Birth Injury Attorney Serving Visalia
A negligent nurse or doctor can turn an otherwise joyous event into a tragedy. We put our trust into medical practitioners and they have a duty to provide us with adequate care. When they do not, a medical malpractice case must be carried out. Birth injury is a type of medical malpractice case, and requires a skilled malpractice lawyer on an immediate basis. Medical malpractice laws are complex, and it is best to have a skilled Visalia personal injury attorney to represent you who can provide the proper evidence that you were in fact damaged due to the substandard care of a medical practitioner.
About Birth Injuries
The birthing process is a very stressful time for a mother and baby; they should be given the best care possible. When a doctor fails to respond to the distress of the mother, it can injure both, and is grounds for a medical malpractice case. In such an instance, you need to have an attorney who is knowledgeable in the science behind the birth process as well as the types of injuries that can result from an improper level of care. At this difficult time, the legal team at Pacific Attorney Group is compassionate and dedicated to assisting in the case and fighting for the best interests of the injured infant and the parents in the case. Contact a birth injury attorney today for a consultation regarding your birth injury case.
Injuries which may be sustained by the child during birth are as follows:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Swelling of the scalp
- Facial paralysis
- Brain injury
It can occur that medical malpractice is the sole cause of an injury, and it may otherwise not have occurred at all, such as in the case of unnecessary forceps marks. It may also simply compound an injury which may or may not have occurred otherwise. In either case, a claim could possibly be filed against the doctor, nurse, or hospital. Pacific Attorney Group will fight for the quality of life of mother and child in all birth injury cases taken on.
