Ask any expectant parent and they will tell you that they hope that their soon-to-be newborn child will be healthy. Tragically this isn’t always the case. When a birth injury occurs, the new parents are devastated as they discover the life altering consequences that their child, family, and they themselves now face. In some cases, birth injuries are the result of preventable errors and negligence on the part of doctors, nurses, and other personnel who are present in the delivery room. While no medical professional would purposely cause harm, negligence can result in birth injuries leading to serious and life-long disabilities including bone fractures, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), cerebral palsy, and even death. In some cases, negligence in the delivery can also result in harm to the mother.
Dealing with injuries following childbirth is challenging for families. What was supposed to be a joyful time becomes complicated by the need to seek ongoing medical care and to determine whether negligence did indeed occur. This is where it is important to contact a personal injury lawyer experienced in helping victims of negligence and malpractice to obtain the compensation they deserve.
