Few healthcare injuries are as traumatic as a birth injury. They can turn a miraculous event into a nightmare. Some birth injuries are unavoidable, but there are still many that are preventable and can have a lasting impact on the life of your child. While it’s impossible to compensate for the sort of losses that can come from the lost miracle of healthy childbirth, you may be eligible for compensation to help with recovery costs. A personal injury lawyer can help you know if your specific circumstance is eligible for a lawsuit.
A birth injury happens when a baby suffers harm near or during the time of birth. In the case of a birth injury lawsuit, it refers to damage that occurred because of the negligence of a caregiver or a healthcare organization. If medical professionals fail to address any suspected issues that arise from the very beginning of the pregnancy, it can cause serious health issues. A personal injury lawyer may be able to help you get the compensation that you deserve.
The symptoms of birth injury will vary depending on individual circumstances. For example, some symptoms won’t become evident until a child is enrolled in school, whereas others may be clear during or near the time of birth. Some examples include:
- Harm from delivery mediation or tools
- Infant mishandling
- Brain Injuries
- Muscle-related injuries
- Lack of oxygen
- Breech delivery
- Improper prenatal care
A personal injury lawyer can help you receive compensation for both you and your child for expenses like:
- Medical Expenses
- Pain and Suffering
