Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension in Newborns (PPHN) is often a birth injury caused by the negligence of the expectant mother's doctor. If you believe that your child's Kentucky birth injury occurred due to your doctor's negligence, you may have rights.
In order to protect your rights to recovery, there are certain steps you need to take that include:
- Do not give up. Your doctor will probably blame your infant's PPHN on other issues like your high blood pressure, diabetes, or anemia; however, if you know that is not true, do not give up without a fight.
- Request your medical records from all of the doctors you saw while you were pregnant, even those including your labor and delivery.
- Consider talking with an experienced Kentucky birth injury lawyer to find out your rights. By providing them with your medical records, they can help you determine if you have a case.
- Do not delay. Remember, time is of the essence since there are statutes of limitations involved.
Although there is never going to be an amount of money you recover that will take away your infant's birth injury, at least you can help serve justice and send a message to doctors that they need to be thorough in their work. When doctors are careless, innocent people like you and your newborn can suffer at their hands.
