How can I prove negligence for a birth injury?

When couples are expecting a newborn, it is an emotional time in their lives. They can be happy that they are finally bringing a baby into this world. They may be excited to be new parents. These couples spend time making sure the baby’s nursery is perfect. They want to pick out the perfect name for the baby, too. Throughout this time, they are debating whether or not the baby will be a boy or a girl. They may even decide to find out the gender in order to focus on picking out the baby’s name and deciding what outfits to buy. Although this is a happy and exciting time in their lives, new parents often worry about the uncertainty ahead. They want to ensure that they have a healthy baby. Pregnant moms can do all they can while pregnant to make sure that their baby is born healthy. Dads can provide the best environment possible to create a healthy atmosphere while their partner is pregnant. All of this preparation is what parents expect before their baby is born.

As pregnant women attend doctors’ appointments throughout their pregnancy, they get glimpses at their soon-to-be newborn baby. During the course of their pregnancy, they put their trust in doctors to monitor their baby’s health. However, sometimes things can go wrong during the birth of a baby. Doctors are educated individuals who practice a respectable profession, but they are able to make mistakes, too. If you believe that your healthcare professional made a mistake during your child’s birth, contact us for a consultation.

What do birth injuries consist of?

Birth injuries can cover a range of injuries. These can include Erb’s palsy, cerebral palsy, facial paralysis, spinal cord injuries and more. Medical professionals should be held accountable for their actions when it results in a birth injury. Your child is a top priority and they should be treated like one.

These cases can involve medical negligence from a healthcare professional.
