Why Do You Need Birth Injury Lawyer and How They Can Help You?
October 2, 2019 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Childbirth injury is inexcusable. From the moment a child is conceived to the time the delivery is done, it is the responsibility of the doctors to see that the child is delivered with the utmost care and is healthy.
However, sometimes, things may not go smoothly, and the birth of the baby, which is supposed to be the most joyous event can turn out to be distressing. Research says that for every 1000 deliveries done in the US, approximately 5 experience birth-related injuries. The reasons for this vary from baby not getting necessary oxygen at the time of labor to the doctor being lethargic in using the medical devices.
What Is Birth Injury?
A birth injury refers to the physical injury that a baby suffered from during or soon after the birthing process. A common misconception is that the birth injury is a defect. Birth injuries are primarily caused by medical negligence. Few birth injuries can be mild and can be overcome by little care while a few can be quite severe and some can turn out to be life-threatening.
Some of the common birth injuries are:
- Bruising and swelling of the head
- Bleeding in cranial bones
- Facial nerve injury that happens because of labor pressure on baby’s face
- Fracture of collarbone or clavicle
- Breaking off small blood vessels especially in baby’s eyes
Birth injury types vary from child to child. Every kid has different symptoms and reactions to the injury.
A birth injury can prove to be very devastating. You would be quite uncertain about how the future of your kid would be, the medical care a small kid would be at the disposal of and the quality of life they might have to lead. In this scenario, while a legal lawsuit is something that never crossed your mind, it is of utmost importance that you choose a good birth injury lawyer who can help you get justice.
Here are a few reasons why you should opt for a birth injury lawyer:
- Birth Injury cases are more complex and more severe than personal injury cases. Understanding medical intricacies in detail and a professional manner is required. Thus having a birth injury lawyer would be a good step towards getting a quality representation of the issue that you and your child are facing.
- Understanding where you stand legally is something that only a person who is a professional can explain to you in detail. Again, this requires absolute clarity, and no one other than a birth injury lawyer can do so.
- You need to build a strong case and prove a point as to how exactly your child suffered from a birth injury. For this, you need a lawyer whose expertise and experience can help you in building the case successfully.
What are the factors to consider while choosing an attorney:
- The Legal Focus of the Firm
It is given that handling birth injury cases are a sensitive job and also a complicated one. The chosen attorney would need to understand the medical intricacies that arise typically in your case. Hence it is necessary that the law firm you opt for has enough experience and is professionally qualified to handle the same.
- Experience with the Birth Injury
The many forms of birth injury have unique characteristics that should be understood and considered by the attorney. Thus always ask the lawyer you want to choose how much knowledge and experience he has with that particular injury which your child is suffering from.
- Work Experience with Medical Professionals
Being a Birth Injury Lawyer is not a medical profession, but it requires working closely with Medical professionals like physicians and nurses. The lawyer would need to communicate with the medical professionals on various issues and check medical records to get insights as to how and what went wrong.
- Check the record of Settlements and Verdicts
>While past results do not give any guarantee as to what would the outcome of your case be, it plainly says a lot about the ability of the attorney. Do check the record of settlements and verdicts of the lawyer you wish to hire so that you get an idea about his level of expertise and the experience he has.
