California Medical Malpractice Attorney

Medical Malpractice and Your Baby

Medical malpractice is a type of personal injury situation in which a doctor, nurse, therapist, pharmacist or other health care professional is negligent in the care that they provide, resulting in illness, injury or a wrongful death. It occurs when standard and accepted medical practices are not adhered to. An example is a birth injury, such as cerebral palsy, a spinal cord injury, shoulder dystocia or high bilirubin levels leading to severe jaundice. These can all be the result of inadequate, careless or non-standard care of a newborn and the consequences in terms of financial stress and human suffering are high.

When medical malpractice has caused injury to your baby, compensation should be awarded to offset the financial burdens that will be part of taking good care of your child. This may include not only current hospital and medical expenses, but loss of wages due to having to care for your child. Future care of your child, as well as the emotional losses suffered should be taken into consideration as well. When seeking full compensation for the results of medical malpractice, use a proven California birth injury lawyer from our firm.

Birth Injury Lawyer in California

In order to prove your case, the law requires that we show that a duty existed between you and your doctor when treatment was provided and that the duty was not carried out. It must be proven that the injury to your baby was the direct result of negligence by the parties named in the claim. That damages were suffered as a result of the negligence must be proven as well. Thorough investigation and a determination to get at the truth are vital elements to achieving a favorable outcome in your case.
