A child's birth injury affects the whole family

If you are one of the numerous parents in Louisiana whose child was injured during the delivery process, you know all too well the impact that event has had on your life. You know full well that the birth injury did not just affect your child's life -- it affected your whole family. You may be entitled to seek compensation for your family's losses as well as for the damages experienced by your child.

Unless a fetus has an underlying medical condition, no one expects to come out of labor and delivery with an injured or sick child. The goal of every parent is to go home with a healthy newborn. Unfortunately, despite advances in medicine, more and more children are suffering birth-related injuries resulting from human error.

As much as people would like to think medical providers are perfect and trained for any and all situations that may arise, they make mistakes. They ignore symptoms, they make poor judgment calls and sometimes they wait until it is too late to take action that would prevent a child from suffering injury during labor and delivery. When negligence is suspected of contributing to a child's injury, you may take legal action against all parties deemed responsible.

Filing a birth injury lawsuit can certainly feel like an intimidating task to parents who are already struggling to adjust to life with an injured child. However, it may be worth your while. Your family has been through a lot because of this and has likely experienced severe financial and emotional losses as a result. An experienced birth injury attorney will have the ability to review your case and help you file the appropriate claims in a Louisiana civil court in an effort to seek relief for your losses.
