Giving birth to a baby is an incredible experience. Sometimes delays can cause birth injuries like cerebral palsy. Children born with cerebral palsy have life-long needs that place substantial stress on families. Failure to diagnosis and treat problems during delivery can also lead to death.
The death of a newborn baby is tragic and stunning. When that death appears to have been preventable, it is possible that medical negligence was involved. That is when we start looking at the acts or failure to act of doctors, nurses, and hospital staff.
When a baby is injured or dies as a result of the negligence of a health care provider, families must prepare for life-long loss. Parents have the right to bring a birth injury malpractice claim or perhaps a wrongful death lawsuit. They can seek compensation from those who caused their child’s death. Past and future medical bills and funeral and burial bills are going to add up quickly, and like most families, you will be both emotionally and financially overwhelmed.
