In Louisiana and throughout the United States, many families have endured great suffering due to medical negligence. Birth injuries, in particular, often have serious and long-lasting effects. In fact, sometimes injured infants who survive remain in need of daily assistance simply to function for the rest of their lives.
Having a baby is typically an exciting and joyful experience. When a doctor or nurse is negligent in his or her professional duties, the results can be utterly devastating. What was meant to be a happy time, may quickly become a tragedy.
Many different factors can lead to serious birth injuries. Some doctors fail to recognize potentially dangerous conditions in mothers, resulting in emergency situations arising during labor and delivery. Others commit errors during the actual birthing process that can cause grave harm to both infants and their mothers.
When birth injuries have occurred, suffering families may wonder what can be done to seek accountability against any and all parties deemed responsible. One way to address this type of situation is to file a medical malpractice claim in a civil court. In fact, Gainsburgh, Benjamin, David, Meunier & Warshauer, L.L.C., has guided many clients in Louisiana through the process of seeking maximum compensation for damages done. While such litigation can never bring about any sort of physical healing, and certainly can not replace the loss of a loved one who has died, a monetary judgment against negligent parties can at least provide a means for alleviating financial burdens that may be connected to the situation.
