Indiana Birth Trauma Injury Attorneys
The birth of a baby should be a joyous time, a celebration of life and the beginning of a new journey. For some parents, however, the birth of a baby can result in birth trauma injuries and indescribable heartache.
Most couples choose to have their baby at a hospital or in a medical setting, believing the professionals who are offering care are well-trained and experienced. This level of trust can be permanently violated if a birth trauma injury occurs.
At Baker Law Team, we recognize the sensitivity involving such a traumatic, life-changing experience. Our office is located just outside Indianapolis in an accessible, comfortable setting. We will provide a free consultation regarding your baby’s birth injury trauma case.
Is Your Baby a Birth Trauma Injury Victim?
Birth injuries are injuries resulting from intentional or unintentional medical neglect and improper care. They are different from birth defects, which are conditions that may have been known about or presumed prior to birth and are out of the control of a medical professional. A qualified medical malpractice attorney at Baker Law Team can help you distinguish the particulars of your case and determine whether medical negligence was involved.
Types of Birth Trauma Injuries
In either case, a newborn can be left facing permanent and lifelong injuries, such as:
- Cerebral palsy
- Spinal cord injury
- Facial paralysis
- Neurological injury from insufficient oxygen
These injuries often occur during labor and delivery. Depending on the exact trauma, the trauma may also be the result of negligent postpartum care of the mother or baby.
Consequences of Birth Trauma Injuries
These injuries to a baby can lead to a lifetime need for therapy, medication, and professional medical care and oversight. These needs can result in hefty and ongoing medical bills for parents. In addition, no price tag can be placed on the mental anguish and suffering associated with birth trauma injuries.
How Can an Attorney Aid With Birth Trauma Injuries?
While the trauma itself cannot be undone, an attorney who specializes in medical malpractice cases can assist in obtaining financial compensation to ease these burdens. At Baker Law Team, we see babies and children as an especially vulnerable population.
During your free consultation, we will talk about what led up to the birth trauma injury, your and your family’s current quality of life, and your hopes for the future. Through piecing together facts and information from the delivery room, we will determine whether we can assist in seeking financial relief for your pain and anguish.
