On Behalf of | Aug 11, 2015 | Birth Injury |

If you are a parent of a child with a birth defect or injury, you may not know where to start when it comes to handling and caring for said injury. We at Nield Law Group, APC., understand that you would like to make your child’s life as easy as possible. We would like to help you accomplish that.

Many birth injuries are caused by a lack of oxygen, which can cause innumerable mental and physical problems for a child. Brain injuries are the most common. A lack of proper oxygen at birth can cause stunted growth, and can lead to developmental issues later down the road. While these issues can be difficult to predict, it is possible that they may be long-lasting in some cases.

Because of the long-lasting nature of some birth injuries, you may be worried about the potential costs and life adjustments that you may need to make. This is where having an attorney may come in handy. If you are able to prove that the injury was caused by negligence on the part of the hospital, then you will likely be able to take your case to court. Doing that is the first step in seeing compensation for your hardships, which may make caring for your child a little easier.
