What Are Some Examples of Birth Injuries?
We’ve handled cases involving different kinds of birth injuries. The most common we’ve seen include:
- cerebral palsy;
- brachial plexus injuries;
- brain damage;
- spinal cord injuries;
- nerve injuries;
- facial nerve paralysis;
- and maternal injuries like postpartum hemorrhage or infections.
If your little bundle of joy has suffered any of these injuries, fill out this form right away. We may be able to hold the negligent party accountable if we find that someone somewhere was negligent.
What Are Some Common Causes of Birth Injuries?
These injuries occur due to many different factors. Here are the most common we’ve seen:
- medical negligence;
- improper use of delivery instruments like forceps or vacuum; extractors, failure to monitor fetal distress;
- delayed cesarean section;
- excessive force during delivery; and
- incorrect administration of medications.
Keep in mind that some of these injuries don't necessarily have to occur during the birth process. For instance, failure to diagnose or treat maternal infections during pregnancy could lead to long-term birth injuries even if the mother had a safe delivery.
Who Can Be Held Liable in a Birth Injury Lawsuit?
In such cases, liability may fall on doctors, nurses, midwives, hospitals, medical staff, and other healthcare professionals involved in the childbirth process. An experienced Phoenix birth injury lawyer can establish liability after reviewing the specifics of your case.
What Damages Can I Recover if I Win a Birth Injury Lawsuit?
In the past, plaintiffs have recovered both economic and non-economic losses from such cases. Economic damages for these cases typically cover medical expenses, ongoing treatment costs, therapy and rehabilitation expenses, and any future medical needs arising from the birth injury. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, may include pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and compensation for the child's disability or impairment and its impact on the child's life now and as they grow older.
Is There a Deadline for Filing a Birth Injury Lawsuit in Phoenix
Yes, since this case falls under medical malpractice, the statute of limitations in Phoenix is two years from the date the birth injury was discovered or should have been reasonably discovered. If you don't file the lawsuit within this time frame, the other party may petition the court to dismiss the case, and you may lose the opportunity to seek compensation for your child's injuries.
