Birth Injury Lawyers in Lake County, FL
Helping You Get the Compensation You Need & Deserve
Birth injury cases often involve serious injuries sustained by the infant during delivery or labor. Too much traction during delivery may result in nerve injuries, leading to a brachial plexus injury or Erb’s palsy. Too little oxygen to the baby could result in a hypoxic brain injury, potentially causing cerebral palsy. Since these injuries occur at such a crucial time in the infant’s life, they can often have long-lasting and far-reaching consequences.
At Oldham & Smith, our birth injury attorneys in Lake County can help you pursue the far and full compensation to which you are entitled. If any medical professionals or other parties were negligent and caused your baby’s injuries, we will work to identify them and hold them accountable.
Call Oldham & Smith today at (352) 292-1620 or contact us online to learn more about how our birth injury lawyers can help you. We serve clients in Tavares and all throughout Lake County.
Why Should I Hire a Birth Injury Attorney?
Filing a birth injury claim in Florida can be complex. If the birth injury is not identified immediately, the victims family may have two to four years to file their medical malpractice claim. These time frames, however, don't apply in all cases and may vary depending on your specific case. By enlisting the expertise of a skilled birth injury attorney, you can move forward knowing how long you have to file your claim and be assured that important deadlines will be met. Working with an attorney has many benefits and can, at it's core, allow you time for healing while we focus on getting you the compensation you deserve.
