How Do I Know if the Hospital Caused My Child’s Birth Injury?
When a child begins to show possible signs of a birth injury, parents have a host of questions that need to be answered. One of the most pressing, and most difficult to answer, is whether or not the injury was avoidable. During childbirth, a child is at risk from a number of environmental conditions. Some of them are unavoidable, such as genetics or the process itself, some may simply be unforeseeable, while others may be a direct result of actions taken by the medical professionals involved in the birth. Under these conditions, determining if the hospital is responsible for any injuries sustained requires a great amount of investigation into the exact factors in play.
Parents of children who may have suffered birth injuries or trauma have a right to know for certain what happened and, if there is a responsible party, to hold them accountable. Personal experience, while valuable, can be misleading without proper evidence and research. Finding this evidence is a process that begins by getting the medical records for a given case and often involves experts in multiple fields such as neonatal care, hospital policies, rehab experts, or others. Getting the answers parents want and need requires the aid of skilled professionals who understand the complexities of these cases and know who to reach out to for examination of the evidence.
