If you believe that your child has suffered a birth injury, it is critical to hire an attorney that specifically handles birth injury and birth trauma cases. Choosing a specialized birth injury attorney for your case is crucial not only for navigating the medical and legal complexity of your case but also for your general well-being throughout what may seem like a stressful litigation period. The Detroit, Michigan birth injury attorneys at Reiter & Walsh, PC will briefly discuss a few reasons why it is important to choose an attorney that specifically handles birth injury cases for your case.
The Importance of Choosing an Attorney Who Focuses Only on Birth Injury
Compared to general personal injury attorneys who handle dog bites and auto accidents, birth injury attorneys only handle cases specific to the complications and scenarios surrounding birth injuries and birth trauma. That means they have more knowledge and experience with these specific types of cases. Because these cases generally involve damages that last a lifetime, birth injury attorneys are specialists on all of the issues that cause or contribute to brain damage, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy and fetal oxygen deprivation, and/or cerebral palsy.
Birth injury attorneys stay current on the new medical literature and publications pertaining to obstetrics and gynecology, neurology and neuroradiology. They also attend conferences and lectures pertaining to birth trauma, consult with the top experts in the country who work in the field of birth trauma, and belong to important communities of legal and medical professionals. With many years of experience, birth injury attorneys are knowledgeable and equipped to handle highly complex and specific cases from start to finish. They are empathetic to the questions and needs of families and children with special needs.
