Legal Assistance With Your Birth Injury Claim

If your doctor or another medical professional makes an error or acts negligently during the process of childbirth, a variety of injuries and complications can occur for both the mother and the child. If negligent treatment occurs, the child can experience injuries and develop conditions such as brachial plexus injuries, bone fractures, perinatal asphyxia, spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, cephalohematoma, and more. Likewise, the mother can experience various forms of trauma and injury if care is not properly administered to her leading up to, during, and after childbirth. No matter the type or extent of the injuries suffered, there are avenues available to you to recover compensation for your losses.

Our West Virginia birth injury attorney can help you navigate the claims process. In order for your claim to be successful, it must be proven that malpractice or negligent care occurred. Healthcare professionals have a certain standard of care that they are expected to maintain, and failure to do so can make them liable for any injuries suffered. Your doctor may be found liable if they failed to detect or properly diagnose a condition in the mother or newborn, failed to recognize distress, failed to address labor complications, failed to perform a C-section when it was necessary, negligently used medical equipment such as vacuum extraction or forceps, improperly administered medication, or otherwise provided negligent care during childbirth or negligent prenatal or neonatal care.

Our WV birth injury lawyer will investigate your case and gather evidence that clearly displays the extent of your doctor’s liability and the damage that it caused to you and your child. We will then assist you in filing your claim and represent you in all negotiations with the insurance company in pursuit of the compensation that you deserve. This compensation is designed to offset the financial burden placed on you and often includes payment for losses such as medical bills and expenses, rehabilitation and therapy, long term care needs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
