Neonatal ICU Error Litigation

Seeking Justice for Victims of Neonatal Intensive Care Negligence

Taking legal action on behalf of your child

Personnel in neonatal intensive care units are supposed to be the most highly trained and talented staff in any hospital. This is because of the sensitivity of newborn babies—especially when there are complications. Medical malpractice attorneys at Osborne & Francis take aggressive legal action when neonatal intensive care unit staff fails to live up to their responsibility to care for your newborn child. We recover compensation for harm caused and financial security for any further medical treatment needed.

The challenges of proving medical malpractice in a Florida neonatal intensive care unit

The greatest hurdle for a plaintiff in these cases is proving that the harm was caused by the hospital. With the burden of proof on the plaintiff, this can be a challenge because birth injuries occur for many different reasons. It takes a skilled attorney who specializes in medical malpractice for neonatal patients to gather evidence and properly prepare for one of these cases. Clearly proving the cause of the injuries to your child is the only way to recover full and fair compensation from those that are responsible for the harm that has been done to your child so early in their life.

Common types of injuries that are specific to newborns

Newborns are more fragile and vulnerable to specific harms. Our neonatal malpractice attorneys have an advanced understanding of these injuries and how they are going to impact the rest of your child’s life. With proper treatment, some of the injuries can be overcome by the time that your child is an adult. We recover compensation from those that are responsible for the injuries and make sure that your child is going to receive the medical rehabilitation they need for those injuries for the rest of their lives. The most common injuries from neonatal intensive care unit malpractice include:

  • Clavicle Fracture
  • Erb's Palsy
  • Preventable Fractions
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Facial Paralysis
  • Neonatal Hypoglycemia Treatment Inadequacies
  • Wry Neck
  • Brachial Plexus

Dennis and the other Osborne & Francis staff were amazing! Our case was HUGE and required tender loving care. Everyone on our case did their part by putting all the puzzle pieces together. We were given step by step updates and put at ease when our nerves got the best of us. For every inquiry we made we received a timely response...You are appreciated!

“I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer/ firm — everything was done professionally exactly how I wanted. Due to COVID my personal attorney Mr. Garcia was still able to make things work in a timely manner and he never made me feel like he wasn’t working. Overall I’m happy with how my case turned out and I would recommend him and this law firm to anyone. 100% satisfied.”

Quick and fair resolution to a unique case. On advice of my own attorney, I engaged Joseph Osborne of Osborne & Francis of Boca Raton, FL. Mr. Osborne had considerable experience in cases such as mine and the results showed that. Mr. Osborne and his staff were very helpful, kept me up to date, and listened to my input. The settlement was very fair as far as I am concerned.

“I am so thankful for EVERYONE, the entire staff at Osborne & Francis Law, for mentoring me through the mediation process with my hip replacement failures. I didn't realize how MUCH pressure they relieved me of by helping me deal with the reality of this traumatic time in my life, as it was OVER so quickly with a positive result. My family is grateful to have their mom HAPPY & FOCUSED on the future, rather than worrying over what happened in the past! FAST FORWARD, we are LIVING LIFE to the fullest once again!”

“Attorneys Greg Francis and Ryan Fletcher at Osborne & Francis Law Firm represented me in my personal injury case.The defendant drew a line in the sand and was adamant on a settlement amount I was almost willing to accept. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, we settled for 3 times that amount!!! When they say ‘Real Tough Lawyers,’ they mean it.”
