The birth of a baby is understandably one of life’s greatest highlights. When a parent’s joy and excitement is overshadowed by tragedy, however, the milestone celebration can quickly turn to a stressful and worrisome situation. It is helpful for North Carolina parents to know that if they or their child become victim to a birth injury, justice can be sought by filing a legal claim in a civil court against any party or parties deemed negligent in the matter.
At Rhine Law Firm, P.C., our dedicated team of Wilmington birth injury attorneys is experienced in helping families recover the full and maximum compensation they deserve for the suffering they have endured. Many birth injuries occur due to improper monitoring of a mother during labor and delivery. Failing to recognize signs of distress can have catastrophic results for a mother and/or her baby.
At Rhine Law Firm, we have handled cases involving fetal heart monitoring errors, oxygen deprivation, improper use of forceps and other birth-related complications. Our lawyers are prepared to help you get answers to your questions regarding the incidents that led to yours or your child’s injury during birth. We can help you identify all possible sources of liability and will act as your personal advocate as you seek compensation for the damages you’ve sustained.
In addition to assisting clients in cases concerning injuries that have occurred directly during the birthing process, we can also help those who have suffered from complications that have arisen through negligent prenatal care. Many conditions, such as gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia can cause serious harm to a developing baby if they are not diagnosed and treated properly. Any North Carolina mother who has suffered from a medical error or whose infant suffered a birth injury due to medical malpractice can contact the Rhine Law Firm for a consultation so that we can assess the details of your case and offer guidance as to how best to proceed when considering filing a personal injury claim in court.
