When a newborn baby sustains an injury, what should be a joyful event is turned into a stressful and traumatic time for the parents and family. Some birth injuries occur as a result of a physician’s failure to act in an appropriate and timely manner before, during, or immediately after the birth of the baby. Compensation for a birth injury can sometimes be obtained by a lawyer if it can be proved that the injury was caused by the negligence of a medical professional. If a physician does not react properly to the conditions of the birth by failing to identify pregnancy disorders, failing to perform a necessary caesarean section, using medical equipment improperly, or by making other errors, our birth injury attorneys may be able to seek compensation.
In order to recover damages in a case involving medical malpractice, you must be able to prove that the medical professional failed to adhere to the proper standard of medical care that someone in a similar occupation would provide. Due to the high technicality of birth injury cases, it is vital that your birth injury lawyer work with a team of medical experts to form a solid case. At Martineau & Johnson Injury Law, our birth injury lawyers have extensive litigation experience and work closely with medical health professionals to investigate your case, establish whether the treating physician deviated from the acceptable standard of medical care, and ensure that the physician is held liable for the injury inflicted.
There is a wide range of tragic injuries and permanent disabilities from a birth injury, including:
- Brain Damage
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb’s Palsy
- Speech Impediments
- Learning Disabilities
- Skeletal Deformities
The effect of these injuries extends beyond the birth and immediate treatment. Emotional distress, expensive medical bills, and specialized care for the child can all be lifelong consequences of such tragedies. Because birth injuries are so emotionally and financially exhaustive for parents, our birth injury attorneys can be an invaluable resource to you and your family during this time of need.
