Did Medical Negligence Cause Your Baby’s Birth Injury?
We understand that a birth injury or birth defect is a frightening, emotional experience for a family to face. During this difficult time, you need an advocate to explain your rights and review the medical records so you can understand what happened. Even if you are not sure that malpractice occurred, it is important to speak with a lawyer.
Anticipating The Long-Term Needs Of Caring For A Child Born With Disabilities
Recovering damages from medical malpractice is something you must do to cover the cost of the lifetime of medical care and special services your child will require. Without adequate financial compensation, it is nearly impossible to afford the cost of caring for a severely injured child. Health insurance will not be enough. Your family will also need compensation for the wage and benefits losses you experience. Talk to the legal team at Shelly Law Offices, LLC, today to learn how we can help.
