For today’s post we will discuss the emotional toll on parents after their baby’s HIE birth injury. This post is in the context of parents speaking with us about doing a birth injury investigation as to the cause of their baby’s traumatic brain injury. With that said, I am going to walk you through the types of emotional toll families share with us and how we help families through this process in the context of a birth injury law.
As I have mentioned in the past, there are professionals out here who can help with these types of problems. At the end of the day, you are not alone in this journey.
The Emotional Toll On Parents After Their Baby’s HIE Birth Injury
When talking to families, especially mothers, one huge emotional toll is having to relive and remember the trauma associated with birth. In addition to the above, mothers will often blame themselves about the end results. Much of the blame game surrounds them thinking there was more they could have done to change the results.
The truth of the matter is that when the cause of the injury is medical malpractice, generally there is not much that mom could have done to prevent the end results. For many families, once we sit down and talk about these issues, they have a better understanding of the process. Having this knowledge can help reassure families as to what truly may have happened.
How A Birth Injury Attorney Can Help…
If a family decides to seek justice from the hospital and medical professionals for causing their baby’s HIE birth injury, and hire an attorney, that attorney and law firm will be by their side throughout the process. To put the issue another way, the family will not be left alone.
The above is extremely important because in this process the family will have to retell their story. Not only will the civil complaint tell some of the story, depositions will allow the parents to tell their story directly. As a side, a deposition is a question-and-answer session. It is important to remember that during the deposition, your attorney will be in the deposition with you. Your attorney will have you prepared for your deposition. In addition, before the process, you will be able to ask any questions you may have regarding the process. Also, your attorney will take care of the legal issues. From naming the correct experts, to working throng discovery, your attorney will be there to help with the emotional toll of everything. Hopefully now you have a better understanding of the issues surrounding the emotional toll on parents after a baby’s HIE birth injury.
