How a Lawyer Can Help with Birth Defects from a Lack of a C-section

The birth of your child should be a joyous celebratory time; however, there are many complications that may arise during the process. It is imperative for doctors and nurses to closely monitor the entire process of labor and delivery to detect any problems that may develop. Often, a cesarean, (C-section) may be the best option to prevent injury or birth defects.

If a doctor fails to recognize the need for a C-section and your child develops birth defects because of the doctor’s error, you need to seek the legal guidance of the Savage Law Firm in Portland. Life-long birth defects such as cerebral palsy or Erb’s palsy can cause many years of pain and suffering to the child and the child’s parents. Medical bills can be exorbitant. Some victims require a life time of 24-hour care. Your family should not be responsible for these expenses that could have been prevented if the doctor had performed a C-section.

Legal Recourse for Preventable Birth Defects

If your family has suffered from your child’s birth defects that could have been prevented if the doctor had performed a C-section, you have every right to take legal action to receive financial benefits for the birth defects. Doctors must be held accountable. While no amount of money will restore what should have been with your child’s life, you and your family deserve to have the peace of mind that you will be able to afford the necessary care your child will need.
