Birth Injury Malpractice Lawsuit Help

When a doctor, nurse or other medical services provider makes a mistake during labor or delivery, and that mistake results in an injury to the child or the mother, a birth injury has occurred. If the birth injury is due to the doctor’s failure to perform up to the accepted standard of care under the circumstances, negligence may have occurred and a birth injury lawsuit can be filed on behalf of the injured child. A mother who suffers an injury as a result of a doctor’s negligence during her prenatal care is also entitled to file a birth injury lawsuit.

The most common types of birth injuries are those which cause brain damage or cerebral palsy, paralysis, brachial plexus or Erb’s palsy, or other nerve damage, orthopedic injury, spinal chord injury or another type of permanent disability. Birth defects may also be caused by a medication, such as Depakote, taken by the mother during pregnancy.

Establishing Medical Malpractice and Recovering Compensation for a Birth Injury

Depending on the severity of the injury, your child may require costly medical care, physical therapy, speech therapy, adaptive equipment, and special assistance at school.

Establishing medical malpractice requires a careful review of your medical records, and the supporting opinion of an expert that a deviation from the standard of care has occurred. In addition, it will be necessary to prove that the deviation caused, or resulted in the specific birth injury.
