The Ft. Lauderdale area birth injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Spingarn & Associates, P.A. can help you and your family if your child has suffered any of the following types of injuries due to medical negligence:
- Brain damage
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Klumpke’s palsy
- Broken bones
Some of the above can result in serious complications. For example, cerebral palsy can affect a child for the rest of his or her life, and can cause motion and coordination problems as well as speech problems. For a child who has received brain damage due to lack of oxygen or other complication during birth and delivery, the prognosis depends upon the severity and duration of the lack of oxygen. A perfectly healthy newborn can suffer severe brain damage resulting in severe mental retardation and developmental challenges that last a lifetime. In fact, some of these problems can shorten a child’s life significantly and can even result in death.
Mr. Spingarn and his legal team are aware of the trauma and emotional difficulties that a parent goes through after their newborn child has suffered a serious injury. You need someone who will stand by you and protect your rights and those of your child.
