Take Immediate Action in Birth Injury Cases

Our attorneys explain what to do

If your child was born with a birth injury, we realize your family needs time to deal with everything associated with such a traumatic event - from your child's physical needs to your family's emotional well-being.

But it's important to understand that you need to take legal action soon for many reasons. Otherwise, your family could miss out on what might be your only opportunity to obtain the financial compensation your family needs and deserves for your child's injury or illness.

Why immediate action matters

There are several reasons why you should take legal action right away if you see symptoms that indicate that your child has cerebral palsy or another type of birth injury:

  • Physical evidence - Bringing in proper evidence of malpractice or negligence is essential for any successful childbirth injury claim. However, lengthy delays can result in the loss of critical evidence needed to build a strong case.
  • Witness recollection - The reality is that everyone's memory of any event will deteriorate with the passing of time. Especially for the medical professionals who handle so many births and other medical scenarios in the course of a day's work, they may forget the key details we need.
  • Statute of limitations - Every state has different time limits, but it is important to know that if you delay too long before bringing a claim, the statute of limitations could run and you could lose your legal right to obtain the compensation you deserve.
