It can take a long time for a medical negligence case involving an injured baby to work its way through the courts. Unfortunately, there isn’t much time after one of these incidents occurs to actually file the lawsuit. That means that parents have to be working quickly when they feel that negligence caused their child’s birth injuries. Attorneys will generally meet with such parents for free, so there is no reason to delay. These are things to look at when you’re wondering whether or not filing a medical negligence claim is merited.
Many of the claims filed over birth injuries involve mothers who did not receive care when it was needed. Many of those claims also involved delayed C-sections that may have saved the child from injury if they’d been given in time.
