Helping Parents Pursue Compensation for Injured Children

Childbirth is a delicate process requiring careful attention by highly trained professionals. Injuries that occur during delivery can have long-term consequences for a child's health and quality of life, and in some extremely unfortunate cases, birth injuries can prove fatal.

At the law firm of Cronin & Maxwell, PL, our Jacksonville birth injury lawyers help parents pursue medical malpractice claims on behalf of children who have been injured during the birthing process. Our attorneys are committed to getting clients the justice they deserve.

Holding Negligent Medical Providers Accountable for Delivery Errors

One of the most common birth injuries is oxygen deprivation (hypoxia), which can result in cerebral palsy, a serious neurological disorder. While not all cases of cerebral palsy are caused by oxygen deprivation during delivery, many cases have been traced back to this cause.

Cerebral palsy can have a severe impact on a child's physical and mental development. Many people with cerebral palsy require special care and treatment throughout their lives.

If your child has developed cerebral palsy as a result of doctor negligence or any other medical malpractice during delivery, you deserve an opportunity to hold the responsible parties accountable and obtain compensation for the harm done to your child and your family.

Our firm pursues malpractice claims on behalf of children with cerebral palsy and other common disorders such as Erb's palsy, which is caused by shoulder dystocia during delivery.

Injuries caused by fetal distress during childbirth are not always diagnosed right away, but the state of Florida places time limits on medical malpractice claims, so it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as you have reason to believe your child may have been injured during delivery.
