Holding Medical Professionals Accountable For Their Mistakes

Understanding Medical Malpractice Cases

Proving medical malpractice can be a very challenging prospect. Injured people must prove that their doctor was negligent and that this negligence caused an injury that caused harm. A medical expert’s opinion is needed to show that the doctor’s negligence was the cause of the injury.

The firm’s attorney has the resources and knowledge to help you prove negligence and bring a case. She will investigate every aspect of the injury and then create a personalized legal strategy based on your case’s unique details.

Common Birth Injuries Associated with Medical Malpractice

These examples of malpractice during childbirth can cause potentially lifelong disabilities, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Skull fractures
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Erb’s palsy

Tragically, many fetuses and newborns do not survive negligence from their mother’s physician.

Birth injuries can require expensive medical care to treat. If the baby is left permanently disabled, it could require special equipment like a wheelchair and customized vehicles for life. It might also require assistance from home health care workers and other professionals. These are all examples of economic damage to your family. Many families in this situation cannot afford the care their child needs. The law states that the negligent health care provider, not the victims, should have to pay.

Noneconomic damages, on the other hand, are harms that do not come with an obvious dollar amount attached but are just as real and life-changing. Examples include your child’s pain and suffering and emotional anguish due to their injuries and needed medical procedures. Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee all allow malpractice plaintiffs to seek compensation for noneconomic damages, though each state caps the amount you can recover.

The firm’s attorney will accurately calculate how much your child and family have suffered because of medical malpractice at birth and pursue maximum compensation.
