Was Your Child Injured During Birth?
A lawyer can hold negligent obstetricians accountable
The birth of a child should always be a moment of joy for your family. However, in too many cases, that joy is marred by an injury. While many childbirths lead to minor injuries that resolve themselves without treatment, some injuries at birth lead to more serious medical conditions that require significant treatment for your newborn. And if carelessness or recklessness by a medical professional results in a permanent injury to the baby, your child's life could be changed forever.
When birth injuries are caused by a doctor's or nurse's negligence, the family is entitled to recourse through a medical malpractice claim. These types of cases are about much more than money. Funds from a settlement or verdict can be used to pay for your child's long-term care and any other accommodations needed as a result of the injury. Your case may result in positive changes that ensure other families don't have to go through what your family went through. That's why it's so important to have an experienced birth injury attorney handling your case.
