Who Can I Sue For A Birth Injury

Who Is Responsible For An Injury To Your Newborn?

Some injuries to newborns during childbirth are simply the result of the birthing process; others are not. Those caused by a medical mistake or negligence by your birthing team are 100 percent preventable. Taking steps to hold the doctor, nurse, midwife or hospital accountable for your child's injury can help you secure the financial resources you will need to provide for your son or daughter as well as keep another family from experiencing the same trauma.

At Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A., our Miami birth injury lawyers have more than 90 years of experience helping those who have been harmed throughout South Florida secure the compensation they need and deserve after a serious injury. We offer a complimentary consultation at any of our three offices. Contact our attorneys online or at 800-815-6232 to schedule an appointment.

Who Can I Sue For A Birth Injury?

A typical labor and delivery process involves many health care professionals. A mistake by any of them can have lifelong consequences for your baby. If your newborn suffered a serious injury during birth that was the result of medical malpractice or negligence, you may have a legal claim against:

  • Your doctor, including your obstetrician or the doctor who delivered your baby
  • The nurse(s) who assisted with your childbirth
  • The anesthesiologist who prepared your epidural
  • The hospital or clinic where you delivered
  • The midwife who delivered your baby
  • The pharmacy or pharmacist who misdosed medication
  • The manufacturer of a defective fetal heart rate monitor or other device that malfunctioned during childbirth
  • The drug company who designed and distributed a defective drug used during childbirth

You may or may not know if something when wrong during childbirth that caused your son's or daughter's injury. It is not uncommon for families of babies who experience brain trauma to pursue an infant brain injury case to finally discover the details of what could have been done differently to prevent your child's injury.

At Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A., our attorneys do not expect you to have all the answers. That is where we come in. Our birth injury legal team can request medical records, talk to those involved in your childbirth and get to the root cause of your child's birth injury. We will then advise you about your legal options in pursuing a birth injury lawsuit against those responsible.

Understand Your Legal Options After A Birth Injury

The miracle of childbirth involves many, many people; a mistake by one health care professional or member of your birthing team can lead to permanent injury to your newborn. If your child shows signs of birth injury or has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy or a brachial plexus injury, let our firm figure out what went wrong. We offer a complimentary consultation at any of our South Florida law offices. Call our firm at 800-815-6232 or contact Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A. online to set up an appointment.
