Pursuing mental anguish damages after negligent birth injuries

Aside from the death of a newborn, nothing is more traumatic to parents than learning their child has suffered birth injuries due to medical provider negligence. To say that these situations cause parents to suffer extreme mental anguish is a huge understatement. As parents ourselves, we have no trouble understanding why these parents want to bring these negligent health care providers to justice.

You may already know that you can seek economic damages if your child suffers from preventable birth injuries. This is your right as a parent and any compensation acquired from legal action can ensure your injured child receives the right medical treatment. Pursuing damages for pain and suffering, however, is a different matter altogether.

In the state of Texas, it is typically difficult for parents to pursue noneconomic damages in civil cases. In simpler terms, this means it might be hard to sue a doctor for mental anguish. However, we want you to know that it is still a possibility. With the right legal representation, it is possible to make a good case for mental anguish damages by showing the court how you and your family suffered in the wake of your baby's birth injuries.

The out-of-pocket expenses involved with caring for injured newborns are usually significant. You will need all the financial resources you can find to provide the level of care your child deserves. This is why we often encourage parents to seek as much compensation as is possible after such an incident. Adding mental anguish damages to your case when applicable is a good way to maximize your compensation.

You can learn more about pursuing legal action in the aftermath of negligent birth injuries by reaching out to our law firm. We also offer information on these and other birth injury topics in our blog and on our website's other pages.
