How can I determine if my child’s injuries were the result of medical malpractice?
Unfortunately, determining medical malpractice is not always easy. Medical professionals have difficult jobs and just because something went wrong during the delivery process does not automatically mean that your doctor was responsible. However, if your baby’s injuries were caused by a doctor or other medical staff member who could have prevented mistakes from happening, then this is a clear indicator of medical malpractice.
It is especially important to seek help from trustworthy Lawyer for Birth Injury during this time, so that we can gather the necessary evidence for a lawsuit.
What kind of damages can I recover?
When you are filing a lawsuit, you can seek compensation for various damages related to your child’s temporary or permanent medical condition which was a result of medical negligence. Medical malpractice compensation can include:
- Hospital bills
- Your child’s medical expenses
- Childcare bills
- Pain and suffering
- Any adjustments to your home to accommodate your child’s medical condition
- Lost wages while you were taking care of your child
When filing for medical malpractice, you need to know that there are four elements a Birth Injury Lawyer will be evaluating, to determine if this was caused by negligence or if it was something that could not have been avoided:
- Duty. The doctor responsible for you and your child had a duty of care. This means that they had a duty to ensure the safety of you and your child.
- Breach. The doctor breached the duty of care when taking care of you.
- Injuries. Your child sustained injuries from this breach of duty. If they did not actually sustain injuries, there is no causation.
- Damages. Because of the injuries your child sustained, there are damages. This means you would seek compensation for damages like medical bills or physical therapy directly caused by the child’s injuries.
