The cause of a birth injury matters in claims for compensation

Birth defects are medical conditions that might have been prevented. In many cases, these injuries can affect entire families. The baby is affected because he or she has to live with the pain, health, life and social effects of the accident. The parents are affected because they have to care for the child and determine how to meet the child's needs. Siblings of the child might be affected because the special needs child requires more of the parents' energy and resources.

We know that all of this can be devastating for everyone involved. While there isn't anything that we can do about the medical aspects of the baby's injury, we can help you to seek compensation if the birth injury was caused by medical negligence or malpractice. Seeking compensation would help to reduce the financial difficulties that you and your family face because of the injury.

It is important that we take a look into your case to determine what caused the birth injury. If the answer is that the birth injury was caused by natural factors, a claim for compensation wouldn't necessarily be appropriate. In other cases, such as those that involve care that didn't meet a minimum standard of care, claims for compensation are likely appropriate.

Birth injury cases are often very complex. In many cases, you have to draw on the knowledge of experts in the field. We can help you to put all of that together so that you can wage your battle against the parties who should be held accountable for the injuries to your child.
