Seeking Justice for Victims of Neonatal Intensive Care Negligence
Taking legal action on behalf of your child
Personnel in neonatal intensive care units are supposed to be the most highly trained and talented staff in any hospital. This is because of the sensitivity of newborn babies—especially when there are complications. Medical malpractice attorneys at Osborne & Francis take aggressive legal action when neonatal intensive care unit staff fails to live up to their responsibility to care for your newborn child. We recover compensation for harm caused and financial security for any further medical treatment needed.
The challenges of proving medical malpractice in a Florida neonatal intensive care unit
The greatest hurdle for a plaintiff in these cases is proving that the harm was caused by the hospital. With the burden of proof on the plaintiff, this can be a challenge because birth injuries occur for many different reasons. It takes a skilled attorney who specializes in medical malpractice for neonatal patients to gather evidence and properly prepare for one of these cases. Clearly proving the cause of the injuries to your child is the only way to recover full and fair compensation from those that are responsible for the harm that has been done to your child so early in their life.
Common types of injuries that are specific to newborns
Newborns are more fragile and vulnerable to specific harms. Our neonatal malpractice attorneys have an advanced understanding of these injuries and how they are going to impact the rest of your child’s life. With proper treatment, some of the injuries can be overcome by the time that your child is an adult. We recover compensation from those that are responsible for the injuries and make sure that your child is going to receive the medical rehabilitation they need for those injuries for the rest of their lives. The most common injuries from neonatal intensive care unit malpractice include:
- Clavicle fractures
- Erb’s palsy
- Preventable fractions
- Cerebral palsy
- Facial paralysis
- Neonatal hypoglycemia treatment inadequacies
- Wry neck
- Brachial plexus
- Brain damage and head trauma
