Florida Birth Injury Lawyers
Childbirth is an incredibly special moment for parents, and a vulnerable and anxious time as well. When you entrust medical staff with your care and expect a safe delivery, it can be devastating to learn that something went wrong.
When the medical staff makes a mistake, it can lead to birth injuries – complications at or around birth that injures your child and can create lifelong issues. Birth injury is complex and can occur in the form of many different diagnoses. One negligent mistake from medical staff can lead to a sequence of other complications that further injure the baby. If this mistake could have been prevented, it’s considered medical malpractice.
If you believe that malpractice occurred during your child’s birth in Florida, you may be entitled to compensation for your child’s medical care.
Birth injuries can be obvious right away, especially if the baby is born not breathing or unresponsive. However, in some cases, the injury may not be apparent until the baby grows and does not develop normally.
Statute of Limitations
There is a time limit for filing a lawsuit, called the statute of limitations. The statute depends on which location and facility the injury took place in. It can also depend on what age your child is and be subject to change. If you believe you have a case, it’s important to contact a birth injury lawyer to confirm your statute and understand your legal options.
