Birth trauma occurs when a serious injury (often with permanent or long lasting effects) is sustained by a child during pregnancy or delivery. Birth-related medical malpractice cases are usually the result of a negligent doctor, staff member or hospital. Birth-related medical malpractice can have devastating consequences for a family and their newborn, who may suffer lifelong complications.
If your child was injured during the birth process, or otherwise, we can help you determine whether or not the injury was preventable. In situations involving preventable injuries, you may have a legal claim that allows you to obtain the assistance and compensation you and your child deserve. In Louisiana, there is a one year time period in which to file a claim such as this. Even though this is an extremely difficult and stressful time in a parent’s life, it is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible to avoid forfeiting your ability to file a claim.
