Many families trust their doctors to facilitate the healthy birth of their child. While many doctors follow safe and healthy birthing guidelines, some act negligently and cause life-altering and irreparable damage to the children that they are delivering. When these babies are victimized, their families have to pay for any additional medical support they may need. A child may require multiple surgeries, therapies, or medications to lessen the damage due to medical negligence.
While birth injury rates have fluctuated over the decades, with improved medical tools like forceps and vacuums, the probability of injuring the baby is much higher today. Many parents have filed lawsuits against hospitals, doctors, or any other liable party for their child’s injuries during birth.
Families of children that have been affected by negligent doctors during birth will need an experienced medical malpractice lawyer for legal representation. Broughton Partners works to connect professional law firms with potential plaintiffs who meet the case criteria.
