Birth Injury Medical Malpractice | Understanding Birth Injuries
There are a number of factors that are important to know about injuries that occur to babies during the birth process. The most important factor is that you have two years from the time that you knew or reasonably should’ve known that a claim occurred. With a child, that statutory period can be extended to the eighth birthday of the child because babies can’t tell us when something is wrong and sometimes the physicians don’t discover it within that two-year time period. It’s important to – you know your baby better than anybody – to talk to your physicians to find out if it was a difficult labor delivery and you feel like your baby isn’t developing normally – talk to your pediatrician about that. Learn more, and then get your medical records for further evaluation.
