Texas Infant Injury Liability Laws
Who Should Be Held Responsible For the Injury Caused to My Child?
The joy of having a baby is meant to bring a lovely celebration of life to a family. However when something goes wrong and your baby is injured as a result of medical malpractice, excitement can quickly change to fear and ongoing heartbreak. Often the medical community aims to avoid liability in birth injury cases by stating that “unpreventable issues” arose during delivery. Many families are left to cover the expenses for the ongoing medical treatments that the baby may need throughout their lifetime.
As parents come to understand that their child has suffered as a result of medical malpractice, the question arises as to who should be held responsible. Often it is very difficult to pinpoint the negligent parties. Our experienced lawyers have dealt with birth injury lawsuits for over 10 years and can ensure that the responsible parties are held to account.

Accordingly, we are all invested in each and every client to ensure they achieve the successful outcome they deserve.
How Did This Injury Occur?
Sometimes investigation is necessary to pinpoint exactly who is responsible for your child´s injury. All medical professionals involved in your pregnancy and birth are possibly responsible, including:
- Lab technicians
- Hospital or birthing center staff
We employ a nurse who will speak with you about your pregnancy and delivery to ascertain whether it is clear who the responsible party is. We will also examine your hospital data and investigate every possibility to ensure the responsible party is held to account for their error.
