Birth Injury Attorney in West Palm Beach
The birth of a child is supposed to be an exciting moment, not a source of pain. Unfortunately, if the birth process is not done correctly, mistakes are bound to happen. The saddest thing about these mistakes is that they can be very unforgiving.
We’ve seen cases where children who developed birth-related injuries were never able to regain certain body functions, even as adults. Take, for example, a case of paralysis caused by failure to follow proper procedures during the birth process.
Most children are usually even lucky to live a normal life after such birth injuries. Some who are not so lucky require long-term care. You already know how expensive healthcare is in Florida and the entire nation.
The last thing you want is to find yourself in a situation where your child needs specialized care, but you cannot afford it. That’s where Morgan and Morgan comes in as America’s largest and most powerful injury firm to fight for the compensation you deserve to take care of your loved one long after they’ve left the hospital.
If your loved one was injured during birth, please fill out our free case evaluation form today. One of our legal representatives might be able to fight for you.

Are Birth Injury Cases Difficult to Win?
Yes, in fact, they are. That’s because there’s usually a thin line between injuries caused by mistakes and those that occur naturally. Take cerebral palsy as an example. This is the kind of condition that could be acquired while the baby is still developing in the womb or due to someone’s mistake during the birth process. Determining whether such a condition was caused naturally or acquired during birth can be challenging.
What Do I Need to Prove My Case?
You can play a vital role in proving liability by gathering crucial evidence such as photos and videos, medical records and doctor’s reports, and documenting everything from the child’s date of birth. While that may not be all that’s needed to win the case, it can help guide your attorney on the areas to look at when investigating the case.
Who Can Be Held Liable?
Liability for birth injuries can swing in either direction. Depending on how your case unfolds, you may be able to take legal action against nurses, doctors, midwives, or even the healthcare facility.
What Damages Can I Recover?
One of the things we’ll look at is how exactly the injury happened and its impact on your loved one’s life. This will help us determine the scope of injury and the damages you may be able to recover. That said, plaintiffs in such cases have been able to recover medical expenses, lost wages (in the case of parents taking time off work to take care of their loved ones), reduced quality of life, pain and suffering, and more.
