What to do after Your Child Suffers a Birth Injury
Philadelphia and Allentown, Pennsylvania and New Jersey
When your child suffers from a birth injury, you may be confused as to what steps to take next. In the face of your child’s suffering as well as increased medical expenses, the period following a birth injury can be emotionally and financially devastating.
The experienced birth injury attorneys in Pennsylvania at Wapner, Newman, Wigrizer, Brecher & Miller are here to help your family during this terribly difficult time.
Steps to Take Following a Birth Injury
The first thing to do following a birth injury in Pennsylvania or New Jersey is to contact the aggressive medical malpractice attorneys at our law firm. Working closely with you from your initial contact, we will assess your potential claim and recommend the best course of action based on your individual circumstances.
If you believe your child’s birth injury was due to medical negligence, it’s important to save all related medical records. This includes documentation related to prenatal treatment, childbirth and post-delivery care.
It is important that you do not try to deal with insurance or healthcare providers on your own. Insurance companies may make settlement offers, but these are often less than the expenses required for medical care alone. Do not sign any settlement offers until consulting with an experienced birth injury attorney.
You will need a knowledgeable birth injury attorney on your side to ensure your greatest chance for recovering the financial compensation you deserve and need for your child’s ongoing care. The medical malpractice attorneys at Wapner, Newman, Wigrizer, Brecher & Miller are prepared to help ensure your family receives the justice you are due.
