The complications that can arise from birth injuries are as varied as they are severe. Any negligent or reckless care of the medical staff is likely to put both the mother and child in serious danger.
We can build your case and defend your rights for all sorts of Atlanta birth injury claims, including but not limited to:
Many birth injuries are immediately apparent, requiring emergency intervention and neonatal intensive care, but others will not manifest for weeks, months or years after delivery. Signs to watch for include seizures, a loose or floppy appearance, especially in the limbs, mental retardation and significant delays in development. Every child grows at a unique rate, but if your child is considerably late in meeting widely accepted benchmarks for rolling over, sitting upright, learning to crawl or beginning to walk, it is advisable to seek a medical examination to learn whether a birth injury is the cause.
When you have any type of evidence that your child's condition is the result of a birth injury, contact us as soon as possible. There is a statute of limitations for taking legal action to recover compensation, and it is vital to begin work on your claim while it is still possible.
There is simply no excuse for negligence that leads to serious harm to the mother and her child. The entire situation worsens when insurance companies and the hospital staff tries to avoid responsibility for the injuries and the steep costs of recovery fall upon you. At The Tolson Firm, LLC, our Atlanta birth injury lawyers understand that your right to receive safe medical practices from trusted physicians must be protected and honored.
