Shoulder dystocia (when one or both of the baby’s shoulders get stuck in the mother’s pelvis during delivery)
Skull fractures or bone fractures
Spinal cord injuries
Stillbirths and death
Umbilical cord strangulation
While some birth injuries may heal completely, others may call for lifelong medical care.
If you believe your child’s birth injury was caused by medical malpractice, a Florida birth injury lawyer may be able to help you hold negligent health care providers accountable for the harm they caused.
4. We’ll Negotiate Birth Injury Settlements on Your Behalf
Our attorneys will negotiate a Florida birth injury settlement with the defendant(s), which would be the hospital or medical professionals responsible for your child’s birth injury.
The majority of cases end in a settlement, which means you may not have to step foot in court.
If a settlement is unable to be reached, our birth injury lawyers are prepared to present your case in a trial and fight for a verdict on your behalf.
Our Past Florida Birth Injury Settlements
At Sokolove Law, we’ve recovered over $905 Million for birth injury victims, including children and families in Florida.
Some of our past Florida birth injury settlements and verdicts include:
$9 Million for a Saint Petersburg family affected by birth injuries
$7.8 Million for a child in Tampa with cerebral palsy
$6.75 Million for an Orlando child with CP
$4.99 Million for an 11-year-old with cerebral palsy in Miami
$4.5 Million for a child in Davie who suffered injuries at birth
$1 Million for a child in Ocala with Erb’s palsy from shoulder dystocia
While Florida birth injury settlement amounts depend on various factors — like the severity of the injury and the cost of the child's care — our attorneys will fight for the most compensation possible in your case.
Receiving compensation from a birth injury lawsuit in Florida can help to lessen the burden of ongoing medical treatments and other costs related to your child’s injury.
