If your child suffers a birth injury, you can get help

Birth injuries can change the course of your child's life before they ever get the chance to experience living as a healthy child. It's a horrible feeling to know that a doctor or nurse's mistake led to injuries that may never heal or that could lead to lasting disabilities.

If your child is hurt during birth, before birth or after you give birth to them — and those injuries are a result of medical errors — then you may have a claim. It's important to hold medical providers accountable when they make mistakes that impact your family.

Common birth injuries caused by medical errors

Some common injuries that could be a result of medical errors include:

  • Brain damage
  • Paralysis
  • Asphyxia
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Erb's palsy
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Forceps injuries

Many of the above injuries can result from preventable medical errors that were made throughout your pregnancy, during the delivery or shortly after the birth of your child.

What to do if your child was harmed by negligence or medical errors?

If you believe that your child was injured as a result of medical malpractice, it's time to explore your legal rights to seek civil justice. These cases are complex, and you may find that your child needs care and support now and in the future. If you plan to pursue compensation, you will need to have your child's condition medically evaluated. Then, your attorney can help determine how much it will cost to live with this condition over the course of a lifetime.

Our website has more on birth injuries and what you should do if your child has been injured at birth.
