Brockville Birth Injury Lawyer

Catastrophic injuries for a mother or baby sometimes occur during the birthing process. If you suspect a medical professional’s negligence led to you or your child suffering an injury, you may qualify to receive damages to compensate your family for:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Out of pocket costs
  • Pain and suffering

You may be eligible to receive other forms of damages as well. A birth injury lawyer serving Brockville with Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf to pursue compensation. Call us today at 1-800-JUSTICE for a free initial consultation.

Compensation May Help Pay for Long-Term Medical Care

In 2018, Statistics Canada reported that a total of 2,798 fetal deaths, or stillbirths, occurred in hospitals and listed complications of labor and delivery as the fifth-leading cause of infant death. A newborn suffering a life-changing injury during the birthing process qualifies as a traumatic event. For example, Canada Medical Protective Association noted a high occurrence of infants born with severe jaundice in Canadian hospitals in 2016. Due to the potential negligence of a medical professional, a child may develop a condition that could change the course of his or her life forever.

Birth injuries may require specialized care for years into the future. Long-term injuries that may occur during birth may include:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Bell’s palsy
  • Klumpke’s palsy
  • Fractures
  • Neck and spinal cord injuries, leading to paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Perinatal asphyxia
  • PPHN (persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn)
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • MAS (meconium aspiration syndrome)

While not all disabilities may impact your day-to-day life, financial compensation may be available for individuals whose children were not attended to with proper care. If you are eligible to receive compensation, you may receive a settlement that covers your child’s medical bills both now and in the future, as well as any specialized care your child may require.

You May Qualify for Compensation for Maternal Injuries

During labour, mothers may suffer an injury due to medical negligence. If you suffered an injury that was preventable before, during, or after the birth of your child, you may be eligible to receive compensation in a medical malpractice claim for injuries that may include:

  • Prolapsed uterus
  • Ruptured uterus
  • PPH (postpartum hemorrhage)
  • Postnatal traumatic stress disorder
  • Improper repair of perineal tears

You may be able to pursue damages for other injuries as well. If you qualify, you may be able to receive damages from the responsible party for any of the medical costs of treating these conditions, as well as potential pain and suffering compensation.

Our team at Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to help you determine if you have a birth injury case and help you seek compensation. Contact us today at 1-800-JUSTICE.

Determining If You Have a Case

Some birth injuries require immediate treatment, but the effects of birth injuries may not make themselves known for months or years into the future. You may notice that your child fails to reach developmental milestones or exhibits physical or behavioral symptoms of a condition like cerebral palsy that may have resulted from a birth injury.

If you believe you or your child suffered from medical negligence, contacting a birth injury lawyer serving Brockville may help determine if you have a case.

How a Birth Injury Lawyer May Be Able to Help

We may perform a variety of tasks to build your case, including:

  • Studying all aspects of the medical care you and your child received before, during, and after birth.
  • Interviewing witnesses who were present during the birth.
  • Negotiating with insurers.
  • Keeping you updated.
  • Representing you in court, if necessary.

We may also be able to help you in other ways, and we offer a free initial consultation to all of our potential clients.

Determining Liability in Your Case

Determining liability in a medical malpractice case that involves a birth injury can be a complex process. Dozens of different medical personnel may have treated you and your child at every stage of your pregnancy, labour, and care.

Your or your child’s injuries may not be immediately apparent, which further complicates the determination of negligence. Potentially liable parties in your birth injury case may include:

  • An OB-GYN
  • Nurses, including obstetric nurses
  • An anesthesiologist
  • A primary care doctor
  • Administrative staff
  • A neonatal doctor

Other parties may also share responsibility for your or your child’s injuries. We may be able to study your case to determine exactly who you may be able to hold liable for damages.

Contact Us Today for a Free Initial Consultation

If you believe you may be eligible to receive damages after a birth injury, consider contacting Preszler Injury Lawyers. Those who are eligible may receive damages for medical care, pain and suffering, and other items the child needs in life.

A birth injury lawyer serving Brockville may be able to fight for your rights against negligent medical personnel. We understand that damages may never truly compensate you for any pain and suffering you have experienced, but they may alleviate any financial pressure that befalls you due to a birth injury.

Holding the responsible parties liable may prevent negligence and further injury to others in the future if you pursue a birth injury lawsuit. Call us today at 1-800-JUSTICE. If your injuries prevent you from traveling, we may be able to come to you wherever it is most convenient, whether that is your home, office, or hospital room.
