What Should I Do If I Suspect My Child May Have Been Injured During Birth?

The process of giving birth can be a chaotic experience. New parents may not even be fully aware of how many medical personnel are in the room at all times, let alone every procedure performed, medication administered and test ordered. As a result, the aftermath of the birth experience can be strangely disorienting. You may have concerns about your child’s wellbeing that you don’t quite know how to vocalize. You may have questions about your baby’s wellbeing that you aren’t receiving satisfactory answers to. Please know that you are not alone. Many parents struggle with these same challenges. And too often, parents are led to believe that they have nowhere to turn for experienced guidance.

If you either know or suspect that your baby may have been injured during the birth process, please do not hesitate to schedule a consultation with an experienced personal injury and wrongful birth lawyer in Miami, Florida.

An attorney experienced in birth injury claims will be able to speak with you about your options once that Miami, FL wrongful birth lawyer learns about your birth process and your baby’s unique situation.

If it is ultimately determined that your baby was injured during the birth process, you may be able to file a legal claim against anyone (and/or any entity, like the hospital where the baby was born or the manufacturer of a medical device or medication that caused the injury) responsible for harming your child. If your claim is successful, you may be able to recover so-called financial damages that will allow you to pay for your child’s past and future medical bills related to the birth injury. Other economic and non-economic damages may be awarded as well. And importantly, your case may help to ensure that other babies are not similarly harmed in the future.
