How can I find out whether the doctor is responsible for my baby’s injury during labor?
We’re often asked, “How can I know if the doctor or my doctor is responsible for my baby’s injury that occurred to me here in Florida?” Injuries to babies during the actual labor and delivery itself or after a child is delivered, are sometimes the most severe types of injury cases that we handle. We’ve been privileged to represent families and made sure that they received the full compensation that they are entitled to in order to make sure that their child is fully taken care of over their entire lifetime. What does this all involve?
They’re complicated cases because they usually involve hundreds, if not thousands, of pages of medical records. When someone contacts our office and says that their child either was severely injured or maybe even tragically died, the first thing we do is we say, “Look, we’re going to have to analyze the medical records.” We’re going to analyze those records with experts in the medical field that have excellent qualifications. In fact, we want to make sure that our experts that analyze those cases have great backgrounds, are highly educated, sterling reputation, and are brilliant in terms of what they do. If we’re investigating a claim, we want to make sure that it is a valid claim.
These cases can be very emotionally charged and can have life-long implications, and we want to make sure that, in the sense of what the medicine is, we have sufficient evidence or proof that there was a violation or deviation in the standard of care. If there’s no such proof that’s available, then we’re going to tell you what that news is, even if it’s difficult news to handle and we’re not going to pursue the claim. We’re only going to pursue a meritorious claim. If there is such a claim, then we will pursue it and we will pursue it fully until you and your family receive the full amount of compensation that you’re entitled to.
These are complicated cases that sometimes take several years, but we here at Perenich Law Injury Attorneys have been around for many years, and we’re going to be around a lot longer. We’re going to be here to represent you and your family to make sure that you truly get all the compensation that you deserve if you or a family member has been a victim of a medical malpractice, especially if it involved a child or a baby that has sustained very serious injuries.
