Think you have a birth injury claim?

You may have just found out that your child has a birth injury. There are no words that can describe the despair and fear that come with this revelation. It is also very likely that investigating the hospital and medical team for evidence of malpractice is the furthest thing from your mind. However, it is important that you don't wait too long. If your child was injured as a result of a mistake by the medical team, then you will need all the extra help you can get to make sure that your child has the resources he or she needs.

One of the most critical actions you can take to secure your child's rights is to properly investigate the hospital and medical team. A knowledgeable investigator will know the questions to ask to get the answers you need. For example, the investigator can ask whether or not proper procedure was followed during the attempts to resuscitate your child or if he or she was rushed to the neo-natal intensive care unit. You probably need to know if a CT scan or MRI revealed any brain injuries, and if none were found, how long ago the scans were taken. There are myriad questions that must be resolved to secure your child's future.

Don't make the mistake of believing that you can rely on governmental assistance. Depending upon how injured your child was and how they develop into the future, the government probably will not provide you with enough assistance to care for your child. This means that you will need to take the reins to protect your child's future.

Just because this may be your first foray into the legal field does not mean you must do it all on your own. If you believe that your child may have suffered from birth injuries, then you may want to speak to a birth injury expert. This claim isn't about proving who was wrong or holding someone responsible. The primary goal is to ensure proper care for your child.
