Birth Injury Attorney in Gainesville
When a child suffers a birth injury, the best thing you can do for them as a parent is to ensure that the injury does not decide how they live their lives now and in the future. One of the best ways to achieve this is by hiring a Gainesville birth injury lawyer from Morgan and Morgan to hold the other party accountable.
Without an attorney, the right one for that matter, you'll likely have a rough time trying to secure the all-important compensation your loved one needs to live a normal life. Depending on the severity of the injuries, your loved one may need long-term care, which is in itself expensive.
While the primary goal is to hold the other party accountable, it's critical to ensure that the kind of compensation you receive factors in all the expenses you'll incur now and in the future. That's one of the things our attorneys are good at.
We are not one of those injury firms that settle cases just to close that chapter and move on to the next. Rather, we treat each case with the seriousness it deserves and every client as a part of the Morgan and Morgan family. That's how we were able to secure a $38 million verdict for a birth injury victim a few years ago.
We've been fighting for the rights of the injured long enough to know how final these cases can be once settled. The last thing you want is to find yourself in a situation where you need more support, especially financially, to take care of your child, but you can't access it.
We do not want that to happen to you. Your loved one doesn't deserve it, either.

The Healthcare Facility Says I'm Responsible for the Birth Injury. What Should I Do?
No matter what the healthcare provider or facility says about what caused the injury, it's always advisable to have a different medical professional review your case. That way, you'll be able to establish the truth about what happened to your child.
