San Antonio Lawyers Dedicated To Helping Families Who Have Suffered Birth Injuries Due To Medical Malpractice
The impending birth of a new child is one of the best times in a person’s life. You do everything you can to provide him or her with everything needed to have a happy and healthy childhood. When a doctor or other medical professional makes a mistake during the birth that results in a significant brain injury, you deserve a team on your side committed to helping you get justice.
At Wyatt Law Firm, PLLC., our lawyers have helped many Texas families who have seen their dreams turn into nightmares due to the actions of a health care provider. We work tirelessly to build a compelling case that shows how the doctor, nurse or other individual acted in a negligent manner and caused your child’s brain injury. We are here to help.
Assisting With A Number Of Different Brain Injury Claims For Parents Of Newborns
The signs of a brain injury can sometimes be difficult to uncover in a newborn. Often, parents see something that just doesn’t seem right, and they discover something is wrong after seeing other doctors. Once an injury has been established, you need to be able to connect the condition to the team providing the care during the birth of the child, and this is where we can help. Some of the various brain injuries we see in newborns that result from medical malpractice include:
- Cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy
- Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) or oxygen deprivation
- Viral or bacterial infections, such as meningitis
- Methylmercury poisoning
- Other serious conditions due to physician or hospital negligence
These are some of the hardest cases we work at our law firm. We understand how difficult it is to be in your situation, and we will fight to get you and your child the full compensation deserved. We will not let physicians, hospitals or their insurance companies fail to take your claim seriously.
Permanent Physical Or Development Disabilities Can Result From Birth Injuries
Unfortunately, some of the injuries that children suffer in these types of cases can last an entire lifetime. The costs of care or rehabilitation can be extremely expensive, and you do not want to settle your case with the health care provider’s insurance company until you know exactly what sort of treatment your child will need.
We make sure that we have a comprehensive picture of your child’s health and any potential issues that may have as a result of the doctor or nurse’s negligence. We take the time to answer your questions, and put you in a position to give your child a positive future, so that he or she is able to overcome the challenges faced going forward.
