Lafayette, LA Birth Injury Attorney

Birth Injury Cases in Lafayette

When families suffer the tragedy of a birth injury that they suspect or know is the result of negligence, they may not know where to turn. A damaged child with a future forever altered by the lack of proper medical care during birth is a life-changing and frightening experience. Any such case should have skilled legal representation from a Lafayette personal injury lawyer from Doran & Cawthorne, P.L.L.C.. The tragic consequences of a birth injury can be as terrible as the loss of life of the child, through to a child with Erb's palsy, cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries and other catastrophic injuries. Mr. Doran is a compassionate and committed Lafayette birth injury attorney that can assist parents of injured children in seeking financial compensation.

Birth Injury Lawyer Serving 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. Contact a Lafayette birth injury lawyer from the firm at 888-527-4716 if you suspect that you have a case of medical negligence that led to a birth injury.
