A birth injury can blindside the parents of the injured child. Many don’t know what to do afterward and have many birth injury legal questions. This is why it is important to seek the counsel of a knowledgeable complex litigation firm like The Michael Brady Lynch Firm. We have over 20 years of experience helping the injured. We will let you know the steps to take and work with you through the legal process.

Taking Legal Action

Nicu BabyFor many, they do not want to point blame at the doctor or other medical professionals. However, without coming forward, that doctor’s negligence could injure another baby. Plus, birth injuries are expensive and can be lifelong. The funding received from legal action could help cover the cost of wheelchairs and in-home help. These expenses could total over a million dollars. A legal claim helps defray these costs. This is why it is important to start any action immediately.

Protect Yourself As Soon As Possible

Contact us as soon as you can after a birth injury. This is because the hospital knows the child is injured and will immediately send a representation or insurance specialist to speak to you. These well-practiced people try to push grieving parents into settlements. The amount may seem large at first, but it usually doesn’t cover all the medical costs your child will need. Your birth injury attorney should help be a mediator and get you the compensation you deserve.

Plus, it is hard to navigate these claims while caring for an injured child. We will try to make this process as smooth as possible even if your claim needs to go to trial. Some trials take years. However, everything depends on your individual case. The best chance is compiling important documents as soon as possible.

Gathering Documentation

After a birth injury, collect all the documentation from the hospital or medical staff. Even if the paperwork doesn’t involve the person responsible for the malpractice. This includes all pregnancy paperwork as well. Then, write down all the names of the medical personnel you had contact with. A timeline of events is helpful as well. This will help if you need to give a deposition. A deposition is the facts of the case. It is the exact events of what happened leading up to the injury. Some examples would be the time of labor, any doubts about the medical staff during labor, what happened during labor, did anyone act like something was wrong, or when did you notice something was wrong with your child. The most important aspect is if anyone admitted guilt. The facts for the deposition should have as many factual details as possible. A knowledgeable attorney will help guide you.

Contact a Knowledgeable Complex Litigation Attorney

BillsBirth injuries are costly. You could receive compensation for your baby’s injuries. This includes medical care, hospital visits, medication, physical therapy, special-needs equipment and education, counseling, psychological services, and pain and suffering. In many states, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims is two years from the date of the injury or from the date when the patient knew or should have known that the injury occurred. This is why it is important to act quickly and chose a knowledgeable complex litigation attorney.
