When a Kentucky birth injury happens to your infant during the labor and delivery process, you may not know what to do and where to turn. Not only does your baby suffer the physical complications of a Kentucky birth injury, but you and your family also suffer emotionally and financially.
Although you may be paralyzed by sadness, you need to be proactive after finding out that your newborn suffered an injury at the hands of a negligent Kentucky doctor. There is no time to waste because you will need:
- The best medical care so that your infant will hopefully make a recovery from the birth injury.
- To possibly pursue a medical malpractice claim for the Kentucky birth injury against the negligent parties involved.
- Financial support and compensation for medical bills, ongoing medical care, pain and suffering, emotional distress, wrongful death and more.
When a doctor or other health care worker misuses medical instruments during your labor and delivery, fails to monitor you correctly, or delays a cesarean, many types of Kentucky birth injuries can occur. If the doctor doesn't admit to causing your infant harm, how do you prove that their mistakes caused your baby's birth injury?
Since Kentucky medical malpractice cases involving birth injuries can be complicated, it would be wise to consult with an attorney who handles this kind of law. A Kentucky birth injury attorney will have to investigate your case and prove that the doctor's actions led to your infant's injury.
