Norwalk Connecticut Birth Injury Lawyer
Fairfield County Obstetrician Malpractice Claim Attorney
An injury during birth can turn a highly anticipated event into a tragedy. This type of injury affects the baby, parents and family, leaving many people seeking answers about what went wrong. While a lawsuit cannot undo an injury, it can help you find answers and hold the negligent party responsible.
I understand that this is a difficult time for your family. At the law office of Richard H. Raphael, I work hard to meet the needs of each family as I pursue fair compensation for their losses. With more than 30 years of experience as a lawyer, I have considerable knowledge of medical malpractice claims and the ability to negotiate with insurance companies and present cases to juries.
Westport, Connecticut Malpractice Attorney
You can come to my law office with obstetrical malpractice claims involving injuries to infants, birth trauma and injuries to the mother, such as:
- Vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC)
- Delay in removing baby/performing cesarean section
- Failure to diagnose preeclampsia
- Misuse of forceps
A birth trauma can cause a range of serious injuries or fatal conditions, including:
- Cerebral palsy
- Skull damage caused by forceps
- Brain injuries from being in the birth canal for too long
- Nerve damage to infants
- Wrongful death of the mother or infant
You need an attorney who can help you determine your immediate needs and the long-term consequences of a birth injury. A baby who suffers brain damage can live for many years; the cost of long-term medical care can reach hundreds of thousands of dollars. I can seek compensation to pay the medical bills, as well as additional expenses.
