Large settlement reached in birth injuries trial

Houston families await the birth of a child with great anticipation. Most of the time these births occur with no complication and result in a healthy child and a grateful family. Still, complications can arise resulting in birth injuries or even death caused by such injuries.

A family in Pennsylvania has received a large settlement for the birth injury of their son. The family argued that the doctor ignored the signs that the baby was losing a significant amount of oxygen during the delivery process. The loss of oxygen resulted in serious developmental delays. The child suffers from cerebral palsy, has trouble walking and is still wearing diapers at age 4. The family argued that the delivery should have been done by C-section because of the mom's petite stature and the delivery using a vacuum suction. If the child would have been delivered by C-section, their lawsuit contended, their child would not have been affected by these complications.

Families whose lives have been turned upside down by birth injuries have many questions about what went wrong. A legal professional skilled in medical malpractice can help families determine the truth about what happened to their child. They can determine who is at fault and help families recover maximum financial compensation for their tremendous burden. Families may now face a lifetime of unexpected medical expenses, therapy expenses and other care expenses. Although these injuries are often permanent and cannot be reversed, funding of these expenses can help a family's life be a little easier.

Houston residents whose lives have been turned upside down by a birth injury do have legal options to pursue. Holding those accountable for these injuries is important in preventing these injuries from occurring to another family.
