Causes of Developmental Delays

A birth injury can lead to both physical and mental developmental delays. Oxygen deprivation during delivery may result in brain damage, while a brachial plexus injury can prevent a child from developing full use of the arm. These kinds of issues lead to long-term effects for both the child and the family.

Recovering Compensation

Will your child require special schooling or in-home care? Does your child need surgery or medical devices to help him or her regain use of a limb? All of these specific factors of your case will determine the amount of compensation you need to move forward from the tragedy of a preventable birth injury.

We have professional nurses on staff and access to a network of medical experts who will examine your case and help determine the full scope and severity of the developmental issue. We use their expertise to build a strong case on your behalf.
