Diagnosing Birth Injuries

Diagnosing Birth Injuries

After a difficult delivery, many parents are left wondering whether their child has suffered a birth injury, and if so, what are their next steps.

While in some situations, it is immediately apparent that your child has suffered harm, other times it may not be possible to make an immediate assement. It may take months or even years to come to the realization that your child is suffering from a type of birth injury.

Some signals to look for include delays in development. If your child is not meeting all of his developmental milestones such as rolling over, sitting up, saying her first words, then something may occurred. However, parents should not try to diagnose an injury on their own. Rather, it is important to consult with a trusted pyhsician. Where it is determined that a birth injury has occured, an experienced San Diego birth injury lawyer can meet with you to discuss your next steps. In certain circumstances it may be possible to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in order to ensure that you and your child obtain the resources necessary to pay for the lifetime of care that the child may need.
