Legal recourse following a birth injury

You did everything right during your pregnancy. When it came time to deliver, you were beyond thrilled to meet your beautiful baby. Then, the complications started and your baby ended up suffering a birth injury that left him or her permanently disabled. Sadly, this is something that a number of parents in Louisiana experience every year. Under some circumstances, they may have legal recourse.

Child birth can be so unpredictable. Things can be going great one minute and then go down hill the next. Numerous birth injuries happen as a result of the actions taken by medical professionals when things take that bad turn. The wrong action or even inaction can have disastrous results for mom and baby.

Determining if a birth injury resulted from medical negligence can be quite challenging. It requires a thorough review of medical records and seeking opinions of qualified health care professionals. It can take time to gather all the evidence necessary in order to determine if pursuing legal actions is in one's best interests. To learn more about what it takes to pursue a birth injury lawsuit, please take a moment and visit our firm's website.

When bringing a child into the world, you have so many hopes and dreams for his or her future. When a child suffers disability due to medical negligence during labor and delivery, those hope and dreams can quickly fly out the window and you are forced into survival mode. Raising a child who has a disability can be emotionally, physically and financially draining. According to the laws of Louisiana, if theĀ birth injury was the result of malpractice you may seek compensation for any current and future damages by filing a civil claim against those individuals and the medical facility responsible.
