A birth injury is defined as a physical injury or trauma sustained by a newborn child (sometimes referred to as a “neonate”) during labor and delivery. Depending upon the severity, birth injuries can result in the need for lifelong medical treatment and/or rehabilitation. The financial implications from a birth injury can be astronomical, while the emotional toll on a family is immeasurable. If a doctor, nurse or hospital caused an injury to your child as a result of negligence, you need a birth injury lawyer in Michigan that will fight for justice.
Damages suffered by the infant and his/her family are often devastating. They may include past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, disability, loss of a normal life and even loss of future earnings depending on the type of injury suffered.
In terms of the law, every avenue must be addressed to protect your child’s health and future. Johnson Law has specialized experts in birth injury law to ensure that you and your family receive the compensation you deserve and are owed under the law.
