Determining Liability For A Child’s Injury

When your child is injured during the birthing process, harmed by medical negligence or seriously hurt in an accident, it can be difficult to know where to turn. It is important to seek help from a lawyer who has experience handling complex medical malpractice and personal injury claims.

At the law firm of The McDonough Law Office, our attorneys bring more than 60 years of experience to legal matters concerning injuries to children. Our firm’s founding attorney is also a licensed medical doctor, giving us unique insight into how medical malpractice cases should be approached.

Holding All Negligent Parties Accountable

When your child has suffered a birth injury or has been injured due to medical malpractice, there may be multiple liable parties. Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals may have been negligent. The hospital or care facility itself may share some liability for employing the negligent actors or for failing to maintain proper facilities. If the injury was caused in part by some medications, the pharmaceutical company may be held liable. In addition, if a faulty medical device contributed to the injury, you may have a claim against the product manufacturer.

If a catastrophic accident, such as a truck accident, injured your child you may have a personal injury claim against multiple parties. The truck driver may have been at fault. However, the driver’s employer may also share some liability. If a component on the truck failed to perform as expected, you may also have a product liability claim. In every case, our legal team will thoroughly review the circumstances surrounding the accident in order to ensure that all negligent parties are held accountable for their actions.
