A birth injury is a tragic setback for a family that was looking forward to welcoming a new child into the family. When infants suffer trauma at birth, they may have to contend with developmental disabilities that last a lifetime. Mothers, too, can suffer severe injuries in the delivery room and complications such as gestational diabetes, preeclampsia and infections before and after giving birth.

We have more than 25 years of experience handling birth injury claims and other medical malpractice cases for people in Wesley Chapel and throughout Florida. Attorney Craig J. Olsen will work with you personally to help you understand your rights and the legal process.

Handling All Types Of Birth Injury Claims

Complications during birth are not uncommon, and many injuries are the result of unforeseeable setbacks. When the standard of care falls below an accepted standard, however, and an injury results, it is a case of medical malpractice.

Common birth injuries include:

  • Hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain leading to cerebral palsy and other conditions)
  • Shoulder dystocia (leading to Erb’s palsy)
  • Fractures
  • Forceps injuries
  • Wrongful death of the child or mother

We aggressively seek out the facts in birth injury cases. When our investigations uncover evidence of negligence on the part of obstetricians, delivery room nurses and other medical professionals, we work tirelessly to hold negligent parties accountable, and to help our clients obtain fair and just compensation for their many losses.
