Phoenix Birth Injury Lawyer
Was Your Child Seriously Injured?
Pregnancy and birth, while both physically and emotionally stressful, should be a time of celebration – after all, you’re bringing a brand new life into this world. This process requires constant care and attention from your doctor in order to ensure a happy and healthy child. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of children suffer from serious birth injuries due to a medical professional’s negligence or wrongdoing, and that number may only be climbing. A few years ago, Reuters Health reported that the number of severe complications during childbirth had increased by about 75 percent since the decade before, and the number of complications that came up after the delivery increased by 114 percent since the decade before.

Serious Types of Birth Injuries
Your child could suffer any number of complications during pregnancy, the delivery or after they are born. The most serious types of injuries include:
The mother could also be at risk of suffering a serious injury or complication if they aren’t properly cared for throughout the pregnancy and birthing process. Some of the most serious include gestational diabetes, preeclampsia and placental abruption, though there are numerous others that could put their health or lives at risk.
How Do I Secure Compensation?
Many types of birth injuries result in permanent and irreversible damage to your child who may require constant assistance and care in order to live a relatively normal life. The costs associated with this can quickly put any family in a serious financial bind – if your child’s injuries were caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of the medical professional tasked with keeping you and your child safe, you shouldn’t be required to shoulder these costs on your own. A medical malpractice claim can help you secure the compensation for any medical bills, damages and non-economic losses like emotional distress and pain and suffering.
You need to be able to prove that the actions your healthcare provider took fell below the accepted standard of care and were unreasonably incompetent in order to successfully pursue a medical malpractice claim. You also need to prove that their actions directly caused the child’s and / or the mother’s injuries. An experienced attorney can help you navigate this potentially complicated process in order to secure the compensation you need.
