You can seek help if your child suffers from birth injuries

| Oct 14, 2019 | Birth Injuries

Birth injuries are hard to imagine. After all, a young child has just come into the world, and the first thing they have to deal with is an injury that could significantly impact their entire life.

Birth injuries happen for many reasons, from pulling too hard on a child as they leave the birth canal to waiting too long to perform a C-section. No matter what the cause is, if the medical professionals working with a patient were negligent or delayed treatment, they should be held liable for the child’s injuries.

What should you do if your child suffers a preventable birth injury?

One of the first things to do is to reach out to your attorney to discuss what happened. While your child is likely receiving care for the injuries they suffered, you mustn’t allow negligence or mistreatment to go unchecked. You have a right to pursue a claim against any medical professional who causes harm to your child as a result of not meeting the established medical standards of the medical community.

Your attorney will talk to you about the case. You may want to seek second opinions from other medical providers in the field to see if your situation is unusual. Not all birth injuries will be a result of negligence or inaction, but if your medical provider did not take the necessary steps to protect you or your child during your labor, while you were pregnant or after you gave birth, it’s your right to seek action against them.
