Birth Injury Lawyer in Sioux Falls
Celebrating the arrival of a new child is a special time for you, friends, and family. Unfortunately, negligence from doctors, medical staff, and even medical facilities can turn the beautiful and exciting process of childbirth into a distressing experience for many families.
Negligence can result in various birth injuries affecting both children and expectant mothers. However, this alone is not enough to win such a case. To initiate a birth injury claim, it is essential to establish that the injury directly resulted from the actions or inactions of a party that owed you and your loved one a duty of care. If the performance of a doctor or medical professional falls short of the well-defined industry standards in Sioux Falls, pursuing a birth injury or malpractice lawsuit becomes necessary.
Contact Morgan and Morgan today to have a medical malpractice specialist assess the validity of your birth injury claim. If you have a valid case, a Sioux Falls birth injury attorney from our team might be able to fight for your loved one's right to compensation.

Morgan & Morgan
What Compensation Can I Seek Through a Birth Injury Lawsuit?
If you have a valid case and your attorney decides to go ahead with a birth injury lawsuit, you may seek various forms of compensation, including but not limited to the following:
- Medical expenses for current and future care.
- Rehabilitation and therapy costs your loved one may need as they get older.
- Compensation for their pain and suffering.
- Lost wages if you must care for your child full-time.
- Other damages specific to your case.
In South Dakota, the court might also award you punitive damages if determined that the healthcare provider or facility was extremely negligent. However, such an award is not guaranteed and may only apply if the case goes to court.
How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Birth Injury Lawyer?
Morgan and Morgan birth injury lawyers in Sioux Falls work on a contingency fee basis. In other words, they only get paid if you win the case and obtain a settlement or verdict.
What Information Should I Gather Before Consulting a Birth Injury Lawyer?
Your birth injury lawyer will need to review any relevant information about your case, if available. These include but are not limited to:
- Medical records detailing the childbirth and subsequent care.
- Any documentation related to the child's condition and prognosis.
- Relevant insurance information.
- Correspondence with medical providers.
Having this information can help the lawyer assess the viability of your case. However, not having any or part of this information shouldn't stop you from contacting us for a free case review. We are America's largest injury firm with access to powerful legal resources to build a strong case on your behalf.
What Role Does the Lawyer Play in the Legal Process of a Birth Injury Case?
A skilled lawyer from our team can help with:
- Examining the circumstances surrounding the birth injury to determine whether negligent was a factor.
- Identifying responsible parties and building a strong case against them by gathering relevant evidence.
- Creating a legal strategy with your best interests at heart.
- Filing a claim with the party they believe was responsible for the injuries your loved one sustained.
- Negotiating with insurance companies on your behalf.
- Representing you in court if a lawsuit is filed.
The lawyer may also help you file an appeal if your case was unfairly dismissed, and there's a good chance you may be able to convince the court of your eligibility for compensation.
How Long Does It Typically Take To Resolve a Birth Injury Lawsuit?
There's no specific timeline. It depends on factors such as the case's complexity. Some cases may be resolved in months, while others can take years.
Are There Alternatives to Going to Court To Resolve a Birth Injury Claim?
Yes, negotiation and mediation are great alternatives. Here, parties from either side of the aisles work with a neutral third party to settle. These methods can be faster and less adversarial than going to court.
