Birth Injury and Birth Trauma
A child’s birth should be a time of joy and celebration. However, that celebration can be cut short when medical malpractice causes a birth injury. Families are suddenly faced with a devastating and uncertain future for their child. It can be hard to know what the next step is.
This is a difficult time, not only emotionally but also financially. That’s why the birth injury attorneys of Karp and Hart, PC can provide important assistance and advice to families affected by such birth injuries as cerebral palsy, shoulder dystocia, and Erb’s palsy. If you live in or near Chester County, Pennsylvania and your child was born with a birth injury, our attorneys can take the legal burden from your shoulders.
To remain in compliance with the statutes of limitations in Chester County and the rest of Pennsylvania, it is important to act quickly. Our birth injury attorneys can secure the statements, records, and evidence required to fight for compensation in court, and the y will do it in a professional and compassionate matter.
In purely clinical terms, “birth trauma” and “birth injury” refer to the variety of injuries that can occur just before, during or immediately following birth.
In human terms, they mean something else entirely. Because the results of birth trauma injuries are devastating to families, both emotionally and financially, the law seeks to protect victims.
At Karp and Hart we understand both the medical and human aspects of birth-related injury cases. We have a passion for this work, and we have extensive experience and success with these cases. Pregnancy complications and the various types of birth injury claims our attorneys handle include:
No parent should have to experience the death of a child or the tragedy of a preventable birth injury. There is no experience more devastating, no pain more complete. If you have recently experienced either of these tragedies yourself, the grief and anger are immeasurable.
We want you to know that whether you are in need of financial compensation to pay for medical bills and other expenses, or you are searching for some measure of justice, our medical malpractice lawyers can help you with your case. At this most difficult time, you need people on your side who will stand up for the rights of you and your child and who will support you as you begin to heal. Please contact us.
