A birth injury is far different from a birth defect. A birth defect is usually hereditary or genetic in nature, while a birth injury occurs because of medical mistakes made before, during, and after delivery. The key is that birth injuries are usually avoidable, and your child would have likely developed normally had the incident not occurred.
In these situations, there’s no amount of money that can turn back the damage and make your child well, but a birth injury lawsuit can help you financially handle the cost of your child’s special needs moving forward. Together with our partner attorneys, Goldwater Law Firm has helped parents all over the nation just like you. Please know that we’re here for you and ready to help demand justice for the medical mistakes committed against your child.
