Fighting For Compensation For Children Injured During Birth
The birth of a child is an exciting time, but it is also a precarious time. Everything needs to go well with the delivery to ensure the safety of your child. That is why most people go to great lengths to find a doctor to work with who they trust and with whom they feel comfortable. Even then, mistakes might be made that can injure your child during the delivery process.
If your child was injured during his or her birth, he or she may be facing a future with ongoing medical needs. How do you ensure that your child has the financial resources to provide for the medical care he or she will need in the future? Pursuing compensation now can help provide for your child’s future and help cover the medical expenses you are currently facing.
Common types of birth injury include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Erb’s palsy
Understanding The Medical Records
Medical records can be very complex. Finding the information you need to prove that substandard medical care caused harm can be like looking for a needle in a haystack if you do not have the necessary experience and familiarity with reviewing medical records.
