What You Should Do if Your Infant is Injured
We trust our doctors and health care providers to do their very best in giving us the care that we need. Unfortunately, even conscientious healthcare providers can fail to meet the standards they are required to meet when caring for you and your child. We are trained to trust our health care providers, but you should trust your instincts and seek professional guidance.
If you suspect that your child has suffered a birth injury, the best thing to do is speak with experienced Atlanta birth injury lawyers as soon as possible. Our team will review your case, determine whether the hospital or doctor was at fault, and help you understand your legal options. If you haven’t already received a diagnosis, it is very likely that we will be able to refer you to a doctor who can give you expert medical advice. Your lawyer can also help you gather the evidence you will need to make your claim and build the strongest possible case.
