A doctor or medical professional’s negligence is one of the leading causes of birth injury in the United States today. In fact, data from the National Institute of Health shows thousands of infants are harmed as the result of such errors each year. One of the more common errors that occurs is a failure by the doctor, nurse midwife, and/or labor and delivery nurse to notice indications that the baby was having problems during labor. If this occurs, delivery often should occur quickly for the safety of the baby.
One of the most important things to remember when a medical mistake is made is that proving negligence in birth injury cases isn’t always a simple task. That’s why our attorneys at Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy have outlined the steps you should take if you or your child has suffered a birth injury because of a medical error.
Showing a doctor failed to meet standards of care or was negligent in acting to treat a patient, therefore causing the patient to be harmed, is one of the most crucial aspects of any birth injury case and there are three crucial steps to providing this proof. The first is collecting your medical records regarding your treatment as evidence. Your attorney and a panel of experts should then examine these documents. The opinions that are provided can then be used as evidence in your case.
At Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy, we know proving a birth injury isn’t always a simple process, and we suggest having legal counsel by your side if you decide to pursue such a claim in court. Our Cleveland personal injury attorneys and our legal staff are standing by to assist you anytime by calling (888) 900-6075.
