Grant & Eisenhofer P.A. Explains Why Families May Need a Birth Injury Attorney – Press Release
CHICAGO – April 1, 2021 – (Newswire.com)
Birth injury attorneys in Chicago at Grant & Eisenhofer PA advocate for children and families seriously injured in childbirth. Below are some of the reasons families might need a birth injury attorney.
Determination of liability for an avoidable birth injury
If medical negligence by a health care provider responsible for caring for a child results in a birth injury, the care provider may be responsible for harm to the child. However, it can be difficult to determine who is responsible for a child’s birth injury. Many parties are involved in the labor and delivery of a child, and more than one party can share responsibility for an injury.
Liability can be determined by reviewing the medical records of the mother and child. An experienced birth injury attorney may be able to determine a family’s legal options by reviewing these records. An attorney can also hire medical experts to conduct further investigation into the injury to draw a conclusion about how it occurred and who is to blame.
Compensation for a Preventable Birth Injury
Depending on the type of birth injury or state of health, the child may have a permanent disability and require lifelong care. Children with certain medical conditions, such as B. Cerebral palsy, may require professional assistance and specialized equipment from childhood through adulthood. Families can find it difficult to pay these expenses.
A birth injury attorney may be able to help an affected family obtain compensation through litigation in order to receive the long-term care required for the child. Many law firms operate on a contingent fee basis. This means that the law firm will advance the costs associated with the case. The company will only reimburse its expenses and fees if it reaches an agreement or judgment for its client. This gives families from all walks of life access to legal services.
