How Do Birth Injury Claims Work?
Childbirth is inherently dangerous, both for mothers and their newborns. As a result, medical professionals often aid the birthing process through the use of regional anesthesia, medication, and even surgical procedures like C-sections. Unfortunately, even the most experienced medical staff can make mistakes when delivering a newborn. These instances of negligence and malpractice can result in debilitating injuries for infants, such as brain or spinal cord damage, necessitating lifelong special care.
Families of children with birth defects often feel hopeless and powerless. Raising a healthy child is already expensive without the additional costs of rehabilitation, therapy, and other daily care. Thankfully, your family can recover financial compensation for birth injuries by filing a claim or lawsuit against the negligent party, which is often the hospital/clinic and the medical professionals under their employ.
To successfully file a claim and receive compensation, your family must prove that the involved medical staff were partly or fully at fault for your child’s birth injury. Florida law also puts a time limit (also known as a statute of limitations) on these medical malpractice claims. Working with an experienced birth injury attorney is the best way to file your claim as quickly as possible—and hold the people responsible for your child’s injuries accountable.
