Birth injuries are one of the most tragic elements of practicing personal injury law, as those injuries are typically with the child for his or her entire life. The birth of a child should be a joyful experience. Birth injuries can turn that experience to tragedy, and are particularly difficult when they’re caused by the negligence of a doctor, nurse, hospital or medical professional. These are the people you trust to help you bring a new life into the world, and when these people fail you, it isn’t just you who has to pay the price.
Birth injuries can be extremely serious incidents. They can lead to short-term medical problems or long-term medical complications, including:
- Cerebral palsy;
- Fetal distress;
- Erb’s palsy;
- Cesarean Section (C-Section);
- And many more.
Medical problems caused by birth injuries can haunt you and your child for years to come, causing mounting medical bills and a notable decline in the quality of life.
If a medical practitioner has caused a birth injury, don’t wait too long to seek justice. The Statute of Limitations on birth injuries limits the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit after the incident.
