What to Know if your Child Has Suffered A Birth Injury

While in most cases, the birth of a child is a joyous event, when errors occur and an infant or mother is harmed, families may be left heart-broken and wondering what to do next. If you believe that the doctors, nurses and other heath care workers involved in the delivery may have made mistakes, its important to speak to a California birth injury lawyer right away.

An experienced birth injury attorney can begin an investigation into all of the factors surrounding a particular incident. This includes determining whether each health care provider performed his or her job with the appropriate "standard of care". Health care workers have a duty to perform his or her job in the way that similar situated doctors, nurses or staff would be expected to act. This standard is typically established through expert testimony. Where the failure to act in accordance with this standard leads to harm, it may be possible to file a medical malpractice claim.

When a child suffers a birth injury, the consequences may last a lifetime, requiring significant costs of care for medical treatment, therapy and rehabilitation. A skilled birth injury law firm can help families seek compensation to off set these potentially exorbitant costs.

For more information or if you believe that a loved one has been harmed by a medical mistake, please contact the compassionate and experienced California birth injury lawyers at Bostwick & Peterson LLP for an immediate consultation.
