Having a baby should be a joyous experience, unfortunately for thousands of families each year unexpected complications turn that joy into tragedy. As the CDC reported, the rate of serious complications during labor and delivery is on the rise and has increased as much as 75 percent over the past decade. In 2008 and 2009, there were 129 cases of severe injury or complications for every 10,000 women who gave birth in a hospital setting. These complications can cause devastation to mother and baby. When a mother or child is injured during childbirth, the doctor, hospital or healthcare provider may be held legally accountable for any mistakes that were made that caused the damage. A Fort Lauderdale birth injury attorney at Steinger, Greene & Feiner can provide guidance and advice to families affected by a birth injury and fight for their right to full and fair compensation for any losses incurred as a result of the injury.
Doctors and other care providers must monitor both mother and baby carefully during pregnancy and after birth. Every care provider has an obligation to provide reasonably competent medical assistance to patients and when a doctor or hospital fails to do that, the outcome can be tragic. Unfortunately, there are many different types of mistakes that can be made both during the pregnancy process and during childbirth. Some of the common errors made by medical professionals caring for pregnant mothers that can lead to birth injuries include:
These are mistakes that no competent medical professionals should make. When one or more of these errors occur, the doctor or care provider can and should be held accountable for the consequences.
A personal injury can occur in a variety of ways, but almost all have the same results in common. Suddenly, your life is disrupted and possibly jeopardized physically, emotionally, and financially by an accident or incident which could have been prevented.
A fair settlement is not what you can expect to receive from the insurance company. Their goal is to reduce payouts on claims so they can remain highly profitable. Our proven and committed legal team understands the tactics these companies regularly use to pay claimants as little as possible. We routinely battle their schemes in and out of court, and have developed effective methods for doing so.
With a legal team of more than 30 lawyers and more than 140 staff, including investigators and other assistants, we have the resources needed to get the job done efficiently. With our No-Fee Guarantee, you can bring your personal injury case to us with confidence, knowing you will pay nothing until we recover the compensation you deserve. Throughout the entire case, we will be by your side, providing the guidance you need.
I never, in my wildest dreams, could have foreseen that I would meet and be represented by such kind, professional, supportive, (I could go on) people as the people that I came in contact with who represent your office. Literally, every single one of them! I somehow chose your firm, out of all of them out there, and I could not be happier to be so wrong regarding my initial incorrect stereotype about big Personal Injury law firms. I have made sure that everyone I know is aware of my experience with Steinger, Greene, and Feiner, and I have let it be known that if they should ever be in the need of legal representation, there is no better phone call to make. Thank you so very much and please extend my sincerest thanks to Christina and the wonderful team that I had.
