The birth of a child is supposed to be one of the happiest days in your life. However, malpractice in the delivery room can turn a wonderful occasion into a lifelong tragedy.
A birth defect can lead to permanent problems which include cerebral palsy, emotional distress and financial burdens. There are many reasons a birth defect can happen - the doctor's improper use of forceps or suction in delivery, delaying a caesarean section delivery, or the doctor's failure to provide quality pre-natal care.
A birth defect can cost a family money and heartache for the rest of the child's life. If your child was born with a birth defect as a result of a medical professional's negligence, contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who has experience in handling birth injury cases. A proper settlement is important because the settlement money can be used to provide for your child throughout his or her life.
