How Birth Injuries Happen And What They Mean For Your Family
Birth injuries can happen at multiple points during childbirth. Medical teams often cause birth injuries by their failure to monitor the mother or child properly during labor, overly forceful intervention during birth or improperly monitoring the child post-birth. Children with birth injuries often need additional care throughout their life, including:
- Increased medical care and frequent check-ups
- Surgery and other invasive medical intervention
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Adaptive learning aids
This is all in addition to the less tangible needs your child will have. Early intervention is key. In these instances, it is vital that you speak with a lawyer early on and that your lawyer has experience working with lifecare planners and other professionals who can help your child thrive.
