OB-GYN Negligence and The Critical Nature of Birth Injury Compensation
Second only to securing the best of medical care for infants sustaining birth injuries due to OB-GYN negligence is obtaining a combination of justice and fair compensation. And while each of these is significantly important, fair compensation is critical to ensuring continued care both short term and long term. It’s the basis for all things essential and helpful when growing up disabled and living with disabilities.
Parents may believe that directly contacting an OB-GYN whose negligence caused their infant’s birth injury or injuries is the best step when seeking justice and compensation. In fact, it is unlikely to help in either arena.
Record-breaking attorney Richard “Bo” Sharp of Mallard & Sharp, P.A. notes that contacting a negligent OB-GYN, or any other provably responsible party involved with OB-GYN negligence, is unlikely to produce the results necessary to ensure financial compensation commensurate to providing care and resources for a birth injured infant’s needs now and into the future.
“If you think your baby was the victim of medical negligence, do not expect the doctor or hospital who caused your child’s injury to admit fault and take responsibility for their actions…they won’t. In nearly all cases where a baby is the victim of medical malpractice, the child and family will never be compensated for their injuries unless they hire an attorney,” Sharp states.
Sharp, a noted Miami attorney and lead counsel in the recent recovery of a record $12 million FTCA medical malpractice settlement1 in a birth injury medical malpractice negligence case, recommends that parents of birth injured infants due to OB-GYN negligence seek expert legal help rather than contacting the negligent party or parties directly.
Whether a baby has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, brain damage, organ failure, asphyxia, an infection, or any other type of birth injury, contacting an experienced birth injury lawyer or legal team with regard to the baby’s OB-GYN negligence birth injury as early as possible is a crucial first step. Researching information about lawyers who specialize in OB-GYN negligence birth injuries can be highly beneficial.
If you or your baby sustained an OB-GYN negligence birth injury, contacting an experienced lawyer for an initial consultation is a vitally important step. It is helpful to research information about lawyers who specialize in birth injury cases, or if possible, who specialize in the particular type of OB-GYN negligence birth injury lawsuit case you may be dealing with.
