There's liable to be several responsible in your malpractice case

Welcoming a new baby into the world has to be one of the greatest moments life has to offer. Maryland parents are often excited, as well as a little worried when a mother is going through labor and delivery at a hospital. Even if they thoroughly researched all available options, and chose the hospital that best suited their needs and goals, parents must place a certain amount of trust in health care providers and medical facilities regarding an expectant mother's safety and the safety of her child.

Sadly, medical malpractice incidents often occur during childbirth. When what was expected to be a joyful occasion becomes a devastating event, parents are often left feeling angry, upset and betrayed. One of the questions parents of babies injured during childbirth often ask is: Who is liable for our child's injuries?

Possible sources of medical malpractice liabilities

If you think about it, you likely came in contact with many different medical staff members from the moment you walked into the hospital in labor to the time you held your baby in your arms. If something went wrong, it's crucial to remember as many details as possible of the events leading up to your child's birth. One or more of the following people may be deemed negligent in certain circumstances:

  • nurses
  • anesthesiologists
  • doctors
  • surgeons
  • radiologists

In addition to these medical professionals, pharmaceutical companies and hospitals themselves are often listed as defendants in medical malpractice claims. Although you'd never want to relive the events that caused your child injury, it's crucial to identify any and all possible sources of liability if you plan to seek justice on your baby's behalf.

Living through the aftermath of a severe birth injury

Whether your child's prognosis includes a full recovery, or he or she will need daily living assistance for the rest of his or her life, as a parent, you will obviously face many challenges along the way. There are many resources available to help those in your situation. Knowing where to turn for help is often key to obtaining the best possible outcome.

An experienced personal injury attorney is one of the greatest assets available to a concerned Maryland parent whose child was injured due to medical negligence during birth. Since the burden of proof in a personal injury claim lies with the plaintiff, it's often helpful to act alongside an advocate who's fully prepared to aggressively litigate your case.
