Justice In Birth Injury Cases
At Kammholz Messina, LLP, we understand the sensitive and critical nature of birth injury cases. Your beautiful, loving baby has been devastated by serious injuries, and the doctor who has dedicated his or her career to bringing babies into the world was the cause. This horrible result was caused by someone you trusted.
Emotions can run no higher than you are experiencing now. We understand your concerns and worries. We are on your side, and we can help you remain strong through it all. We believe that there is no excuse for injuries during childbirth.
Doing What Is Right For Your Child
This process requires strength, and we will be with you, hand-in-hand. We will take the time to understand your unique concerns, and we will always keep you informed of progress, working in your best interests constantly. When your baby is not able to feed or coo normally, there is a problem. When your baby is experiencing seizures or is inconsolable, there is a problem.
Even so, your baby is still your beautiful, loving baby. We will work aggressively to get the full and fair compensation you deserve for your past, present and future costs and hardships.
The statute of limitations in birth injury cases is 10 years from the date of injury (usually birth). Many people do not consider the fact that their doctor or someone else on the delivery team may have screwed up, causing a devastating birth injury. You still have time to speak with a lawyer about your case.
If you are wondering whether someone was negligent and made a preventable error when your child was born, please call us in Rochester at 585-687-4425 and allow our team to look into it. Our evaluation of your case is free.
Not only are doctors well-trained to handle childbirth itself, but there are countless checkpoints throughout pregnancy designed so that doctors can identify and overcome any complications that may arise. When they fail to identify complications or fail to react appropriately to complications by performing a cesarean section or another procedure, they should be held accountable.
