Having your infant suffer from a birth injury is an unbelievably tragic event. If this has occurred in your family, you most likely feel shocked, scared, and unsure of what to do next.

A birth injury, also known as birth trauma, is defined as any wound that a baby receives during the birthing process. There are many instances that can result in a birth injury, including the negligence of the medical team providing care to the mother and child. One mistake during the birthing process can have detrimental consequences for the child.

Birth Injury Cases in the State of GeorgiaDepending on the severity of the injury, it may have an effect on the child for the rest of his or her life. If your baby was injured due to the negligent act of a medical professional, you have the right to take legal action.

Not only is a birth injury emotionally traumatic, it can also create a financial burden on the family. The cost of treatment for the infant after the injury can prove very costly. In some cases, long-term, possibly even lifelong care may be required. Filing a birth injury case may award you compensation to cover these costs. This is why it is crucial to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. Medical malpractice cases are time sensitive, and the sooner action is taken, the better it is for your case.

In the state of Georgia, there is a two-year statute of limitations on birth injury cases. You must file your claim within two years of the incident that lead to the injury. In the event that the injury does not become evident until later on, you are granted five years to file.

As with any medical malpractice case, in the case of a birth injury, it is essential to act quickly. Our lawyers will start as soon as possible and conduct a thorough investigation into the incident that resulted in your baby’s injury. They will determine what party is at fault and will collect the necessary evidence to provide in court.
