The first and most important issue to deal with after a birth injury is caring for the health of the baby and the mother. Get advice, treatment, and support from medical professionals you trust, and do not be afraid to get a second opinion. Also, be sure to take advantage of counseling and therapy options if you or your family needs help processing what happened.
After the health and well-being of your family is under control, you may wish to speak with a Dallas birth injury lawyer. A medical malpractice attorney can help you better understand what caused your baby’s injury, collect the evidence of the case, and enumerate your legal options if you choose to take action.
A birth injury is traumatic for the entire family – and one mistake in labor and delivery can lead to a lifetime of medical costs, nursing care, disability, and therapy. If you believe that your child’s injury was caused by negligence, you owe it to your family to ensure that the person or hospital responsible for your child’s injury pays for the consequences of their negligent actions. If someone else caused the injury, why should the financial burden be placed on your family?
