Can I File a Birth Injury Lawsuit?

Your right to file a civil lawsuit over a birth injury you believe should have been avoided depends on the unique facts of your case. At The Becker Law Firm, we investigate potential claims to determine whether families may have grounds to pursue legal action.

Though there are different reasons to pursue birth injury lawsuits, they are generally filed over claims that treating medical professionals failed in some capacity to meet the “standard of care” applicable to the situation. In other words, we ask:

Did the medical provider, when treating the patient, fail to act as a reasonably skilled and trained medical provider would have acted under the same or similar circumstances?

If the provider failed to meet their duty of care, there may be a potential case. Because there are many nuances in the law that influence what the duty of care may be in any given situation, however, we encourage families to speak personally with our attorneys to fully vet their claims and explore their available options.

Examples of Birth Injury Claims

Birth injuries happen for many reasons. Some common claims brought in lawsuits include:

  • Failures to properly monitor, identify, and respond to fetal distress (oxygen deprivation);
  • Improper use of medications or labor-inducing drugs (i.e. Pitocin);
  • Failure to perform C-section, delayed C-section;
  • Failure to properly manage high-risk birth (i.e. gestational diabetes, infections, etc.);
  • Failure to prevent, diagnose, or treat complications (i.e. placental abruption, oxygen deprivation, etc.); and
  • Delivery trauma caused by improper use of forceps, vacuums, or applied force.

Some of Our Birth Injury Results Include:

  • $25.5 million recovered for a family whose child suffered oxygen deprivation and brain damage when a hospital failed to follow emergency protocol. The case was previously turned down by another law firm, and The Becker Law Firm secured one of the largest malpractice judgments in Ohio history.
  • $14.5 million recovered for the family of a baby who suffered severe brain damage resulting in cerebral palsy and cognitive deficits after physicians delayed an emergency C-section. The mother had a history of cesarean births and preterm labor.
  • $8 million settlement with a hospital for failure to provide prophylactic antibiotics, resulting in extreme sepsis, hypovolemic shock, and infant brain damage.

What Compensation Can I Recover in a Birth Injury Lawsuit?

Birth injury claims provide families with the sense of justice and accountability they deserve, but they are also crucial to recovering financial compensation for damages they have incurred and are likely to incur in the future.

Recoverable damages in birth injury cases may include:

  • Past and future pain and suffering
  • Emotional suffering, grief, and mental anguish
  • Medical bills
  • Lost income and lost future earnings
  • Future medical expenses

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
