impact, consideration for future medical treatment, physical therapy, life-care plan expenses and diminished earning potential. If your questions are not answered by our booklet, we encourage you to contact our office as soon as possible to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced birth trauma attorneys.
