If Your Baby Suffered a Birth Injury Because of Negligence, Turnbull, Holcomb & LeMoine Can Help
Medicine has progressed to the point that childbirth is no longer as dangerous an event as it once was where women used to be much more concerned about the health ramifications having a child would entail both for the mother and the newborn. Despite all of this progress, there is still a lot that can go wrong. For every 1,000 children born in the United States, 6 to 8 are born with a birth injury, many of these birth injuries occur due to unforeseeable circumstances and issues that nobody has power over, yet some are the result of negligence on the part of doctors, medical staff, or hospitals.
Newborns and mothers that suffer birth injuries as a result of a doctor’s or similarly liable party’s negligence deserve compensation for the damages they suffer. Birth injuries can be extremely harmful since they can cause permanent health problems for the rest of a child’s life. Holding doctors accountable for negligent behavior is possible by filing a birth injury lawsuit that can get you the compensation you need to cover the severe damages associated with these injuries and help stop similar negligence from harming others.
If your child has suffered a birth injury due to the negligence of a doctor or similarly liable party, contact Turnbull, Holcomb & LeMoine today at (205) 831-5040 or online for a free case evaluation, or to discuss your rights and options further.
Why Should I Hire a Birth Injury Attorney?
Filing a medical malpractice lawsuit over a birth injury is a demanding task even when one is best prepared. To attempt to handle a birth injury lawsuit on your own with no experience, education, or legal resources to call on is how you end up either getting mediocre compensation for a birth injury or none at all.
The process of negotiating a settlement or winning a medical malpractice lawsuit calls for proof that the defendant was negligent and that their negligence caused your injuries. Proving all of this is easier said than done. The negligent party’s insurance company will do everything they legally can to limit the amount of money they pay out to someone that has suffered a birth injury regardless of whether they deserve that compensation or not. They have you at a disadvantage and will exploit that by trying to trick you into taking lowball offers, revealing medical information they have no business knowing, and making statements that can harm your case.
