Birth Injury Lawyer in Flint

The arrival of a new baby should be a time of joy and celebration. But what happens when something goes wrong? When medical negligence leads to severe birth injuries or even wrongful death? That joy is replaced by concern, worry, and stress. And while our first thoughts are on the health and well being of our child, at some stage we will need to think about mounting medical bills, about planning future care and medical treatment, and about caring for the child for the rest of its life when needed.

When medical professionals fail in their duty of care, the effects can be devastating to all concerned. If your child has suffered as a result of medical malpractice, then you want personal injury attorneys representing you who have experience of personal injury law as it pertains to the area around medical negligence.

Lifelong Effects

While some birth injuries can be relatively minor and may only need limited treatment, many more can be severe and may have lifelong effects on the child. Where an infant has brain damage, cerebral palsy, or spinal cord injury, then they will need intensive personal care and medical treatment for all of their lives. And the need for close personal care often means that families face a choice of either one parent giving up work or having to pay for professional care. And all that medical treatment and specialized care come at a high financial cost too.

Although some birth injuries may be caused by genetic factors and thus not subject to a medical malpractice suit, the vast majority are due to some level of medical negligence at some stage of pregnancy. Most birth injuries occur as a result of errors during labor and delivery, including staff failing to notice the baby is in distress, poor use of instruments, over physical delivery, and other causes.

If the fetus is deprived of oxygen, this can cause serious repercussions. This can happen in several ways, such as if the umbilical cord gets wrapped around the baby’s neck. Lack of oxygen can lead to brain damage and to conditions such as ADHD or cerebral palsy.
