I was pregnant with my son perfectly healthy, every app his sonogram and checkups for heartbeat were perfect. I went to the er at 36 weeks and had an emergency c section, my son was born with hydrops.
I am so sorry to hear about this situation with your son. This should have most likely been diagnosed and treated before he was born.

That is why choosing and attorney with significant Texas medical malpractice experience is important.See question

due to tort laws most dont even want to look at it.
If you have an attorney who is reviewing your case and willing to invest funds to retain an expert to review the medical records, that indicates that the attorney believes that your potential case may have merit. For credible medical experts, though, the fact that they are willing to be compensated to review medical records on behalf of an attorney does not, in and of itself, provide any indication of what that expert's opinion may be.See question
Medical malpractice case for a child dying from neonatal respiratory distress complicated by hepatic necrosis due to meconium stained aspiration
This process can take months from the beginning of the case--medical malpractice cases are record and expert intensive, which means that they take considerable time and effort to develop. Acquiring all medical records from the facilities and doctors usually takes two months. Then the records need to be organized by the law office before being sent to an expert. Once an expert agrees to review the records, it depends on that expert's schedule, but normally it takes at least one month to obtain a verbal opinion. If the verbal opinion is favorable, then it takes additional time to have that reduced to a written report, which is required by Texas law, shortly after the suit is filed. This complicated process demonstrates a client's wisdom in selecting an attorney with extensive experience in prosecuting medical malpractice lawsuits.See question
