Determining The Best Course Of Action For A Birth Injury

Even when the highest level of medical care is given, some birth injuries are unavoidable. If your baby suffered a major injury at birth because of the negligence of your medical staff or the facility where you gave birth, your case may qualify as medical malpractice. Many defendants feel they would rather settle a medical malpractice case than go through a costly and time consuming trial. But there is a lot to consider before making this decision including: lost wages, cost of ongoing medical care, specialized equipment that may be needed in the future, and other financial burdens that may be ongoing because of the birth injury. Working with an experienced lawyer, we will help you sort through the details of your case and proceed with a course of action that is of greatest benefit to you.

Our knowledgeable lawyers will sit down with you to create a “life care plan”. This plan will account for all of the costs related to the injury, including any future costs anticipated. The total costs that are calculated as part of your life care plan will be the bulk of the settlement amount you receive, but you may also pursue compensation for damages that are non-monetary, such as loss of quality of life and pain and suffering.
