At any time I would recommend Todd Minor Law Firm.Response from the ownerThank you Marcos - As you know, this was a tough fight. But with your patience we ultimately prevailed. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to show you how different we are from all the rest. - Todd trestin ptrestin p ★★★★★ Hands down, Todd Miner Law Firm is the place to go. If you're seeking a law firm that fights for you, even when the prospects of a good payout are slim, they definitely go above and beyond. They helped me immensely after my motorcycle crash. Thank you—I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.Response from the ownerTrestin - As I shared with you when we first spoke, I have been riding motorcycles since I was a young boy. I have also represented dozens if not hundreds of clients who have been injured in a motorcycle accident. Thank you for sharing your experience and kind words. - Todd Ron KingRon King ★★★★★ I was rear ended by an uninsured motorist and had some resulting neck and shoulder pain. I ended up having to be treated and was able to take care of the neck pain but the shoulder continued to give me trouble. As my PIP coverage was exhausted, I reached out to the Todd Miner Law office. I have been very happy with the service provided. From the first call (where Todd himself called me back) to the succesful conclusion everyone has been professional and helpful. In particular, Laurie Jay either has an amazing memory or a great note system on her computer. Because every time I called she was able to recall exactly what we had talked about the time before and just who I was and what I needed. She gave me great advice on navigating the Uninsured Motorist claim and we have been able to settle the claim in what I feel was fair to all parties. I hope I don’t ever have to use their service again but won’t hesitate to call them if needed.Response from the ownerI remember our initial call Ron. Thank you for sharing your positive experience in this review. I believe the time I spend personally speaking to clients helps our team create a custom path for success for each client. I am so grateful you trusted us with your case.- Todd Stacie HardyStacie Hardy ★★★★★ I was nervous to call a lawyer after our car accident but am so extremely thankful that I did. Todd Miner law was recommended to us and after an initial consultation, Trenton Swan was the lawyer assigned to our case. He did exactly what he said he would do and the timeframe was as expected. The unsung hero in the case was Trent’s paralegal Collette Cook. If I could give her a million stars, it still wouldn’t be enough. She answered every email and phone call almost immediately. She fought behind the scenes to make sure we received everything that we deserved. When our family had multiple serious medical issues as our case was wrapping up, she reached out to check on us because she actually cared. I never felt like a case number, or a burden, or a nuisance when I reached out multiple times in rapid succession. I can only imagine how many cases she is working at any given time, but Collette made me feel like I was the only one and I have no doubt that she makes every one of their clients feel the same way.We will always be grateful for Mr. Miner and Mr. Swan, but Collette will forever hold a special place in our hearts. If you find yourself in need of legal advice, please know that you will be in the very best hands with this most amazing team.Response from the ownerStacie - This is so wonderful to hear. Your personal experience is the experience we strive to provide to all of our clients. When you hired our firm you probably had high expectations. But you probably did not expect to connect with us on the level you did. This is just one of the many things that sets us apart from all the others. I’m so happy for you, and so proud of Collette, Trent, and my entire staff. I’m sure you will stay in touch. Thank you so much for trusting us to handle your case. - Todd Sandy BarneySandy Barney ★★★★★ Words aren't really enough to express the gratitude my father and I have towards Mark Ahrens. Mark was a blessing from beginning to end. From the first meeting we had with him, throughout the entire process, Mark was professional and caring. We are nothing but grateful.

Mark has it in his heart as do the others at our firm. We are truly unique. Thank you for sharing your experience. - Todd Chuck EvansChuck Evans ★★★★★ I cannot speak highly enough of Attorney Mark Ahrens.

    Frequently Asked Birth Injury Lawyer Questions

    Orlando Birth Injury Lawyer

    Obstetrical doctors and nurses are trained to look for signs of fetal distress during labor and delivery, and to act quickly when they are identified in order to avoid injuring the baby and mother. Failure to identify and respond to these signs can result in a devastating and preventable birth injury with lifelong consequences. Similarly, improper use of birth-assisting tools such as vacuum extractors and forceps, or improper use of birth-assisting drugs like Pitocin, can also cause lasting harm to a baby. If you believe your child’s birth injury resulted from the error of a healthcare professional or hospital, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim. Doctor negligence can result in the following preventable birth injuries:

    • Cerebral palsy, resulting in permanent damage to movement, posture and muscle tone
    • Cephalohematoma, resulting in bleeding beneath an infant’s scalp
    • Caput succedaneum, a swelling of the newborn’s scalp caused by prolonged pressure during birth
    • Brachial plexus injuries, affecting the nerves of the shoulder, arm and hand
    • Brain injuries, resulting from a lack of oxygen to the baby
    • Bone fractures, caused by excessive and overly-forceful pulling during delivery
    • Fetal stroke, resulting from birth asphyxia
    • Spinal cord injury, often resulting from a missed diagnosis of spina bifida
    • Facial paralysis, in which excessive pressure damages a baby’s facial nerves

    Birth injuries can result in lifelong physical and cognitive disability, which can have a huge impact on not just the victim, but their family as well. Expensive, ongoing medical treatment may be required throughout the child’s life. As the child grows, they may require caregivers and other resources to accommodate their special needs. Parents may have to give up their jobs in order to provide full-time care to the child. With so many financial burdens, it is important to take legal action to hold negligent doctors accountable for their error.

    Oxygen deprivation, also known as asphyxiation or birth asphyxia, is one of the most common causes of birth injuries. Asphyxiation often leads to hypoxia or anoxia, two conditions involving reduced oxygen supply to organ tissues. Both hypoxia (insufficient oxygen supply, despite adequate blood flow) and anoxia (no oxygen supply, despite adequate blood flow) can result in serious complications, including brain damage. Put simply, when oxygen levels fall too low during the birthing process, infants can quickly suffer serious and sometimes lifelong birth injuries. Some of the common causes of insufficient oxygen supply during birth include:

    • Too little oxygen in the mother’s blood
    • Early separation of the placenta
    • Umbilical cord complications, such as the cord becoming wrapped around the baby’s neck
    • Maternal infections, especially when they are not treated
    • Blocked or malformed airways
    • High or low maternal blood pressure
    • Preeclampsia (high maternal blood pressure) and eclampsia
    • Severe jaundice and/or kernicterus
    • Physical damage to the infant during delivery
    • Improper use of vacuum extractors/forceps
    • Prolonged labor/failure to order a timely cesarean section (C-section)

    Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals are responsible for monitoring the health of the baby during the labor and delivery process. When they fail to do so, they can miss signs of fetal distress. Failure to react and correct poor oxygen supply during birth can have devastating consequences for the child and his or her parents. Some of the effects of poor oxygen supply to the infant during birth include:

    • Brain damage
    • Cerebral palsy
    • Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)
    • Epilepsy and seizure disorders
    • Behavioral disorders
    • Learning disabilities and cognitive delays

    A child who suffers birth asphyxia may struggle in reaching developmental milestones and could have difficulties caring for him/herself for the remainder of his or her life. Immediate treatment for resulting issues can be incredibly expensive – and the lifetime cost of caring for a child with serious physical or cognitive limitations can be exorbitant. You and your family should simply not have to put up with the immense burdens of a medical professional’s negligence on your own.
