Unforeseen Costs In Long-Term Medical Malpractice Birth Injuries
The devastation of learning that your newborn has a birth injury has set in. It’s challenging enough trying to settle into the role of new parent, let alone caregiver of a baby with a long-term birth injury – particularly when the cause is medical malpractice negligence and legalities are likely to ensue. Focusing on the present drains every bit of your brain power and energy. You need help, resources, solutions – and an effective, solid plan for the future.
Long-term medical malpractice birth injuries, however, can distort parents’ future views in a number of ways, including with regard to monetary compensation amounts needed in provable birth injury cases. Medical malpractice injuries due to premature birth, for example, may result in children requiring multiple surgeries during their lifetimes. Lung, heart, brain, eye, intestine, and bone problems are only some of the potential long-term issues that may result in surgery. The Mayo Clinic notes several long-term problems associated with premature birth, including cerebral palsy.1
Improper prenatal maternal care, lack of testing, misdiagnosis, and medication errors are only some of the potential malpractice negligence situations that may lead to long-term medical malpractice birth injuries.
Parents whose infants have suffered a long-term birth injury due to provable medical malpractice negligence not only want valid answers to their questions, but also a combination of useful direction and effective assistance.
