South Bay Birth Injury Attorney
Compensation for Birth Injuries in the South Bay
Learning that your child suffered an injury at birth can be one of the most emotionally devastating experiences a parent will ever face. Beyond the initial upset of knowing that your baby has been hurt, you now realize that he or she may never be able to enjoy all that life has to offer. Further, an injury which results in a condition such as Erb's palsy or cerebral palsy may leave your child with a disability that makes it difficult or impossible to work and achieve financial independence. In addition to the costs of lost future income, you also have to take into account the fact that your child may require extensive ongoing medical treatment, with expenses that could range into the tens of thousands of dollars per year.
Fortunately, you may have a way to recover financial compensation to offset these costs and to help your child enjoy the highest possible standard of living. A South Bay personal injury attorney from Layfield & Wallace, APC might be able to help you file a medical malpractice claim with the goal of obtaining compensation to pay for your child's medical expenses, lost income and pain, suffering and emotional distress. In addition, taking legal action makes it possible for you to hold the doctor accountable for his or her negligence, and by doing so you could potentially protect other families from suffering a similar tragedy.
