One of the most memorable experiences for a mother is the birth of her child. Many women get to live this experience without any abnormal occurrences. For some women, the birth of their child is one that is full of bad memories that cast a shadow on the experience. Those bad memories might be the result of medical malpractice leading to birth injuries of their babies.
We know that no parent wants to think about his or her precious baby being injured at birth because of something that could have been prevented. We know that the thought of your baby’s entire life being altered because of medical malpractice is a thought that makes you angry. We can help you hold the medical staff members responsible for your baby’s injuries accountable for their actions.
One of the most important things you can do from a legal perspective if your baby was injured during birth is to have your case evaluated. Looking into the circumstances of your case might provide clues about what happened and what could have been done differently. This information can often provide the basis for a medical malpractice claim.
If your child suffered from Erb’s palsy, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, umbilical cord compression or any other injury at birth, we can help you to learn your options for seeking compensation. While that compensation won’t change what happened to your child, it can often help to cover the medical expenses associated with the care of the child. It might also help you ensure that your child has the care he or she needs.
