Having a child should be one of the happiest days of our lives. But if your child suffers a preventable injury during birth, the occasion can mark the beginning of a stressful and worrisome path. How was my child injured? Could it have been prevented? How am I going to care for my child in the future? All of these questions, and many more, can be a constant source of anxiety and concern.
The cost of caring for a seriously injured child can be
overwhelming. Many families simply do not have the financial resources
necessary to pay for the care their child needs, now and in the future. So,
what is a parent to do?
In certain circumstances, you may be able to file a medical
malpractice lawsuit against the doctor or hospital to get compensation for
your child’s injuries in order to pay for the care your child needs.
