The day of your child’s birth came and went, and instead of going home with a healthy, normal child like you dreamed about, you instead have a child with special needs. Nothing during the pregnancy indicated that your child was going to have any developmental issues. You were lead to expect that everything would be ok when the baby arrived. Instead, something went wrong during the birth and your child now has a birth injury that is making life difficult for everyone. It’s important that you talk to a Texas Birth Injury Attorney as quickly as possible. Someone may have made a mistake in the delivery room, and they need to take responsibility for their actions.
The delivery room is a hectic place when the child is about to arrive. All of the medical personnel are to take their places and do their duties as they always do. After all, they are professionals who have delivered many children before yours. Yet, someone made a decision to do something, or failed to do anything at all, and your child is suffering the consequences.
There are quite a few things that a surgeon can fail to do which results in a birth injury in Texas. Sometimes a lack of action on the part of the physician is all it takes to cause damage, other times it’s taking the wrong action. Ultimately, the result is the same. Your child has suffered injuries, ones you never expected to have to deal with. There is no going back to undo the damage, and everyone’s lives are now changed permanently.
Talk to a Texas Birth Injury Attorney if an injury happened to your child during delivery. It takes time to determine what went on, and sometimes, there is no obvious cause. A lawyer has to obtain all of the paperwork related to the time of the incident, then send it to medical experts for examination. Medical experts look for actions not taken or improperly performed in the delivery room in order to ascertain who’s at fault. In the event that the medical staff is at fault, it is possible to bring about a lawsuit against those who failed to do their duty.
