Lawyers protecting your baby’s future
There is nothing more exciting than welcoming a new baby into your family. The doctors and nurses responsible for bringing lives into the world go through intensive training in preparation for any situation they face to keep babies safe. Healthcare professionals causing injury to mothers or babies as a result of negligence or reckless behavior should be held accountable. At McCann & Wall, LLC, our Wilmington birth injury lawyers aggressively litigate on behalf of your child. Trust our decades of knowledge and experience to see you through a difficult, complex legal matter.
Birth injuries and medical malpractice
The foundation for a medical malpractice lawsuit is established when a medical professional fails to act in a way that a reasonable professional would act in the same situation. There are clearly established best practices to ensure that your child is brought into the world safely. The testimony from board certified experts goes a long way in these cases towards persuading juries that medical negligence is the cause of harm. Our Wilmington birth injury attorneys bring in leading experts to testify about how your doctor’s decisions led to your baby’s injuries.
Types of harms that may suggest that your baby’s injuries were caused by medical malpractice
Doctors and nurses are trained to take caution to prevent certain types of birth injuries from occurring. There are some specific injuries commonly caused by doctors making bad decisions during labor that suggest that medical malpractice has occurred. Not every birth injury can be attributed to medical negligence. Our experienced Wilmington birth injury lawyers carefully go through your medical records to evaluate whether moving forward with a medical malpractice lawsuit is in your best interest. Your child may be able to recover compensation for all past and future medical costs, as well as compensation for the emotional distress your child endures during what should be the happiest time of their life.
