Can You Sue for a Birth Injury?

As a mother or father, the only thing worse than knowing your baby has suffered injuries during the delivery process is knowing that they were completely preventable. 

To-be parents everywhere put their faith in the hands of medical professionals to help them have a safe delivery process. Tragically, mistakes can happen. Other times, however, it’s less about making a mistake than a genuine lapse in professional medical judgement and standards of care. 

When the negligence of a medical professional caused your newborn’s injuries, you’re well within your rights to demand fair compensation. Learn more below, and don’t forget to contact a personal injury lawyer for help with your claim.

Examples of Birth Injuries Caused by Negligence

When doctors, nurses, or other medical professionals make careless mistakes, the impact can be life-changing for those affected. 

Medical negligence is what the law defines as care that fails to meet the standards of care set by the medical profession, leading to injury or death in the patient. 

In the context of birth, medical negligence can lead to many specific types of injuries. 

Some of these include:

When your baby is hurt by the carelessness of a medical professional, it can feel totally overwhelming. The good news is that with the compensation from a birth injury settlement, you can pay for losses or damages your child has suffered and even begin to restore a measure of hope for your family. 

Compensation Available in a Birth Injury Claim

What kind of compensation is available in a birth injury claim?

Generally, settlement money is taken from two different sources: economic and non-economic damages. 

The primary example of an economic damage seen in birth injury lawsuits are medical bills related to the birth injury. These could include the cost of therapy, medicine, surgery, or any other related medical costs. 

Some examples of non-economic damages could include:

  • Emotional damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering

Suing or filing a claim for your child’s birth injury complications is possible with the help of an experienced attorney.
