Have Birth Problems? Let Birth Injury Guide Help You

By Mommy Donna and Kib - September 19, 2021

Welcoming the baby is one of the greatest and most-anticipated events in the family. A birth of a baby means that the family is growing, that there is a new life that God has given them. The only thing that parents wish for their babies is that they will be born perfectly (without birth defects, born full-term, no health problems). 

However, that is not the case all the time.

There are cases that some babies are born with birth defects resulting from negligence. We call it birth injury. In the United States, in every 1,000 babies born, 6-8 of them have birth injuries. 

Birth injury can be caused by physical harm or untreated illnesses around the time of baby's birth. These injuries may require treatment to improve the quality of life of the baby, but the more severe injuries may cause long-term effects, such as physical and/or mental disabilities. Some of the common birth injuries are: brain damage, cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy, newborn jaundice, vacuum extraction complications, kernicterus, hypoxic ischemic encephalopatomy (HIE), intrauterine fetal demise, newborn cephalohematoma, and spinal cord injuries. There are still lots of types of birth injuries, you may find it HERE.

If the parents suspect that the cause of their baby's defects are caused by medical malpractice, they can file legal charges against their attending physicians.

Legal clinics such as Birth Injury Guide based in Houston, Texas are ready to assist families who think their baby was severely injured at the time of birth. Most of the time, parents do not know where to start because they do not know that they can even do that. Birth Injury Guide's website has very comprehensive information for parents which includes a list of birth injuries, samples of birth injuries cases in the United States and Canada, and list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) to help parents to know the basic things about filing a birth injury case.

The good thing about Birth Injury Guide is that they only charge their clients when a settlement or verdict has been done, not unlike in other legal firms that lawyers ask for an upfront fee before they will do something about the case. 

Apart from the information about birth injuries, the Birth Injury Guide has other resources that can be beneficial for parents. They have resources for finding support groups if families need to be connected with other families with similar cases such as theirs, information about the government services that they can avail, among others. 

Visit Birth Injury Guide's website to educate yourself more about birth injuries. If you happen to know anyone who needs legal help too, you may tell them about Birth Injury Guide as they give free consultation.

Always stay healthy, especially in this time of COVID-19 pandemic!
