All any expectant parent wants is for their child to be born healthy. Regrettably, sometimes the process of giving birth can cause injuries to a child. Sometimes, birth injuries occur, and there’s nothing anyone could have done to prevent them. Conversely, sometimes birth injuries are the direct result of a doctor’s negligence.
If you suspect that your child’s birth injury could have been avoided if your child had received proper care from the doctor, you might consider suing for your child’s birth injury. An attorney can help you to determine whether you have a claim. Filing a claim against the medical provider responsible for your child’s injuries could bring you justice and financial compensation.
Most doctors try to do everything in their power to prevent a child from being harmed during birth. However, there will always be some doctors who cut corners or who make careless mistakes that cause others harm. If your child was injured during birth and you believe your doctor was to blame, you will need to be able to prove it.
Medical negligence cases are a little more complex than other types of injury claims. You will probably need a medical expert to examine your case to determine that medical malpractice occurred. The medical professional can help you determine whether a different doctor under the same set of circumstances would have made the same mistakes your child’s doctor did.
Below, here are some examples of medical negligence that could lead to birth injuries.
If your child sustained a birth injury, you might be dealing with many negative life issues as a result. For instance, your child might need medical care to treat the birth injury. You might be paying for caregiving services because your child’s development was impacted by the injury. In addition, your child could be suffering with pain caused by their injury.
You will also be dealing with many negative ramifications of the birth injury. You will likely be dealing with physical and emotional distress. You are probably forced to pay for expenses related to this injury. You might not be able to work and receive an income if the injury requires you to stay home and care for your child.
