Proving My Innocence

One day when I was driving to work, my car was side swiped by another large vehicle. Although I was lucky enough to walk away from the incident, the other drivers weren't as lucky, and one of them actually passed away. Since I wasn't at fault, I wasn't too worried about defending myself, which is why I was shocked to learn that the other drivers were suing me. Fortunately, my accident attorney helped to prove my innocence, which saved me thousands of dollars in the long run. This blog is all about the importance of working with the right legal team and proving your innocence.

Types Of Birth Injuries And How To File A Suit For Each

Having a child is supposed to be one of those highlights of every parent's life. It is NOT supposed to end in tragedy, hardship or grief. If you suspect that your new baby's health and medical problems are the direct result of something gone horribly wrong, you may have a birth injury case on your hands. Here are some types of birth injuries and how to file a suit for each.

Head/Neck/Spine Injuries

A baby is supposed to move into position such that his/her head is facing down into the birthing canal. The baby's face is supposed to be against the back wall of the vagina so that when the baby comes out, gravity can help remove mucus, womb water, and other substances out the baby's nose and mouth.

When the baby decides to come out with his/her face to either side or to the front side of the vagina, the doctors usually try to turn the baby into the face down position as it comes out. This means that the baby's neck and spine may be injured if too much pressure is applied. The baby suffers from subluxation of the vertebrae or nerve damage.

Additionally, if you have a small pelvis and your baby has an enormous head, the doctor may use a vacuum suction device to assist with pulling the baby's head out. When that happens, your baby has a misshapen head, and can suffer from brain damage if too much suction or force is applied. In either of these instances, you can sue the doctor and hospital staff for personal injuries to, and on behalf of, your baby.

Injuries in Utero

There is so much that the medical community does not know about reproduction, the baby in utero, the placenta, the umbilical cord, and drugs. This is because reproductive health is a very new branch of science, and because there are major ethical issues with exposing mother and baby to multiple unknown outcomes in experiments and research.

Even though a doctor may tell you that a prenatal procedure or drug is safe, you may experience problems anyway. Your baby may experience even greater issues as drugs and other toxins cross the placenta and umbilicus. If your baby has clearly suffered from a medication or procedure your doctor said was minimal risk or safe, you can sue your doctor. If the issue was a drug, then you can also sue the pharmaceutical company who made the drug and said it was safe for pregnant mothers to use. Your birth injury lawyer can file both lawsuits for you
