The birth of a new baby should be one of the most joyous moments in our lives. But when something goes wrong due to medical negligence or error and the baby suffers a birth injury, then that joy can be replaced by worry and anger. If your child has suffered a birth trauma incident that leads to a serious condition, then you will be concerned about the medical treatment and personal care your infant will need, possibly for the rest of its life.
Hiring a medical malpractice attorney is not just about holding those responsible to account. The primary reason to pursue a claim is to ensure that all medical and care needs of the child will be met and that it will have the best possible quality of life.
Many birth injuries will result in conditions which may have lifelong effects. Oxygen deprivation can lead to traumatic brain injuries or conditions such as ADHD or cerebral palsy. In extreme cases, wrongful death may occur too. If medical staff are over-physical during delivery or use forceps improperly, it can cause spinal cord injuries that may include partial or complete paralysis.
There are many different types of personal injuries that may occur as a result of birth trauma and these can have a profound effect on victims and their families. Future costs will not only include actual medical treatment but also the possible need for specialized personal care and education and adaptations to your home.
Having a competent and experienced personal injury lawyer help fight your case can make a major difference. In many cases, injury claims may never reach court and your personal injury attorney will face complicated negotiations with the insurance company to reach a fair and just settlement. This type of case can often be intricate and the defendant will often want to settle out of court. The super lawyers from Cochran, Kroll & Associates will do everything they can to ensure the most positive outcome.
