Under Texas medical malpractice laws, that’s the law that covers birth injuries, it might be the nurses. It might be the doctor. Maybe an anesthesiologist was involved. The point is, you won’t know until an experienced medical malpractice lawyer looks at everything that happened while you were under the care of that healthcare team.
Statute of Limitations
The time limits to bring a case is tricky. Technically, your baby, because they’re not an adult, doesn’t have to bring a case right away. You as the parents of the child only have two years. Because some of the recovery is mom and dad’s recovery and some is the baby’s recovery, if you don’t act within two years, your baby may still have a case, but yours is gone.
Just like any other area of malpractice law, birth injury cases need to be acted on quickly; don’t sit and wait. Hire an experienced medical malpractice lawyer; someone who understands Texas law as it applies to birth injuries. Someone who can tell you what your rights are.
In Texas, the way the medical malpractice laws work for birth injuries, is you have to have a law firm that understands and has the resources to hire lifecare planners, rehabilitation experts, and physicians who can make an entire care plan that’s going to cover your baby’s entire life.
Then you need to hire economists to calculate inflation. If your baby has suffered a birth injury in Texas, only an experienced malpractice lawyer will have, not only the ability, but the resources to make sure that the lifelong harm is compensated.
Texas law is on the side of doctors, nurses, and hospitals. I’m not saying they don’t deserve some protection, but they don’t deserve more protection than you and your baby. Unfortunately, because of the way the law here in Texas is, these birth injury cases take a long time. They take a long time because first of all, it takes a long time for you to know exactly what you’re facing.
What’s the future for your baby? These are not quick fix cases. These are long and arduous. You need an experienced birth injury lawyer at your side. Someone who will explain every step of the process and answer every question you have. You’re going to be teamed up for a while.
