LEGAL REPRESENTATION FOR BIRTH INJURY CASES IN GULFPORT, LONG BEACH, BILOXI AND PASCAGOULA

 

Doctors and medical staff who specialize in delivering infants are obligated to maintain a high standard of care in their work. There are several duties they possess that must be carried out precisely and efficiently, including monitoring the vital signs of the mother and the infant, being aware of symptoms that might indicate distress, and resolving problems with delivery, such as the infant facing the wrong direction.

When these doctors or staff fail to follow accepted procedure, or commit medical negligence of any kind, they can be held fully liable for any injuries that occur in the mother or child as a result. They may be required to pay for the damages sustained by the victims, including those related to further medical treatment, rehabilitative therapy, pain and suffering, or lost wages. If you or your child has been injured during birth, it is crucial that you contact an Ocean Springs personal injury lawyer at Denham Law Firm, PLLC. Our experienced legal team will conduct a thorough investigation of your case in an effort to gather evidence and establish fault. Using the evidence we obtain, we will file a claim for personal injury compensation on your behalf, or take legal action against the physician, medical facility or other liable party.
