Are All Birth Injuries Legally Actionable?
One of the reasons why it’s so important to schedule a free case evaluation with our firm’s West Palm Beach birth injury lawyer is that you may understandably be unsure of whether you have grounds for legal action in the first place. It isn’t always easy to tell whether the circumstances surrounding a particular injury are grounds for a lawsuit or not. This is often especially true in birth injury cases, given that birth is an inherently traumatic process for both mother and child. If your child’s birthing process didn’t go smoothly and your child suffered as a result, was that the fault of your medical team or were your child’s circumstances unpreventable? The experienced Florida legal team at The Law Office of Eric H. Luckman, P.A. knows how to uncover the truth in birth injury cases so that our clients can make informed decisions about their options.
Not all birth injuries are legally actionable. Successful personal injury cases prove that the medical team (or drug manufacturer, hospital, etc.) breached the “duty of care” owed to the patient and directly caused the patient’s injuries as a result. Sometimes mothers and infants suffer harm during the birthing process in ways that don’t fit these criteria. However, it’s important to have your case evaluated instead of assuming that either scenario applies to your situation.
Legal Assistance Is Available
Don’t assume that simply because your child’s medical team insists that your child’s injuries couldn’t have been prevented that medical negligence wasn’t a factor in your child’s situation. Too often, medical professionals are not wholly honest with their patients in the wake of a misstep on their part. If something doesn’t feel right to you, connect with our firm today. Our West Palm Beach, FL birth injury lawyer can provide you with the kind of clarity that will allow you to determine whether you should file a legal action or avoid doing so at this time; we look forward to speaking with you.
