Why Hire A Personal Injury Attorney For Your Birth Injury


A birth injury can occur when a mother is delivering a baby. Perhaps the baby got injured during delivery, or the mother experienced more than normal tearing or other injuries during the delivery process. A birth injury should be taken seriously and even if a hospital has taken responsibility for what has happened and has made things right and paid for your medical costs, you may still need to be compensated for your care. 

On the other hand, a birth injury is also likely to result in just an injury and no real compensation at all. Hospitals are highly protected by malpractice attorneys for both their business and the doctors and other staff that work in the facilities. Doctors who deliver babies and work in other areas of the hospital are also likely to have malpractice attorneys as well. This means that if you have a birth injury, you are going to have to have a legal battle on your hands to prove what happened, why it happened, and who or what entity is at fault.

Don't just accept that things are the way they are and you have been fully compensated or won't be compensated at all for your birth injury. Yes, accidents happen, but you may have a case that can give you more fair compensation. You have rights, and a personal injury attorney can help you.

Here are reasons to hire a personal injury attorney for your birth injury.

They can help you determine if you have a case

changing a child's last name after a divorce

When I began the divorce process, I knew that I wanted to change my name back to my maiden name. I no longer wanted to be associated with the family name of the man that I was divorcing. The problem was, I have three kids that all had their father's name. I wanted to know if I would be able to change their last names to my maiden name rather than having them carry that family's name for the rest of their lives. I found out a lot about what it would take and began working to create this blog to help other women wanting to do the same thing.
