Over the past three weeks, we have discussed three serious birth injuries that can have a long-lasting impact on a baby. Those three birth injuries were meconium aspiration syndrome, fetal distress, and acardiac twin syndrome. While these conditions don’t automatically mean harm to a baby, without proper medical management, they can be devastating. When they aren’t managed properly, parents might find themselves in an uphill battle fighting for their child.
We understand how much of an impact having a baby with a medical condition can be, and we understand how much it can affect every aspect of your life. There is one area in which we can help parents who have a baby who suffered a birth injury — seeking financial compensation for the injury.
Putting together a birth injury medical malpractice case isn’t easy. We have to prove that negligence or malpractice led to the injury. This can often mean studying medical records, determining the standard of care for those injuries, and finding medical experts to back up your side of the story. We have the experience of developing cases that can take the stress of doing those things off of you.
No matter what type of birth injury your child suffered, we can help you determine how to proceed with a claim in Kentucky. We can help you look into who is to blame for the injury, which might mean doctors, nurses or midwives.
