Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim for a Birth-Related Injury
Delivering a baby is a very complicated process that requires the full attention of highly trained and skilled medical professionals. When people are negligent and mistakes happen, your baby could suffer permanent injuries, including paralysis, cerebral palsy or even death. In addition to the mental and emotional distress, birth injuries can lead to many unforeseen expenses. If your family has suffered a birth injury because of the negligence of medical professionals, contact the birth injury experts at John Mobley Law Firm.
Your attorney will help you file a medical malpractice claim to get financial compensation to pay for:
- Adaptive equipment and home modifications
- Emotional damages (such as pain, suffering, or loss of companionship)
- Medical costs (including past and future expenses)
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Other healthcare-related expenses
- Loss of wages related to caring for family
- And more
Sadly, some birth injuries can lead to the death of the child. In that case, your attorney would file a wrongful death claim. Compensation could be awarded for emotional damages, medical expenses, funeral expenses and much more.
When you file a birth injury lawsuit, your attorney will build a case against the medical facility and/or the doctors, nurses and other medical professionals who delivered your child. Both parties will try to reach an agreement through a settlement. If they cannot reach an agreement, or if the settlement offer is too low, the case can then go to trial.
John Mobley and his staff are trial lawyers. They are highly trained and experienced in taking cases to court and trying them in front of judges and juries. Many lawyers you see on TV and billboards are not trial lawyers and have never set foot inside a courtroom.
When you contact the experienced, compassionate birth injury attorneys at John Mobley Law Firm, your initial consultation is always free.
