After nine months of anxiously awaiting the arrival of your child, you may feel like your hopes and dreams were shattered after realizing your baby may have suffered a birth injury. In order to determine if your newborn was injured by the negligence of a physician in Kentucky, there are some symptoms you can watch for.

Some birth injury symptoms that you may be able to notice include stiff limbs, poor muscle control, unresponsiveness, deformities, paralysis and more. If you observe any of these symptoms in the hours, days and weeks after your child’s birth, you need to tell your baby’s doctor immediately. A doctor can run tests to determine if your son or daughter suffered from cerebral palsy, erb’s palsy, or shoulder dystocia. By getting an early diagnosis, you will be able to get your child the necessary treatment that he or she needs.

Because birth injury cases can be complex and insurance companies don’t want to pay what claims are worth, make sure you have a birth injury lawyer on your side. An attorney at Gray and White can help you get the most money possible in order to give your child the most comfortable life possible.
