When Should You Consult With A Birth Injury Attorney?

Before a child is born, there’s a great hope and wish for the baby to be born healthy and for the childbirth to be without any complications. Unfortunately, injuries do happen during birth.It can be devastating to learn that many of these birth injuries are serious and can lead to irreversible mental and/or physical disabilities.Naturally, parents want to know what went wrong, especially when the pregnancy seemed normal. Starting the process of a birth injury lawsuit can bring answers to your questions.It is painful to find out that many of these birth injuries were caused by inadequate or negligent care by a health care provider and could have been prevented.A medical mistake can result in a range of birth injuries.The most serious birth injuries are injuries to the brain - caused by oxygen deprivation or bleeding inside the brain from delivery trauma . These often result in Cerebral Palsy. Other severe injuries include Brachial Plexus injuries. Among the list of birth injuries are also temporary paralysis, a fractured arm, or a fractured collarbone.If your child was born with Cerebral Palsy, or has suffered a Brachial Plexus injury (such as Erb’s Palsy or Klumpke’s Palsy), it may have been caused by mistakes made by doctors or other medical professionals during the delivery process.As the unfortunate victim of medical malpractice, your child may need a lifelong special medical care, which also means large hospital bills. Not only is this emotionally and psychologically difficult time for you and your family, but it can also be financially and technically close to unmanageable.At a trying time like this, it can be extremely helpful to have the birth injury lawyer on your side.The very first thing to determine is what went wrong and why.
