Providing Compassionate Guidance To Parents Whose Children Suffered Birth Injuries
The birth of a child is a joyous occasion. Your family is growing. In some cases, birth injuries can occur, resulting in the child needing lifelong care. If your child was injured, ask a lawyer first. It is essential that all negligent medical staff members or facilities be held responsible.
At the Pensacola office of Phil Hall, P.A., we are dedicated to each and every one of our personal injury clients, helping them understand their rights after their children have suffered birth injuries due to medical malpractice. We understand the emotions that accompany these cases, and we know how badly you want to protect your child. We are compassionate in our approach with you, your child and your family, but we are zealous in the pursuit of justice on your behalf.
Adjusting In The Present; Planning For The Future
A birth injury may impact a child and family for years to come. It is important that immediate issues are evaluated, addressed and treated. But it is also important that a plan be developed with a care team that can provide insight into the treatments and accommodations that may be needed in the future.
This is why it is so important to have a lawyer on your side who can be your voice and make the opposing counsel understand just what you are facing as a family. Not only are there medical costs associated with the injuries and subsequent disabilities, but there is a change in the family dynamic that would not have occurred had the medical negligence not taken place. You deserve to be comprehensively compensated in order to help your child and other family members live their lives to the fullest.
