New parents who are just celebrating the birth of their child can be quickly devastated by reports that their son or daughter became injured during birth and now has a potentially lifelong disability.
For the parents, the details of the injury may be hazy. After all, without medical training, how can a person really know what caused the injury and whether that injury was avoidable? In fact, we at Latona Law believe that some parents may be inclined simply to think of all birth injuries as inherited conditions or complications that no one could have prevented.
The danger of this kind of thinking is that it has the potential to let off doctors and nurses who have actually have been negligent in handling a mother’s pregnancy and delivering a child. It may be difficult to think about, but not all doctors are as careful and diligent as others, and mistakes resulting from negligence do happen. Unfortunately, those mistakes can be costly for you, your child, and your family.
