Corpus Christi Birth Injury Attorneys
Was Your Child’s Condition Caused by Substandard Medical Care?
Birth injuries can occur for different reasons, but no matter their cause, they may have significant emotional and physical consequences. If your child experienced a birth injury, you will face financial burdens now and throughout your child’s life. You may need to deal with ongoing medical expenses, special schooling, physical therapy, and much more. It is essential to recover financial compensation that can cover your child’s current, ongoing, and lifelong care.

We can determine if your physician handled the birth properly or if another healthcare professional may have been negligent before, during, or after labor and delivery. If substandard care was provided, our Corpus Christi birth injury attorneys can fight to bring the responsible parties to justice.

Types of Birth Injuries
Preventable birth injuries may range from minor to very serious. They all deserve attention because someone did not handle your baby properly during childbirth. Injury could include broken bones, cerebral palsy, or even death. No matter the situation, if there was negligence involved, you may wish to consider pursuing a case against the at-fault party as soon as possible.
Some of the ways that birth injury can occur include:
- Unnecessary or improper use of forceps or vacuum extractor during delivery
- Improper delay in ordering a C-section
- Failure to monitor or address fetal distress
- Improper use of Pitocin, a drug used to induce labor
- Failure to perform specialized testing and other testing during pregnancy
- Neglecting to handle or refer high-risk patients in the proper manner
Birth injuries are not just limited to the baby. If the mother was injured during childbirth and negligence was involved, you could have a case as well.
Creating a Valid Birth Injury Claim
You will need to do a few things in order to have a valid birth injury claim, including proving that negligence was involved and caused the injury. Negligence can occur if the physician or healthcare worker did not follow standards for care during birth or if they used improper procedures to handle the birth itself.
When you work with a Corpus Christi birth injury lawyer at the Bandas Law Firm, we will go through the whole research and discovery process to find negligence and document it properly. Of course, if your child has suffered from a birth injury, then dealing with a lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind. Let us handle everything for you so you can focus on your child’s care.
