A Birth Injury Attorney in Los Angeles Serving all of California
Our Serious Injury Attorneys are Passionate Advocates for Newborns and their Families
Our lawyers work tirelessly with California parents whose newborn babies have suffered various birth injuries and families who are grieving over a wrongful death. We also represent mothers who have suffered injuries during labor. Throughout California, countless deliveries take place each day. Most are safe. When they are not, call 800-992-9947 or contact us online.
For more than 35 years, we have helped babies recover the compensation necessary if life-long 24/7 medical care is necessary for these most vulnerable members of our community. Some of the most common incidents that occur during labor are:
Lack of oxygen causing “fetal distress” that leads to brain injury
Failure-to-diagnose certain conditions before delivery leading to injuries to the mother and her baby
Extreme bruising and lacerations from the misuse of forceps
Nerve damage resulting from brachial palsy
Unfortunately, the list of possible birth injuries is nearly endless. You count on your doctor and medical staff to ensure your safety. If they have failed in this paramount responsibility, call Heller LaChapelle for compassionate and experienced birth injury attorneys. By holding those responsible for your child's birth injury, we may be able to prevent another child from enduring a similar incident.
Calling a Skilled California Birth Injury Attorney is Crucial
Insurance companies may have contacted you and gently encouraged you to settle for a certain amount. Though financial details may not be at the forefront of your mind after the trauma of a birth injury, you should not settle until you have discussed your child's circumstances with a skilled birth injury attorney.
The care that an injured child needs may be substantial. An insurance company may argue that your child will not have a normal life expectancy. They may offer a very low settlement. But your child may survive for decades and may need significant medical care. This may involve costs that are far in excess of what the insurance company may offer. Your child has a right to live with dignity and comfort for his or her entire life. Your child also has the right to compensation for pain and suffering or diminished “quality of life.”
We rely on medical experts and the leading scientists to identify your child's needs, including medical care and specialized equipment as well as occupational and physical therapy needs. Proving liability is very complex in birth injury cases. We are more than prepared. Call 800-992-9947or contact us online.
