While many life-threatening injuries at birth have been minimized thanks to advances in modern medicine, preventable injuries are still far too common.
When a newborn baby suffers a birth injury, the last thing a parent wants to think about is a lawsuit. However, if the birth injury was caused by medical malpractice, parents may be able to file a lawsuit to receive compensation that covers future medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, disfigurement, and more.
A lawsuit can not only provide financial support for lifelong treatment but also hold negligent parties accountable for their actions in an effort to prevent the wrongdoing from happening again. Find out more about birth injuries and malpractice lawsuits.
