Seeking Compensation For A Newborn Brain Injury
Treatment of infant brain damage or traumatic brain injury can leave families struggling with the cost of surgeries, occupational and physical therapy, medication, rehabilitative services, home health care, special schooling and other care needed for their children. If your child’s brain damage occurred because a physician or health care provider was negligent in failing to diagnose a problem, failing to properly monitor your baby during or after delivery or took inappropriate action during the delivery process, you’ll need the help of an experienced birth injury attorney.
