Has Your Son Or Daughter Been Robbed Of A Normal Life?

Few moments in life are more joyful than the birth of a child. Bringing a new human being into the world is an experience that simply can’t be translated into words.

For an unfortunate few, however, this experience turns to tragedy. Medical errors can have heartbreaking, lifelong consequences in the pregnancy and childbirth context. A mistake might leave your precious newborn with lifelong health struggles — or, worse, it might rob your baby of that life altogether.

Benefit From Our Wide Breadth Of Experience

At the Philadelphia law firm of Young Ricchiuti Caldwell & Heller, we represent children and families throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania who have been put through the unspeakable tragedy of a birth injury or loss.

With more than 200 years of combined experience, our attorneys have successfully handled a wide array of birth injury cases, including:

  • Cerebral palsy (ataxic, spastic and athetoid or dyskinetic)
  • Erb’s palsy and other Brachial plexus injuries
  • Hypoxia
  • Injuries associated with a failure to monitor vital signs during or after delivery
  • Forceps and vacuum injuries
  • Failure to perform a C-section
  • Uterine rupture and other injuries suffered by the mother

We have won verdicts and settlements in excess of $10 million in birth injury cases.

We Know What You’re Going Through

Our lawyers have seen the vast array of things that can go wrong during pregnancy and childbirth. We understand the questions and uncertainties you may be facing during this difficult time. By working with highly respected medical experts and conducting a thorough investigation of your situation, we will help you get the answers you need to have closure. Our lawyers will also work tirelessly to hold the negligent parties accountable.

We also understand the obstacles your child may face as a direct result of malpractice involving prenatal care, labor and delivery, or postnatal care. Your son or daughter may need a lifetime of care — something you likely didn’t plan for, either emotionally or financially. We will help you pursue the financial compensation necessary to provide for your child’s every need.
