Texans who are expecting the birth of a child may find themselves excited and nervous at the same time. These emotions are often tied to what will come after the baby is born, as well as how a parent's life may change afterward. Yet, there may be other reasons to be nervous while awaiting the birth of a child. Chief amongst these is the fact that birth injuries are a far too common reality across Texas and America.
Birth injuries can come in many forms and severity. Something like a broken bone, although serious, may heal relatively quickly with very little lingering effects. Other birth injuries though, like cerebral palsy, shoulder dystocia and brachial plexus palsy, can have long-term effects that leave victims with life-long physical disabilities. They and their families can also face significant hardship, as effectively caring for and treating these conditions can be extremely costly.
That is why attorneys, like those at Davis & Davis Attorneys at Law, stand ready to help. By pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit, these families may be able to recover the compensation they need to reclaim their financial stability and feel that errant medical professionals have paid for the harm that they have caused. However, not every birth injury is caused by negligence, so these lawsuits are often hotly contested, meaning that those seeking compensation may need to be aggressive in pursuing their claim.
At our firm, we diligently work with our clients to ensure their claim is as fully developed as possible before moving forward. We know how to predict defense strategies and craft legal theories to rebut them, which means identifying and effectively examining witnesses and successfully admitting physical evidence that buttresses our clients' claims.
In these types of cases, the defense will be looking for any weakness in your claim that they can exploit. We therefore encourage you to do everything in your power to ensure that your claim is as ironclad as possible.
