Defining a Birth Injury

When a birth injury injures you or your child, you need to know what that entails and when you have grounds for a lawsuit. Generally, birth injuries can happen even in the most careful situations. Childbirth is complex and can lead to many complications. However, many birth injuries can be avoided with proper care.

For example, many birth injuries happen because the doctor ignored warning signs. The patient may have had severe, unexpected pain before giving birth. The doctor may have also used dangerous methods when delivering the child. Many birth injuries involve the child’s oxygen supply being cut off or being injured by surgical tools such as forceps.

If you are unsure whether you are eligible for a birth injury claim, talk to your lawyer about the specifics of your case. Your lawyer can discover whether you have grounds to sue, who is liable for your injuries, and what your claim is worth.

Who Is Liable for a Birth Injury in Fort Wayne?

When a birth injury happens, you may think mainly of the doctor responsible for the delivery. But the doctor who caused your injuries is not always the at-fault party. Often, the doctor is the responsibility of the hospital or doctor group they work for.

Because they injured you within the scope of their employment, you may need to file a claim against the hospital or doctor group instead. If you are unsure who is responsible for your injuries, contact a Fort Wayne birth injury lawyer to learn more about your options and how you can get compensated for your suffering.

Compensation for Indiana Birth Injury Victims

When you have suffered a devastating accident because a doctor was careless with your safety, you may have grounds for a lawsuit.

Birth injury victims may have grounds for both economic and non-economic damages. Your economic damages should cover any financial costs of your injury, including long-term medical expenses if you need years of surgeries or rehabilitation.

Non-economic damages can be more challenging to calculate. You may be eligible for compensation for your pain and suffering, but they do not have an intrinsic dollar value. Because of this, you may need to speak with a Fort Wayne personal injury lawyer about the value of your claim.
