Lawsuits related to a birth injury arise when babies are injured during their birth or before their birth by the careless or negligent care of a doctor or other healthcare provider. When carelessness causes an injury or death of a baby, the provider may be held liable for any and all damages that are the result of the careless actions.
When the provider is found legally responsible for a baby’s injuries, they may be required to pay a variety of damages including (1) Past and medical expenses necessary to cure the injuries; (2) Any and all future medical bills and care expenses necessary to treat and care for the child for the duration that the injuries will last; (3) Future lost wages; (4) Pain and suffering; (5) Permanency damages; (6) Scaring; and, (7) Wrongful death as well as others. These compensatory damages attempt to put the injured baby and his or her loved ones back in the position they would have been in had they not been the victims of the healthcare provider’s medical malpractice.
