Your Lawyer May Follow the Blueprint for Showing Negligence
While lawyers may have diverse evidence for each case, they generally follow the same blueprint for proving negligence. The American Bar Association (ABA) explains that negligence can be any departure from reasonable behavior that causes harm.
A more specific process for proving medical negligence is:
- Proving that the medical professional in your case was your doctor
- Showing that the medical professional acted in a negligent way
- Proving that the medical professional’s negligence contributed to your child’s hemorrhage
- Establishing that the medical professional’s negligence caused your child’s losses and possibly your own losses
Aside from step one, this may be the general process for proving negligence in any personal injury or wrongful death case. If a non-medical professional was negligent in causing your child’s hemorrhage, then your lawyer may still follow steps 2 through 4 when making your case.
A Lawyer from Our Firm Will Pursue Fair Coverage for Your Losses
Your child may be the primary victim of medical malpractice. As the one who suffered a hemorrhage, they may:
- Have permanent brain damage
- Have diagnosable conditions such as cerebral palsy, which the journal Clinics in Perinatology explains can result from hemorrhages in newborns
- Require lifelong assistance to complete tasks that are generally considered routine
- Experience a diminished quality of life
You may also suffer numerous losses as the parent of a newborn with a brain hemorrhage. The cost of raising your child could increase significantly, as you may need to pay for the cost of:
- Medical care stemming directly from their hemorrhage
- Caregivers throughout your life
- Medications related to symptoms of their hemorrhage
- Alternative education
- Supporting an adult who may not be able to maintain regular employment
Every victim of a newborn hemorrhage faces a unique reality, as do their parents. Your lawyer will speak with you and medical professionals to determine your child’s prognosis. This may provide a clearer picture of the losses for which you may receive coverage.
