Has Your Child Suffered from a Birth Injury?
Giving birth to a child is one of the most amazing, miraculous events in human experience. Unfortunately, sometimes the birth process can result in serious injuries to the mother or child. The injuries can vary in severity from bruising, to brain damage, to wrongful death.
Birth injuries can arise from natural occurrences such as:
- The position of the baby in the womb
- The size of the baby
- Oxygen deprivation
In some cases, however, the injuries can be the result of a failure to provide the accepted standard of care, a form of negligence of the delivery staff at the hospital or other facility. If you or a loved one has been injured in a birth, you could be eligible to receive compensation for your suffering and expenses if it is believed that it was caused by a breach of duty of a medical provider. By consulting with a New Jersey birth injury lawyer you can get experienced legal representation that will help you address this serious and tragic situation.
Birth injury claims typically tend to be more complex than any other personal injury claims due to the technical and specialized nature of the field. With the right legal help at your side to aid you in your claim, you may be able to recover financial compensation, which will cover your child's medical care and any future treatments and care.

Do I need an attorney if I've already been offered a settlement?
The offer you received from the insurance company is almost certainly less than what you are entitled to, by a significant margin. Insurance companies, just like any other business, are structured to maximize their own profits, and in addition to offering a minimal amount in any settlement, they will also commonly employ aggressive tactics against claimants like you to discourage requests for full compensation. We can not only advise you of what your case is really worth, but also provide skilled representation to help you recover damages.
How much is my case worth?
Each personal injury case is unique, and your attorney will consult with you in detail to help you determine the full value of your claim. In any fair settlement, you should expect to receive enough money to cover all your medical bills, from emergency treatment at the scene of the accident to rehabilitative care to help you fully recover. Claims of this nature should also cover the amount of income you will lose due to the injury from missing work or inability to perform on your job, as well as compensation for the pain and suffering you experienced.
How long will it take to resolve my case?
A variety of factors will play into how long it takes to get your insurance settlement, from the availability of evidence to support your claim to how cooperative the insurance company is and how effectively you can prepare your case. At our firm, our legal team takes every case seriously and we will do everything possible to achieve a successful resolution for you. We will also keep you informed throughout the entire process about what you may be up against and how long you can expect your case to take.
