We place a lot of trust in medical professionals. After all, it is viewed that with their chosen profession, they have a duty of care towards their patients to provide only the very best treatment. But sometimes, even the most dedicated professional gets things wrong and makes mistakes. And when those mistakes lead to birth injuries or wrongful death, then the family can be devastated beyond belief.
If such a tragedy happens to your family, you want to know that there are experienced personal injury lawyers serving Clinton who will represent you in any medical malpractice claim and fight for the compensation you and your child deserves.
The potential for something to go wrong begins as soon as you commence any form of prenatal care. If your physician fails to spot signs of potential dangers, then they may be liable for any birth injuries suffered. Where medication you were using causes some form of birth injury, then the pharmacist or even the drug manufacturer may be found to have been at fault and could face a products liability case. But most liability in medical malpractice cases lies with the attending doctor or other staff during the labor and delivery process.
With around 7 in every 1,000 births suffering some form of birth injury, it is little surprise that there are so many different types of error. The birth injuries sustained during labor and delivery can lead to serious conditions such as cerebral palsy or brain damage. Many of the resulting conditions may need lifelong medical treatment as well as specialized personal care. There may even be cases where you need to adapt your home, your vehicle, or have to buy specialized equipment to care for your child.
When that is the case. You want a law firm on your side that represents clients at every stage of any personal injury case. A personal injury attorney with years of experience who has in-depth knowledge of any legal issue that may arise. Our super lawyers are your ideal choice and will work closely with you to ensure a positive outcome.
