Types of Birth Injuries

Having a baby is arguably the most delicate time in a human being’s life. The body is just becoming fully formed and is still highly fragile. Not to mention, the health of the mom is precarious during labor, as well. The attending physician and their medical staff have a critical duty to keep both mother and baby as safe as possible. Unfortunately, there is a long list of things that may potentially go wrong during childbirth. When one or more of these issues arise, the chance of injury to the baby or the mother increases.

While your doctor may tell you that the injury to your child was unavoidable, that is rarely the case when it comes to birth injuries. Usually, there is at least one responsible party, and it is often the doctor himself or herself. Anytime a child suffers injuries at birth, the family should speak with a birth injury lawyer as soon as possible to learn about their options.

A few examples of childbirth injuries include:

  • Forceps and vacuum
  • C-section injuries
  • Injuries due to a failure to order a timely C-section
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Brain or head injuries
  • Infections
  • Temporary or permanent paralysis
  • Excessive bleeding

This list is nowhere near exhaustive, and no matter how your child was injured at birth, Preszler Injury Lawyers wants to hear from you. At your free, initial case evaluation, a member of our team sits down with you, gets to know you, learns about your child’s injury and how it happened, goes over your legal options, and lets you know what to expect in the days and weeks ahead. If you decide to hire us to handle your claim, we start right away, investigating your injury and gathering evidence against the responsible party or parties.

Proving Liability for Your Child’s Birth Injuries

When a birth injury occurs, any number of parties may be partly or fully liable. Our investigation may be able to shed light on exactly what went wrong and why it happened. The investigation may be able to give us much more insight and may likely point us in the direction of the responsible party or parties.

A few parties who may be liable for your child’s injury include:

  • The attending physician
  • A member of the doctor’s staff
  • The medical facility where the birth took place
  • A drug manufacturer
  • And possibly others

How We Fight Birth Injury Claims

The birth injury lawyers serving Brampton, Ontario, at Preszler Injury Lawyers have a long and successful track record of helping injured victims and their families recover the compensation they qualify to receive. For your claim to be successful, we need to demonstrate four things, backing each of them up with substantial evidence.

The Responsible Party Owed You and Your Child a Duty of Care

First, we must show that the person or entity that we are claiming is liable for your child’s injury owed you (and your child) a duty of care. This duty is automatically implied in any doctor-patient relationship. Also, importantly, it covers not only the doctor himself or herself but also every member of the attending medical staff, including nurses, physicians’ assistants, lab technicians, and more.

The Responsible Party Did Not Uphold Their Duty of Care

Next, we must demonstrate that the responsible party failed to uphold their duty of care. A failure of duty occurs when a doctor or healthcare provider’s actions fall below the standard one would expect from a reasonable person in the same position. By reasonable person, we mean another healthcare provider with similar education and training.

To make our case, we may be able to bring in expert witnesses to play the role of the reasonable person, examining the evidence and testifying as to how they would have acted differently in the same situation.

You Suffered Injuries Because of the Responsible Party’s Failure

Third, we must show how you suffered injuries because of the responsible party’s failure. We may be able to do this by presenting your medical records, testimony from expert witnesses, and other evidence that helps us draw a clear cause-and-effect relationship.

You Incurred Economic or Noneconomic Damages

Finally, we must list the damages, both economic and noneconomic, that you incurred as a result of your injuries. These damages may include the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages from work
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Special schooling for your child
  • Medical devices for your child (e.g., crutches, wheelchairs, leg braces)
  • Pain and suffering and inconvenience
  • Emotional distress
  • And more if you qualify
