A doctor's mistake could affect your child's future

Welcoming a new baby into the family is a happy experience and one to which numerous mothers throughout Maryland look forward to each year. In general, medical personnel will work hard to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible and that you and your baby receive the care you require. However, it is a sad fact that not every birth goes as well as it should, and some infants are left with birth injuries that can affect their development and even endanger their lives.

Some of these injuries are unavoidable. However, others are caused by the negligence or error of medical professionals. Mistakes like using excessive forceps pressure, failure to recognize the need for a caesarean, or even prescribing inappropriate medication during your pregnancy can all harm your baby. These injuries could leave your child in need of long-term medical care and could reduce their overall quality of life.

As this video on medical malpractice explains, it is important to act quickly if you suspect your child has been harmed as a result of a medical professional's negligence. This is because there is often a limited window, known as a statute of limitations, during which you are able to file your claim.

Of course, your first step must be to ensure that your child is receiving the medical attention he or she needs. However, you might then benefit from the advice and support of an attorney. It can be emotionally exhausting coming to terms with your child's injuries, especially when also dealing with legal matters. However, your attorney may be able to guide your through the process and help you to pursue the justice and compensation that you and your child deserve.
