As many as seven out of every thousand live births involves some form of birth injury. Heuer Fischer, P.A. help clients whose children suffer injuries like cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy, brachial plexus injury, and other types of brain damage due to an oxygen deficiency during birth, paralysis and shoulder dystocia.
Experienced and aggressive, we are ready to work hard to help your family file a lawsuit against the doctor, nurse, hospital or other healthcare provider who is responsible. Such a suit focuses on costs resulting from the injury, which can include the following in the most severe cases:
- Extended medical care following the birth
- Extended medical care throughout the child's life
- Special equipment required for home care of the child (such as a van, wheelchair and in-home medical supplies)
- Home care throughout the child's life
- Lifelong food and housing, as the child will likely be unable to earn a living
- Loss of enjoyment of life by the child, parents and siblings
