How Can I Tell if the Doctor Caused My Child’s Birth Injury?

If your child was seriously injured during the delivery process, you may be wondering if you are entitled to damages. Whether they were deprived of oxygen for a prolonged period of time or they were born with a life-altering condition like Cerebral Palsy, you will need to determine whether or not your doctor’s actions, or inaction, had contributed to your child’s harm. In order to do so, it is highly recommended that you discuss your case with a Milwaukee personal injury attorney at Welcenbach Law Offices, S.C. We will be able to conduct an investigation and more accurately determine how your child was injured. Although most people associate birth injuries with medical negligence, it is important to understand that not all adverse conditions are preventable.

For this reason, you will need to prove three things in order secure compensation:

  • The doctor who handled the delivery failed to provide a reasonable level of care
  • Your child was injured as a result of the doctor’s negligent actions and/or inaction
  • Had the doctor not acted negligently, the child would not have sustained an injury

As long as you can sufficiently prove that each of the aforementioned conditions existed, there is a good chance that you will be able to recover damages from the responsible party. Without the help of a qualified lawyer, however, this can be rather difficult.
