Baby Brain Damage

Did Your Baby Suffer Brain Damage Due to Medical Mistakes?

Nothing is more important than your baby’s health. During pregnancy and delivery, you put your trust in your healthcare provider to take the best possible care of your developing child. Unfortunately, some doctors, nurses, or other care providers are not worthy of that trust.

Some obstetrics teams fail to diagnose key conditions before birth, which can lead to complications. Others commit errors during the birth itself, like depriving the fetus of oxygen, that can cause significant brain damage.

Whatever the cause, there is no greater fear as a new parent than having a baby born with preventable brain damage. If you have suffered this tragedy, the healthcare providers who caused the problem should be held accountable.

Your Options

Brain damage that can be caused by medical malpractice may include cerebral palsy, hydrocephalus, seizures, fetal stroke, motor disorders, and intellectual or developmental disabilities. These disorders can be very severe and very expensive to treat. You should not be burdened alone with the cost of your child’s healthcare if his or her illness is due to an error by the healthcare provider.

Although a financial settlement cannot make up for the heartache of learning that your child has experienced brain damage, it can help cover the costs of future treatment. An experienced attorney can help you figure out whether you might be a candidate for such a settlement.
