Birthing injuries occur when a baby is injured during birth or before due to a practitioner’s negligence or that of the nurse or hospital. When these injuries occur, they are basis for a civil lawsuit against the guilty parties.
When someone is legally responsible for causing injury to another person, they are liable for the costs associated with that injury. For young children, this may include current, past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, disfigurement, disability, loss of life, loss of future earnings, etc. – all depending on the type of injury the baby suffers.
Injuries suffered during birth aren’t just life-threatening for the child, they are for the mother as well. The team of Chico personal injury attorneys at Amaya & Associates understands that, and it is our goal to get your medical bills covered and ensure future care is paid for as well.
Birth injury cases are complex and highly emotional. It can be hard to determine who is negligent in these cases – such as the pharmaceutical company, medical device company, physician, nurse, hospital or a combination. An experienced personal injury attorney can analyze your case, hire experts to examine evidence, and build a case against the responsible party or parties.
Hospitals often have teams of lawyers and fighting them alone won’t work. You need an advocate by your side that will protect your rights and the rights of your child.
