The excitement and anticipation of parents expecting a newborn are the highest emotions felt by humans. Even before a child is born, the conversations parents have with their friends and family are filled with the hopes and dreams for their child.
Because of these heightened emotions, a birth injury can be absolutely devastating. Nothing can compare to the loss a parent feels when the vision for their child’s future is shattered.
While a birth injury lawsuit won’t completely absolve the anguish a parent might feel, the suit can help with the financial troubles the parents may face for their child’s future. A suit may also help parents to find closure knowing that the provider who caused the injury accepts responsibility for their actions.

Birth injuries refer to a physical injury that occurs during the birthing process of a child. These lawsuits are subset of the medical malpractice area of law. Medical malpractice is a form of negligence when a provider fails to meet the standard of care that an ordinary provider would use in that particular medical situation.
In the case of birth injuries, the common case brought is in regard to what an OB/GYN would use during child birth, either in diagnosis or in actual delivery.
Unfortunately, not every birth injury is preventable. Every procedure has some level of statistical risk than can occur. As mentioned previously, the standard of care that is used to judge whether or not a lack of carelessness caused an injury is that which a professional would use in the course of that medical procedure.
In the case of child birth, there are a series of tests and exams performed that occurs to determine whether or not the birth of a child could pose harm to the mother and whether there is a probability that the child could be harmed in the process. Birth injury cases can get extremely complicated and may require medical professionals to weigh in on whether the professional standard was met.
Even the most skilled and competent professional is subject to medical malpractice insurance. Often, these cases will go to the medical malpractice insurer who is incentivized to settle the case as quickly and affordable as possible. However, if you took every precaution available in preparation for your child, you must remember that the fault lies somewhere. The incentive is more than just assigning blame – the medical bills and lifestyle costs that your child must now incur to maintain a stable lifestyle need to be covered.
