Being given the news that your child has suffered a birth injury may be one of the worst news a parent will ever hear. And when you discover that the injury was caused by medical negligence or errors, then your initial upset may be replaced with anger. With around 28,000 birth injuries occurring in the U.S. every year, this is a very real issue and can often lead to severe conditions that will affect the child’s entire life.
This area of law can be a difficult one to pursue a claim in and it is almost certain that you will need a good firm of personal injury lawyers representing you. Cochran, Kroll & Associates have been serving Livonia for many years now and would be the best choice to fight your personal injury case.
While we expect the highest duty of care from medical professionals, we also recognize that, for whatever reason, negligence and errors do happen. But recognizing it is a fact does not mean that we should not pursue those responsible, especially when you take into consideration the potential medical and care costs you may face for your child.
Most errors and negligence leading to birth injuries happen during the labor and delivery process. Medical staff failing to notice that the fetus is in distress, delaying delivery or a C-section, or staff being over physical during delivery (including overuse of forceps) can all lead to birth trauma. If for any reason the fetus suffers oxygen deprivation, then it can lead to conditions such as cerebral palsy, more severe brain damage, or even wrongful death.
