Texas Birth Injury Lawyers

Being a parent can simultaneously be one of the most challenging and rewarding jobs a person can undertake. Providing for your child to make sure that they’re happy, healthy, and protected is always a priority. However, finding out that your child suffered a birth injury can make their future seem very uncertain. You may be wondering how to meet their special care needs, which can include multiple types of treatment and therapies. Your child may also face unique physical, emotional, and social challenges that can be difficult to overcome without the right support.

Dealing with your child’s birth injury diagnosis, even with strong and loving family support, can be difficult to navigate. You may constantly wonder what exactly caused your child’s birth injury, and if anything could have been done to prevent it. If you suspect that medical malpractice occurred during your labor or delivery, speaking with a Texas birth injury lawyer can help you understand what your options are to obtain justice on behalf of your child.

Do I have a case?

There are unfortunately many labor and delivery situations in which medical negligence or malpractice can occur that results in someone’s child suffering an injury. Many of the families that our lawyers have had the privilege to work with experienced one or more of the following conditions during labor and/or delivery:

If you cannot relate your situation to the conditions listed above, please know that this is by no means a complete list. Every person’s case and child will be different. Reach out to us and tell us your story – we’re here to listen compassionately, investigate the details of your case, and discuss it with you.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit?

Navigating a birth injury can be difficult, but understanding your legal options shouldn’t be. One of the most important things to keep in mind when pursuing a lawsuit is that you have a time limit to file your case. It’s called the statute of limitations, and it differs for each state. It can also differ depending on what kind of facility your labor and delivery took place in. If you suspect malpractice occurred during birth, it’s important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. A Texas birth injury attorney can help you understand the statute of limitations and make sure that you file your suit in time.
