Birth Injury Questions
Did Medical Mistakes Cause My Child’s Injuries?
Not every injury, illness, or condition suffered by an infant is the result of malpractice. Problems occur even in cases where doctors and nurses do everything right. Some injuries, however, are more likely to result from medical negligence than others. If your child suffered harm during birth, it is worthwhile to consult a lawyer about a possible injury claim.
What Does Negligence Look Like In The Birth Process?
This can be tricky for a layperson to identify. Medical malpractice occurs when a health care professional fails to live up to the accepted standard of practice. That standard is specific to the procedure and area of practice under discussion. One child’s birth can bear little resemblance to the next, depending on several factors. Proving medical negligence almost always requires expert testimony regarding what a doctor or nurse should do in a given situation. It is complex and requires an experienced eye to identify.
What Are Some Common Birth Injuries?
Fortunately, even the most common birth injuries are relatively rare. Approximately five of every 1,000 babies born in this country suffer an injury during birth. The most common injuries are minor and include bruising, caput succedaneum (temporary swelling of scalp tissue), and subconjunctival hemorrhage (broken blood vessels in the eye). More serious injuries include Erb’s palsy, bone fractures, cerebral palsy, and cerebral ischemia. Any of these injuries can occur in situations where no malpractice occurred, but they also bear further investigation.
How Will A Birth Injury Lawsuit Help Me?
Injuries to an infant can lead to massive medical expenses and lifelong disabilities. A lawsuit can provide access to the compensation you need to help cover the many expenses tied to treating your child. In addition, many families simply feel better knowing the truth about what happened to their children. Lawsuits help expose outdated practices, negligent doctors and nurses, and unsafe hospitals. You may be responsible for protecting the next family from experiencing the same trauma you suffered.
Can I Afford A Lawyer To Help Me With A Birth Injury Case?
Most attorneys handle these cases on a contingency fee basis. That means your attorney is paid a percentage of the money he or she recovers for you. The percentage is capped by Florida law. You should contact our birth injury attorney as soon as possible to learn more about your rights and preserve your right to seek compensation.
