Baby developmental delay may be the result of medical negligence. Many times this occurs at birth. Contact a Louisville birth injury lawyer, who can determine if you have the right to file a claim against a doctor or another healthcare provider.
Treatment for baby developmental delay can be costly, depending on the specifics. It can also depend on whether the delay is mild or severe.
Medical Negligence: Treatment for Baby Developmental Delay
Here are some of the treatments that may be able to address developmental delays:
- speech/language pathology;
- physical therapy;
- special educational services;
- occupational therapy;
- behavioral therapy; and
- various medication.
Some of these treatments may be required short-term but others may be necessary throughout your child’s life, and costs can quickly escalate. However, these costs may be recoverable, along with other damages, if the developmental delay was caused by the negligence of a doctor or another healthcare provider.
If a development delay appears to be an indication of medical negligence and your child has suffered serious injuries, you may be able to file a claim. To learn what your rights are, speak with a Louisville birth injury lawyer as soon as possible.
