Look For These Signs

Too many times, birth injuries or defects happen because doctors and nurses are not providing the proper care and monitoring during pregnancy and the birthing process. Additionally, some injuries or defects may not be apparent for days, weeks or months after the child's birth. You will have to worry about how to afford ongoing costs such as doctor's bills, continual nursing care, substantial costs for equipment and medication, additional surgeries, installing adaptive equipment in your home and physical therapy.

Some common signs that something could be wrong include:

  • Vomiting
  • Excessive fussiness, grunting or crying
  • Seizures
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Difficulty eating, swallowing or breathing
  • Poor reflexes
  • Weak movements
  • Difficulty gaining weight
  • Missed milestones, such as crawling, picking up head, smiling, following objects, etc.

It is true that sometimes a birth defect or injury was unavoidable. However, our attorneys can help you determine that. We work with experts in the medical field to conduct thorough investigations for our clients to determine what went wrong. In these difficult cases, we will leave no stone unturned, because that is what's necessary when facing off against powerful health care companies and their insurance providers.
