Birth Injuries in Ajax, Ontario
At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we proudly fight for parents whose children have suffered birth injuries due to the negligence or wrongdoing of a medical professional. If your child suffered an injury at birth, a strong chance exists that at least one medical provider shoulders liability for that injury. Perhaps they told you it was unavoidable, but that is rarely the case with birth injuries. We can help you identify who was responsible and then file a claim against them for compensation.
We have helped clients hold medical providers responsible for a number of different birth injuries. The following are some of the most common, though this list is nowhere near exhaustive:
- Forceps extraction injuries
- Vacuum extraction injuries
- Caesarean (C-section) injuries
- Injuries caused by a failure to order a timely C-section
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Brain or head injuries
- Temporary or permanent paralysis
- Excessive bleeding
No matter how your child’s injury occurred, and whether it appears on the above list or not, Preszler Injury Lawyers wants the opportunity to sit down with you, discuss your case, and give you our thoughts. We can let you know the types and amount of compensation you may be eligible to receive, and how to go about pursuing damages. If you decide to move forward, we can get to work right away, conducting an investigation, identifying the responsible party or parties, and gathering evidence to file a claim.
The most common responsible parties for birth injuries include the following:
- The doctor
- A member of the doctor’s medical staff
- The hospital or medical facility
- The drug manufacturer
This is not an exhaustive list of potentially responsible parties.

How We Can Prove Liability
Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to hold the responsible party or parties liable and win compensation from them. This money can go toward your economic and noneconomic losses. In order for your claim to be successful, a birth injury lawyer serving Ajax must successfully demonstrate three things:
The Responsible Party Owed Your Child a Duty of Care
First, we have to demonstrate that the responsible party or parties owed you and your child a duty of care. This duty is implicit in any doctor-patient relationship, so as long as such a relationship existed, we can establish a duty of care fairly easily.
They Did Not Uphold Their Duty of Care
We then must show that the responsible party or parties failed to uphold their duty of care to you and your child. The precise nature of a duty of care is somewhat nebulous: it requires the doctor or medical provider to offer a level of care that meets or exceeds what one would expect from a reasonable person with the same education and training. To prove that the party did not meet this standard, we can bring in expert witnesses to play the role of the reasonable person. Our expert witnesses can review the evidence and explain how they would have acted in the same situation, illustrating the deficiency of the responsible party’s actions.
Your Child Was Injured Because of This Failure
Finally, we can tie your case together by establishing a compelling cause-and-effect link between the responsible party’s failure of duty and the injuries suffered by your child. Once that link is clear, we can list the actual damages you suffered from your child’s injury, both economic and noneconomic, and make a case for full compensation.
