Birth Injuries

Neonatal Claims

Birth Injuries The birth of a child is supposed to be a beautiful event, bringing joy to parents, family and friends. The eager anticipation of a new baby entering the family; followed by the unfortunate let down of a birth injury is devastating for anyone. Nobody ever thinks that birth injuries happen, but the reality is that things can go wrong at birth which may result in serious complications and injuries to both baby and mother as well. Sometimes, these complications or injuries are as a result of the negligence of the doctor or health care professional. Birth injuries occur one in out of every eight hundred fifty seven births. Not all of these birth injuries result in damages, injuries or law suits. But some do. Common birth injuries to baby include brain injury as a result of not enough oxygen getting to the new born; facial paralysis as a result of the use of forceps at birth; Erb’s palsy due to a doctor’s error or negligence at delivery; or even wrongful death due to a variety of other complications at birth.

Review: Goldfinger Law
5.0 "Brian has been our Guiding Light"
Our lives changed on October 7, 2004 when our beautiful baby girl Nancy was born at a hospital in Toronto. We can't say which one given the nature of the confidentiality agreement which we signed. We thought the delivery was going normal and according to plan, but apparently, it wasn't. That's when our lives changed completely. We don't know the specifics of the medical terminology, but essentially, Nancy wasn't getting enough oxygen to her brain on account of poor technical procedures and poor monitoring by the doctors and nurses in the delivery room that day. Nancy almost died. Thank God he she didn't. The people in the delivery room got really loud, and then really quiet and would not talk to my wife and I that much after Nancy had been delivered. We knew something went terribly wrong that day which nobody wanted to share with us. Nancy was born with a brain injury and she will require developmental assistance for the rest of her life. This isn't easy for us, and the help Nancy needs doesn't come cheap and lots of it isn't covered by OHIP. Brian Goldfinger helped us sue the hospital, nurses and doctors. The case settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. Although nothing can be done to get Nancy back to 100%, Brian has ensured that we will have the resources to care for her and put in the programs necessary so that she gets by. Brian has also ensured that Nancy will be compensated for her lack of competitive advantage in the workplace given the nature of her injuries. This whole ordeal has been a nightmare for my family, but Brian has been our guiding light. We can't thank him enough for the great job he did on our case. Jordyn & Jeff- Toronto, ON
