Welcoming a baby into the world is typically an exciting and joyful experience for parents in Texas and throughout the United States. Sadly, however, medical negligence plagues many hospitals and birthing centers, placing moms at risk for labor and delivery mishaps that place their infants at risk for birth injury. Many birth injuries result in partial or full permanent disability, leaving parents unprepared to meet the exorbitant expenses often associated with the care necessary to help their children.
Recovering from the emotional trauma of a birth injury is difficult enough without being overwhelmed by financial burdens. Yet, that is exactly what many families experience as they do their best to provide the best care possible for their babies who were injured by doctors’ errors or other medical negligence. In such circumstances, it often helps to reach out for support, which may include assistance from other family members and friends, faith leaders in one’s community or even an experienced personal injury attorney.
An attorney possesses clear understanding of applicable laws that govern medical malpractice issues. When a parent files a claim on behalf of an injured child, the burden of proof rests with the plaintiff. An attorney can enlist third party testimony to help substantiate a claim.
