How do you know if your child suffered a birth injury?

It is a terrible thing to discover that your child has suffered an injury. It is even more devastating when that injury was inflicted when your child was born. These injuries are difficult to diagnose because your child is not yet able to communicate the extent and nature of his or her injuries. Instead, you must rely on the expertise of doctors and instinct.

Sometimes injuries can go undiagnosed for weeks or even months. Many of these injuries may not manifest until your child grows older, for example, most brain injuries do not present themselves until your baby grows older.

Time is of the essence when pursuing compensation. You will need the proceeds from a lawsuit or settlement to care for your child. Depending on the extent of your child's injuries, your child could require thousands of dollars of medical care. Most government programs are insufficient to cover all of your child's medical expenses.

If your child suffered an injury during the delivery process, then you may want to speak to an attorney. These injuries are difficult to diagnose and even harder to trace. A lawyer can review the medical records to determine when and how your child was injured. These skills are necessary to identify if your child's injury was related to doctor or hospital negligence. If it was, then your child may be entitled to compensation to pay for his or her medical care and future expenses. A lawyer can help you get the compensation your child needs.
