Giving birth can be joyous, beautiful, scary, hard, and wonderful. It is not supposed to be, however, tragic. When errors are made by people tending to the baby and the mother, birth injuries occur. A birth injury can disrupt an entire life.
When you suspect that you or your child are a victim of a medical error during birth, please do not hesitate to contact our Queens injury lawyers right away. We have been fighting for the rights of our community for many years. Call us today to set up a free consultation.
What is a Birth Injury?
There are various forms of birth injuries that we cover. The incidents in which we provide legal representation for include:
- Broken bones from bad technique during delivery
- Cerebral palsy in the baby from oxygen deprivation
- Nerve damage from bad technique during delivery
If your child has any of these diagnoses, please do not wait to reach out to our Queens injury lawyers.
Who is the Responsible Party?
We will determine who the responsible or liable party is when we take a look at your case. We will assess the details of your claim to determine what exactly went wrong.
Depending on when the incident happened – during the pregnancy, labor, or post-delivery – we can determine who is at fault.
It could be your OBGYN, it could be the team attending to you while you were having the baby, or it could be the doctor in charge of your recovery.
Sometimes the hospital is at the fault for the incident.
We will come up with the correct person to file the claim against.
What Justice Can I Get?
You can receive justice in the form of financial consultation. The justice that we receive is meant to give you a settlement that fairly represents the damages that you and your family faced.
We know that money will not reverse the physical damage that the mother or baby suffered, but it will help you go forward from this incident without the financial burdens that accompany a birth injury.
The two types of damage that we will aim to recover for including your economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages will include things like hospital bills, mental health counseling, physical therapy, travel costs for treatments, loss of income, etc. Essentially, economic damage can cover you for all of the ways in which you lost money.
Non-economic damages are meant to cover the damages you cannot put on paper such as mental anguish, pain, suffering, and physical disability. A loss in life quality is going to be considered non-economic damage. These are very important to bringing full justice for you.
