A birth injury transforms what should be a joyous family event into a difficult challenge. Whether the condition that results from this type of medical malpractice is temporary or permanent, infants are especially vulnerable to physical harm, and medical costs associated with obstetric and neonatal care can be extremely high. Levine Law Group in Mooresville represents clients from the Carolinas in a wide array of birth injury claims. In actions relating to cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries, oxygen deficiency and other critical problems, we work to deliver justice when a child is victimized by the negligence of healthcare professionals.

Coping with an injury to your infant is difficult and facing a legal process might seem intimidating, but from start to finish, our compassionate attorneys will treat you and your family with the utmost care and concern.
Depending on the particular type of birth injury, children and their families may face physical and financial hardship for years or decades to come. When trying one of these cases or negotiating a settlement, we develop a clear perspective not only on current medical costs but also on long-term expenses, including extra education and training that might be required and modifications that might be necessary to a victim’s home. Both North and South Carolina have installed damage caps for noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering.
