The Effects of Birth Injury as Your Child Ages

Miami & Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

The birth of your child should be a reason to celebrate. Unfortunately, birth injuries are an all too common occurrence in our medically advanced nation. Providing more than just immediate complications, many birth injures will have lifelong consequences that will require rehabilitation, surgeries, and additional care.

The birth injury attorneys at the Cochran Firm South Florida have years of experience holding negligent doctors and hospitals responsible for birth injuries in Miami, Ft Lauderdale, and Fort Myers. You and your family deserve justice in these tragic cases. Our birth injury lawyers and medical malpractice team will fight tirelessly to ensure you are provided with every penny you are due.

Long-Term Effects of Birth Injuries

Depending on the nature of your child’s birth injury, he or she may be faced with cognitive, emotional, and physical disabilities for the rest of their life. This, in turn, may require physical and rehabilitative therapy, special schooling, and assisted care. In some instances, you may even have to modify the structure of your living space to accommodate your child’s disability.

These consequences have both emotional and financial repercussions. Medical assistance, rehabilitative services, retro-fitting your home, and providing adequate care to meet your child’s needs will require a substantial amount of money. In the meantime, the emotional toll can be devastating to every member of your family, making your child’s birth injury a point of contention and potentially driving your family apart.

You deserve to be provided with adequate compensation to cover all of your family’s damages. This may include compensation for all current and future medical and rehabilitative expenses, the cost of schooling and care, and the cost of emotional damages. Our compassionate Miami birth injury lawyers will work closely with your family, taking into account the full extent of your child’s injury, and we will fight to ensure you and your family are taken care of in the trying years to come.
