Levine & Partners Law Firm
Our Miami-based law firm specializes in handling medical malpractice claims arising from birth trauma injuries to the brachial plexus and other birth-related injuries.
Our law Firm, based in Miami, has developed a specialization in handling medical malpractice claims arising from birth trauma injuries to the brachial plexus and other birth related injuries. While therapy and surgical reconstruction of obstetrical brachial plexus injuries in many cases will lessen the effects of a brachial plexus injury, many children will never have a normal extremity symmetrical with the uninjured side. In many instances, the injury is permanent and devastating.
The obstetrical brachial plexus injury is often referred to as Erbs Palsy and has established fetal risk factors including macrosomia (birth weights greater than 8 lbs. 13 ounces), maternal obesity and diabetes. The use of forceps, vacuum extractions and other delivery methods also increase the risk of brachial plexus injuries. Breech presentation with vaginal delivery is also at high risk. The Firm Co-Counsels brachial plexus injury claims with other counsel specializing in these cases throughout the United States and has established relationships with experts and other resources to assist in the successful prosecution of these claims.
The law Firm takes a comprehensive “Family” approach to the problems confronted by these injuries by also assisting with insurance coverage issues and the development of life care plans. For assistance, contact us today!
