Birth Injury Resources for Families

In the state of Georgia, families struggling with the consequences of birth injury may find help through Babies Can’t Wait, a program designed to provide resources for families dealing with developmental delays and similar issues surrounding birth injury. In addition to this option, Medicaid offers resources for families dealing with a birth injury, as do several local, statewide, and national nonprofits.

Midwives and Birth Injury

Midwives perform many useful and important functions. Particularly for families who are interested in more “natural” birthing options, a midwife can be an important addition to the labor and delivery team. But it is important to remember that, despite training in delivery and nursing, the majority of midwives are not physicians – and are neither qualified nor trained to deal with certain high-risk issues that can arise during labor and delivery.

This can make it dangerous to rely on a midwife alone, both for the mother and the baby.

Failure to Investigate Claims of Medical Negligence

Medical negligence, more commonly known as medical malpractice, occurs when a healthcare provider fails in his or her duty to the patient. This may come in the form of a delayed diagnosis, surgical error, improper medication, or a host of other serious and potentially deadly issues. If you have been the victim of medical negligence, Watkins, Lourie, Roll & Chance is here to help.
