Birth Asphyxia Lawyer Virginia

Birth Asphyxia Lawyer VirginiaThere is no greater joy than the birth of a child. Unfortunately, for far too many parents in Virginia and across the country, that joy quickly turns to devastation when they realize their infant has suffered a birth injury due to medical negligence. The cost to families for preventable birth injuries can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. This is why many families turn to a birth asphyxia lawyer Virginia clients recommend from MartinWren, P.C. An attorney from our firm can help parents pursue financial compensation for the economic costs their child’s injury will cause, as well as the non-economic ones.

What Is Medical Negligence in Birth Injuries?

The first step in a birth injury lawsuit is determining what happened to the baby during labor and delivery that caused the injury. Although there are birth injuries that are unavoidable, there are many that happen due to medical negligence on the part of the obstetrician, nurses, other medical staff, or the medical facility.

Medical negligence is legally defined as the improper medical treatment of a patient by a medical professional who fails to provide the same quality of treatment that a medical professional who has similar education and experience would have provided under similar circumstances. This is known as the “medical standard of care.”

As a birth injury lawyer Virginia families trust can explain, there is a difference between medical negligence and medical malpractice. Medical negligence is when a medical professional fails to provide treatment that meets that medical standard of care. Medical malpractice is when that medical negligence results in harm, injury, or death to that patient.

If a child’s birth injury was caused by medical negligence and the child and/or family suffered damages (i.e., medical expenses, lost income from missed work, etc.), then the parents of the child have a valid birth injury medical malpractice lawsuit. A birth injury attorney could pursue damages for both the economic and noneconomic losses the birth injury has caused the child and the parents, including medical bills, lost wages and benefits, pain and suffering of the baby, emotional anguish, and more.
