Rob Rosenthal:

Is it always obvious when a birth injury has occurred? We ask Pennsylvania attorney Nancy Winkler for this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.

Nancy Winkler:

We’ve had numerous cases over the course of years in which it wasn't immediately recognizable. They knew that there was a difficult delivery. There were some emergent circumstances, but they didn't quite know, because the delay for the child did not manifest itself until some time later, at which time the family sought counsel to determine whether there was in fact neglect that caused the harm to the baby. Speak with your doctors and try and find out what they say has happened; gather the medical records if you're able to; and then seek counsel who can help you to gather the medical records if you're unable to do so yourself.
