Philadelphia Birth Injury Lawyer

Fighting for a Fair Recovery for You & Your Child

The birth of a child should be a joyous occasion but, when something goes wrong, parents find themselves facing an incredibly stressful and uncertain future. When a child dies because of a doctor or nurse’s negligence, the resulting grief is unimaginable. Almost 28,000 infants are born with a birth injury every year. Many times these injuries are entirely avoidable. Understanding how these injuries develop and what legal steps you should take are essential if you or your child has suffered a birth injury.

At The Villari Firm, PLLC, we firmly believe that no family should have to suffer the impact of a medical professional’s negligence. When these devastating events do occur, we fight tirelessly for mothers, fathers, and children who have had their lives permanently altered as a result of circumstances entirely out of their control. With over two decades of trial experience and a proven track record of success, including more than $110 million recovered for her clients, our Philadelphia birth injury lawyer can help you fight for the justice and recovery you and your family are owed. While no amount of financial compensation can ever make up for what you have gone through, a fair recovery can allow you to obtain critical medical treatment, provide a better life for your child, and heal.

If you believe your child’s injuries, condition, or death was caused by a medical professional’s negligence, contact The Villari Firm, PLLC for a free consultation. Call (215) 372-8889.

What is a Birth Injury?

A birth injury results from any damage or trauma either before, during, or immediately after an infant’s birth. The severity of a birth injury can range from mild to life-threatening. In mild cases, a birth injury can heal on its own and the infant has few side effects. Other times, severe birth injuries can require extensive terapy and treatment throughout the child’s life.

Birth injuries are not the same as birth defects. A birth injury is the direct result of a medical provider's mistake or failure to act. A birth defect is caused by a genetic predisposition, or in some cases, is a side-effect of certain prescription medications.

Common Types of Birth Injuries

Our firm has successfully represented clients in a wide variety of birth injury cases, including those that involved temporary or permanent injuries, substantial damages, and death. In every instance, we provide our clients with compassionate legal counsel tailored to their unique situations, needs, and concerns.

The Villari Firm, PLLC handles a wide variety of birth injury claims with a particular emphasis on:

Additionally, we provide legal counsel and representation for mothers who suffered injuries such as hemorrhaging or placental abruption (rupture), as well as the surviving family members of mothers who died due to medical malpractice/negligence during labor or delivery.

No matter how serious or complex your case may be, our firm is here for you.

What to Do if You or Your Child Has a Birth Injury

Depending on the birth injury, there are several ways that they can be treated. A healthcare provider will be able to inform you of which option will be the best treatment. The following are some of the options parents of children with birth injuries might have for treatment:

  • Surgery
  • Medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Neonatal therapeutic hypothermia
  • Occupational therapy

These injuries can result in long-term effects that require consistent medical care for the baby’s whole life. Treatment is often costly, time-consuming, and can last for several years in many cases.
