Does your child need help?

If you believe that your child suffered an injury during birth, then contacting an attorney is probably the furthest thing from your mind. Don't take this approach. The right attorney and investigator can question your health care provider to determine if there was negligence during the birth of your child, which could have resulted in his or her injuries. This article will review how a law firm can get the answers you deserve and the money you need to care for your child.

Lawyers help people get the money they need to move on and care for their families. Typically, when people win big settlements it isn't because the law was manipulated, it was because there was a serious injury that requires expensive long-term care. Birth injuries, especially brain injuries, could mean that your child may require assisted care for the rest of his or her life. Government programs often do not sufficiently cover the cost of this care, so it is important you get the money from somewhere.

An attorney can question the hospital, doctors and nurses to determine if there was negligence. Often, lawyers will discover that an emergency, but relatively simple cesarean section, could have prevented the injuries. Or sometimes the medical team waited too long to deliver the baby, used improper medication or other causes. These investigations can take weeks or months because of the complexity of health care, but an attorney can find the answer.

You may be hesitant, but health care providers carry insurance that covers claims against them when there is medical malpractice. This isn't about laying blame; it is dealing with the simple fact that you need money to address these injuries.

If you believe that your child may have suffered a birth injury, then you may want to consult with a lawyer as soon as possible. Your claim may be subject to a time limit. You aren't alone in dealing with this new reality. You don't have to do it alone.
