Birth Injury Lawyer in Lafayette
Cases of medical malpractice can be difficult, as the incident that led to the injury must be measured against the standard of care that should have been present if another similar physician was attending the birth. Some cases are clear in the evidence of breach of duty of care; others may be more difficult to determine what led to the injury of the new baby. It is important that action is taken quickly when the injury is apparent, as over time those who could provide evidence can forget the details, or other evidence that can support the case can become harder to find. Each birth has records, personnel attending and all of this evidence must be gathered in order to determine if there is a case for medical malpractice.
The dedicated legal team at the firm will assist clients in determining how to move forward legally when they have an injured child. In cases of loss of life, a wrongful death claim can be filed against the medical center, physician, or other responsible party. This is one form of justice available under law, and can help other parents in the future in avoiding the same tragic consequences after a case of medical negligence resulting in a birth injury.
