The birth of a child is a very happy time. However, there are times when something goes wrong in the delivery room. What goes wrong can involve the mother, the baby, or both. This can be devastating because parents rely on the medical professionals to make sure everything goes right. They are highly trained and they have experience, so they are expected to not make a mistake.
If you are a mother who has experienced an injury during the birth of your child or your child was injured during their birth, you may have a personal injury claim. At Farrish Johnson Law Office, you will work with a Southern Minnesota personal injury lawyer who will gather the facts in your case and present them so that you and your child can receive the monetary compensation you need to heal and move forward.
Helping Clients Affected By All Types Of Birth Injuries
Things can happen very quickly in the delivery room. One moment the baby can be fine and then the next minute there is a problem. You may have been told to wait at home when you should have been in the hospital or perhaps a c-section was needed and not ordered. Even the monitoring of the baby can be faulty, resulting in serious consequences.
The following are some of the types of birth injuries that some of our clients have had to face:
- Erb’s palsy
- Cerebral palsy
- Brain or head injury
- Twin birth defects
- Infant hematoma
- Caesarean section injuries
- Umbilical cord strangulation
- And many more.
Some of these are injuries that can affect your child for the rest of their life. You will take care of your child no matter what, but the disabilities that can be caused by errors in the delivery room can be costly. That is why it is your right to seek compensation for those injuries so that you do not have to pay out of your own pocket.
Successfully Seeking Compensation For Birth Injuries
It is a fact that not every birth is the smoothest process. A woman can labor for days and there are other times that the delivery must be assisted with various devices. The bumpier the delivery, the more room there is for error, but medical professionals are trained to deal with the bumps in the road so that they can delivery healthy babies without any problems. Your Mankato personal injury attorney will use all resources to show what happened in the delivery room and how it caused your child’s condition or your own pain. It is through this information that a settlement can be reached or you can win compensation through a trial.
