Not All Birth Injuries Happen in Hospitals
Sometimes the causes of birth injuries are unsafe working conditions, and not negligence or errors on the part of medical providers. In the mid-2000s, exposure to dangerous pesticides left many migrant tomato farmers with injured children suffering missing limbs and other deformities. These families, many undocumented and living in poverty, were left with little recourse.
If your baby was injured due to pesticide exposure or other workplace conditions, you have a right to hold the responsible party accountable and fight for full compensation. Please contact the experienced Florida birth injury attorneys at Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter today to see that your family gets the justice you deserve.
Thanks to grass-roots organization by groups like the Coalition of Immokalee Farmworkers and successful birth injury claims brought against the agricultural producers, many of these pesticides have been outlawed in Florida. Unfortunately, workers rights and safety issues continue, and new pesticides often present new unknown risks. The children injured by unsafe agricultural practices of the 2000s will require a lifetime of expensive medical care, but hopefully others will be spared the same fate.
