During childbirth, both the mother and the baby are in precarious positions. The mother is also vulnerable and at risk of suffering injuries during childbirth. It takes a caring doctor and medical staff who are highly committed to responsible medical decision-making in their duty of care.

When injuries occur during childbirth to either the baby or the mother, medical malpractice is often at play. Even if your doctor tells you that the injury was a fluke or that it was unavoidable, you should not accept that explanation without having a full investigation conducted. A birth injury lawyer serving Ottawa from Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to investigate and determine if the negligent or wrongful behaviours of one or more parties caused or contributed to your child’s birth injury.

Birth injuries may occur for a number of reasons, including the following and more:

  • Forceps and vacuum extraction errors
  • Errors involving a C-section
  • Not ordering a C-section in time
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Brain or head injuries
  • Infections
  • Temporary or permanent paralysis
  • Excessive bleeding

The above is only a partial list of things that may go wrong during the birth process. No matter how your child’s injury occurred, Preszler Injury Lawyers wants to sit down with you and learn about your situation so we may determine how we may be able to help. If you qualify for compensation, we may be able to begin investigating your case right away and gathering the evidence we need to put forward a compelling claim.

Birth Injury Claims in Ottawa, Ontario

Preszler Injury Lawyers proudly serves injured clients in Ottawa, Ontario, including those whose children have suffered harm during the birthing process. We may be able to help you build a compelling birth injury claim for damages by gathering evidence that proves the following four conditions:

Your Child Was Owed a Duty of Care

Call 1-888-608-2111 for available options or Book a Consultation

The first thing we must show is that the responsible party or parties owed you and your child a duty of care. This duty is implied where any doctor-patient relationship exists. Not only is the doctor bound by this duty of care, but so are their staff members, including nurses, physicians’ assistants, lab technicians, and others.

The Provider Did Not Uphold Their Duty of Care

We then must show, with evidence, how the provider failed to uphold their duty of care. A failure of duty occurs when the doctor or provider’s actions do not meet the reasonable person standard, which states that a healthcare provider must provide at least as high a quality of care as would be expected of a reasonable person in the same situation.

To show the liable party did not meet this standard, we may bring in expert witnesses to play the role of the reasonable person. These medical experts review the evidence and put themselves into the shoes of the responsible party. After they testify as to how they would have acted, we may highlight the differences between that and what actually happened to show how the responsible party fell short.

Your Child Suffered a Birth Injury

The next step is to draw a clear cause-and-effect relationship between the responsible party’s failure to uphold their duty of care and the birth injury suffered by your child. We may be able to collect evidence to make this connection clear.

You Incurred Economic or Noneconomic Damages

We close our case by listing the full slate of damages you have incurred as a result of your child’s injury. We may be able to pursue compensation for these damages from the responsible party or parties and their insurers if you qualify. These damages may include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost earnings
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Special schooling for your child
  • Medical devices (e.g., crutches, wheelchairs)
  • Pain and suffering and inconvenience
  • Emotional distress
  • And more if you qualify
