Shreveport Birth Injury Attorney
Pursuing Justice for Victims of Negligence Across Louisiana
Pregnancy is a time of joy and anticipation which culminates with labor and delivery. Labor is a time of hard work for both mother and child, especially if the pregnancy has not been well managed. During a pregnancy it is important to have the best of prenatal care to ensure the mother and child are in the best of health, although this is not always possible.
Due to the stressful nature of the birth process, it is not unusual for a baby to experience some injuries such as minor bruising which generally heals quickly. When severe permanent injuries occur family members usually feel a need to find out why and may not be satisfied with the initial answers they get. Many new parents turn to an injury attorney for assistance in determining how their child was injured and if the injury was preventable.

Obtaining Rightful Compensation for Your Child's Injuries
Infections, non-optimum physical conditions and illnesses which occur in the mother during pregnancy can have an effect on the fetus. When a doctor or nurse fails to provide the attention and medical care which meets professional standards during labor or delivery, the result may be a severe birth injury. A child suffering from a serious birth injury often requires frequent hospitalization, surgical procedures, ongoing medical attention, and physical or other therapy. Your child may have other special needs as well.
The high cost of continual medical care and specialized services can outstrip the average family's financial resources even with assistance from other family members. An experienced birth injury lawyer at our firm can review your child's case to determine if your child's injuries were preventable or due to negligence. It is important to act quickly as the statute of limitations allows only one year in which to file a claim for damages.
