We Can Help When a Medical Professional Violates Your Rights
Our legal team may lead your case after a violation of your rights. As the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) explains, all healthcare patients have rights. You have the right to sue when you become the victim of malpractice.
Your lawyer will determine whether any medical professional’s negligence caused your child’s injuries. Questions that may help assess negligence include:
- Was the medical professional serving you in a legally-binding capacity?
- Did the medical professional breach their duty of care?
- Did the medical professional’s breach of duty of care cause your child’s injury?
- Has your child suffered because of their injury?
A lawyer from our team will tailor this test to fit your circumstances. Negligence by medical professionals can take many forms, including:
- Physical errors
- Judgment errors
- Lack of thoroughness
- Lack of preparedness
Any of these specific errors could cause a hemorrhage.
We Can Identify the Cause of Your Child’s Injury
When proving negligence, it helps to be as specific as possible. A lawyer from our team will try to pinpoint the precise cause of your child’s brain hemorrhage. Possible causes of newborn brain hemorrhages are:
- A doctor’s failure to diagnose conditions that increase the risk of a birth injury
- A doctor prescribing medication to the mother in a risky manner
- A doctor causing injury with forceps, which the journal Neurosurgerynotes is one cause of brain hemorrhages
- A doctor failing to order an emergency c-section delivery
- Unsafe handling of your child by a nurse or medical assistant
Our lawyer will determine who owed their clients a legal duty of care for their newborn’s brain hemorrhage. They also identify what caused the child’s injuries.
We will hire medical experts as necessary to join our team. They may provide valuable insights into your child’s injuries. Their testimony also could support your case for financial recovery.
