Birth injury cases are especially challenging due to their medical nature. Some injuries may not become fully apparent until years after labor and delivery. Understanding the difference between a birth injury and a birth defect is essential, as is knowing the standard of care all medical professionals are held to. An experienced birth injury lawyer can use medical documents and expert witnesses to prove that medical negligence played a role in birth-related trauma. They can also calculate how much your case is worth by factoring in the past and future cost of medical care, as well as non-economic damages like pain and suffering.
