On Behalf of | May 31, 2019 | Birth Injuries

Going to a hospital or birthing center to welcome a new addition to the family should be a joyful time. It shouldn’t be one that leaves you with sadness and questions about what went wrong. Unfortunately, there are some instances in which a mom and newborn aren’t cared for properly. This can lead to harm being done to one or both of them. This is a tragic situation that likely could have been prevented if the medical staff had followed proper protocol.

We know that when you are the one that is dealing with a birth injury, there are some important questions that you want to have answered. One of these might be what happened that caused the situation that resulted in you or your precious baby being harmed. Another might be what recourse you have for the matter. You may also want to know what type of financial assistance you qualify for when this type of situation is going to lead to more medical care than what would have been necessary without the injury.

One option that you have is to seek compensation. This is done through a medical malpractice lawsuit, which seeks to hold the medical professionals accountable for their actions while providing you with the financial backing to cover medical bills and other related expenses.

We know that this isn’t really an easy decision for you to make. You should consider your options right away because there are time limits that apply to these cases. Once your time for filing compensation has passed, you won’t be able to do anything to recover your financial losses.
