You ask an important question. Throughout your pregnancy, you trusted your doctor to provide care for you and your baby. If you had a question, you did not hesitate to ask him. Now that your child has suffered a birth injury, you likely have a lot of questions. You may want to know, for example:
- What went wrong?
- What caused the birth injury?
- What could the doctor have done differently?
- Could the birth injury have been avoided?
- Does the doctor feel any remorse for what happened?
- Will the doctor pay for your child’s injury?
Your questions deserve answers, but if you want to secure a fair financial recovery for your child, you should not contact your doctor directly.
Call a Birth Injury Malpractice Lawyer Instead
If you call the doctor directly and begin asking questions, you are letting the doctor know of your concerns and that you might pursue a legal claim. This information gives the doctor the opportunity to begin planning his defense.
Additionally, many doctors are smart enough to avoid answering your questions because of fear of legal liability. Thus, even if the doctor takes your call, you are unlikely to get the information you need.
Instead of contacting the doctor, you should consider contacting an experienced medical malpractice attorney. While your birth injury lawyer was not present during the delivery of your child, he or she can get answers to all of your questions, and any other questions you might have, in a way that protects your baby’s possible financial recovery.
