What can devastate a parent more than learning that a child has suffered a brain injury? Perhaps only one thing can make it worse: knowing that a trusted doctor or nurse was responsible for the brain injury and knowing that it didn’t have to happen. In that case, parents sometimes must consider hiring a medical malpractice lawyer, to work on providing the financial resources for their child’s long-term care.
