What Steps to Take After You Discover a Birth Injury
If you suspect that your child has suffered a birth injury due to a medical provider’s negligence or carelessness, it is important that you take steps to protect your legal rights. Begin with gathering information and documenting the incident as best as you can, including:
- Making a list of the contact information for your treating physicians and other medical professionals, including your OB/GYN
- Making a list of the hospitals and medical facilities where you were treated or delivered your child
- Write down the medical procedures that were performed or offered to you, including ultrasounds, measuring of fundal height, etc.
- Create a timeline of all of the events that took place with as many details as you can
- List any prescription medications that you were taking during your pregnancy
- Write down any concerns that you may have had during pregnancy and labor & delivery
Once you have documented everything that you can, your next step is to contact an attorney who specializes in cases like yours. Because birth injuries fall under an extremely complex area of law known as medical malpractice, it is important that you select an attorney with experience and a proven track record winning medical malpractice cases.
