We Help You Look Ahead
Few things are as difficult as feeling powerless to help your child. After a birth injury, parents often feel helpless and angry. During this time, it is difficult to think about the future, but your family will have many needs in the years ahead. Depending on the severity of the injury, it may cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to care for your child. The cost of caring for a child with brain damage can exceed $1 million.
An experienced medical malpractice lawyer can help you obtain the compensation you need to provide adequate medical care for your child. At Benninger Law, we have represented many families in West Virginia and Pennsylvania after a birth injury. We understand that you need answers in addition to financial compensation.
You can rely on our attorneys for our commitment to each client's needs and our compassion for families who have suffered a tragedy. For a free consultation with a Morgantown birth injury attorney, please call 304-241-1856 or contact us online.
Money cannot undo the damage that has been done. However, it can allow you to get your child the long-term medical care he or she needs. Your family will need compensation for medical bills, long-term treatment and lost wages/benefits.
We represent families after many types of birth injuries, including:
- Brain damage
- Oxygen deficiency and hypoxic-anoxic encephalopathy
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb's palsy
- Brachial plexus
- Shoulder dystocia
- Broken clavicle
- Forceps damage
- Intraventricular hemorrhage
- C-section errors
These injuries can be caused by issues such as the baby spending too much time in the birth canal, the umbilical cord wrapping around the baby's neck, improper use of forceps or a vacuum, the baby's shoulder getting caught on the mother's pubic bone during birth or failure to consult a maternal-fetal medicine specialist for high-risk pregnancies and complex births.
We also represent families after the wrongful death of the baby or mother.
