The birth of your child should be one of the most important and celebrated moments in your family’s life. However, a birth injury can instead cause your child and family unforeseen pain and loss. When you suspect that your infant has been harmed during birth because of the negligence of medical professionals, there are important steps you can take to protect your child and your legal case.
Seek Medical Help for Your Child
The first priority is always your baby’s well-being. If you suspect that your infant is injured, seek out medical care immediately. Diagnosing and treating birth injuries is time sensitive. Many injuries will worsen the longer they are left untreated.
Consult an Experienced Attorney
Whether you want to pursue a legal case for your child’s injuries is a question you can only answer after gathering the relevant facts and consulting with an experienced birth injury attorney.
Birth injuries, such as cerebral palsy, can necessitate lifelong care, leaving a family with not only the medical expenses of the initial injury but also a future filled with expenses for an injured child.
