New parents expect their lives to be dramatically changed with the birth of their new baby. However, they don’t expect it to be dramatically changed for the worse as the result of a birth injury. When this happens, seeking compensation to help your child receive the best care possible is important.
A medical malpractice case involving birth injury takes an experienced personal injury attorney because it must be proved that a birth injury took place and what the direct cause of the injury was. As with any case, evidence is the foundation. It requires quick action to preserve what evidence of the injury there is.
