Mom continue to advocate for your baby despite a birth injury. Are you wondering what I am getting at in this question? I’ll put the question another way. What can mothers and families do if they have contacted a birth injury attorney, during the pendency of the investigation and litigation? Because this can be a serious concern for some families, they forgo help with their baby’s future challenges.
One of the main focuses of this birth injury educational article is to help you, the reader, understand what you can do while a birth injury case moves forward, and how this action will be beneficial to your baby, regardless of whether you speak with a birth injury attorney or not.
WHY DO SOME FAMILIES REFUSE TO REACH OUT TO A BIRTH INJURY ATTORNEY?
Before talking on the power of advocating for your baby, another matter of importance is why some families, even though serious help for their baby is needed, refuse to reach out to birth injury attorneys for help. It has been my experience, after talking with mothers who initially wanted nothing to do with an attorney, that this was the case because they knew nothing about the process. Knowing nothing about the process lead to intimidation, thus preventing them from initially moving forward.
Proving a birth injury case involves the use of medical experts, who will give an opinion as to the standard of care and whether your doctor fell below the standard of care, causing the injury. These experts will review mother and baby’s records, along with other pertinent information to come to these conclusions. If no experts will give these types of opinions, you will more than likely not be successful with your case.
MOM CONTINUE TO ADVOCATE FOR YOUR BABY...
If you worry about the information outlined in the above paragraph regarding the legal issues, you can become overwhelmed. Remember, when you hire a birth injury attorney, these are the issues that the attorney/law firm have domain over.
I like to advise mothers, and families to continue to advocate on behalf of their baby in the form of staying current with their baby’s treatment and other medical issues. As I told a mother, mom continue to advocate for your baby despite a brain injury.
The reason I suggest this is because it allows the parents to be 100% focused on their baby’s medical care, without having to “worry” about the legal issues.
