Infant Injury Liability in Houston Texas
Who Is Liable for My Child’s Injury?
Giving birth is supposed to be one of the most joyous occasions in a person’s life. When your child is harmed by negligence during the birthing process, that joy can turn to a lifetime of pain and sorrow because of permanent injury or death. Many medical professionals try to dodge responsibility by claiming that “unavoidable complications” caused the birth injury. This leaves many parents wondering how they will pay for the many surgeries, medications, adaptive equipment or other needs their baby will have as it grows.
The question of “Who is liable for my child’s injury” comes up a lot once a couple learns that they and their baby are victims of medical malpractice. Unfortunately, it’s not the easiest thing to trace. Our attorneys have more than a decade of experience handling birth injuries and can help you answer that question.
