Birth injuries: Fight for the compensation you need

Birth injuries don't just affect you and your child emotionally; they affect your family, finances, and even the ability to live a normal life. As someone suffering from a negligent act that led to a child's birth injury, you need to know that you have a right to seek out compensation and answers for what went wrong. There's no need for many birth injuries to take place, but a lack of care still can result in injuries that could take a lifetime to overcome.

There are a few ways you can link your child's injuries to his or her care. For instance, if you had to have an emergency C-section because a nurse waited too long to identify that your baby was in distress, you could argue that you were not being monitored properly. Some kinds of injuries, like cerebral palsy, can be caused at birth by injuries during delivery.

If your child suffers from asphyxia or is in distress for too long, he or she could be at risk of injury or death. Doctors and nurses know this, so they should not let a patient stay in an unsafe condition for long.

Another way you may be able to show negligence is if you can prove a medication you were prescribed by your doctor was unsafe for your unborn child. OB-GYN medical professionals should know the medications that are safe for your child, and failing you in that manner could result in birth injuries or defects that require surgeries or result in a life of suffering.

Our website has more information about birth injuries and how to know if you have a claim. You deserve answers, and it's your chance to fight for them.
