According to government-funded studies, approximately 30 percent of birth injuries are preventable. This is heartbreaking to consider. To make matters worse, according to the Department of Health and Human Services, communication errors among hospital staff members are the most common reason for those injuries.
If you recently had a baby who suffered from an injury during the birthing process, know that there is someone you can turn to for guidance on your legal rights. Aaron Woods of Woods Law KC has dedicated thirty years of professional life to speaking up for others who aren’t able to speak up for themselves. He has worked with heartbroken parents before, and he would be happy to have a conversation with you to discuss your choices on how to proceed.
We know that most hospital employees are competent professionals, and you may not relish the idea of bringing suit against a medical staff that treated you kindly. But the fact remains that you or your baby may have suffered from devastating consequences as a result of the actions of the hospital staff. You and your child deserve to be compensated for this.
The most common birth injuries resulting from negligence are brachial plexus injuries, facial paralysis, brain injuries, fractures, cephalohematoma, or caput succedaneum. If you are the parent of a child who suffered from one of these injuries, contact the staff of Woods Law KC today.
