New mothers might suffer from serious birth injuries

On Behalf of | Aug 24, 2017 | Birth Injuries

Many people think of birth injuries as those that impact the baby; however, as we’ve discussed in previous blogs like last week’s blog, there are also birth injuries that impact the mother. These birth injuries are very serious. In some cases, the mother might not be able to care for her child without help because of her injury. This is simply inexcusable.

We understand that your focus right now might be on trying to do the best you can for your family. If you are unable to work because of the birth injury, you might hate to think about the full financial weight of your newly expanded family falling on your spouse. There is a possible way for you to avoid this occurring.

You might decide that you are going to seek compensation for the injury. When you decide to take this step, we need to evaluate the case and come up with a plan. This includes looking into what parties we need to hold responsible for the damages. This might include doctors, nurses and medical facilities.

Another point to consider is what damages you suffered. Medical bills, lost income and other damages might all be part of your case. We also need to figure out how much money this injury caused you. This includes money you’ve already spent and money you will spend in the future.

It can also include other types of damages, such as pain and suffering, that might up the settlement amount that you need to seek. We must consider the unique points in your case to determine these since no two birth injury cases are identical.
