Who Can File a Birth Injury Lawsuit?

Victims who suffer preventable birth injuries may be able to file civil lawsuits against doctors, nurses, hospitals, or other health care providers they claim were negligent in causing their injuries. While each case is unique, and the ability to file a claim depends on the facts involved, the general elements of a birth injury lawsuit are as follows:

  • Duty: Victims must prove a legal duty existed between them and a health care provider.
  • Breach of Duty: Plaintiffs in birth injury lawsuits must show treating health care providers failed to meet their “duty of care.” In other words, they will need to prove a medical professional failed to meet the accepted standards of their profession.
  • Causation: In addition to proving a provider’s breach of duty, Plaintiffs must further prove the substandard care was more likely than not the cause of their injury.
  • Damages: Victims must demonstrate how they suffered damages as a result of their medical provider’s negligence.

Complex Claims, High Stakes Litigation

Birth injury lawsuits have simple elements in theory, but they are recognized as being some of the most complex civil injury claims to litigate. Not only must plaintiffs gather the evidence needed to support their allegations, they’ll also need to address very particular laws, highly technical medical concepts, and the expenses and challenges of litigating what are often high-value claims.

Examples of birth injury claims include:

Doctors, hospitals, and medical malpractice insurers fight aggressively to defend against birth injury claims, and they’ll go to great lengths to dispute and deny liability.

To level the playing field, victims can work with experienced attorneys who have the resources to conduct necessary investigations, collaborate with medical experts, and build claims that effectively demonstrate health care providers’ failures and their role in causing preventable injuries.

Compensation for Birth Injury Victims

Birth injury victims who prevail in their cases are entitled to a recovery of damages – the economic and non-economic losses incurred as a result of their injuries. This also includes the losses victims are likely to experience in the future, which is common in cases involving serious and life-altering injuries such as brain damage, HIE, and cerebral palsy, among others.

Accounting for the full scope of victims’ damages is a crucial component of these cases, as it allows victims to secure financial compensation for their:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional injuries (i.e. anguish, grief, lost quality of life, etc.)
  • Lost income / lost future wages
  • Medical bills and future medical expenses
  • Costs of accommodative care, living assistance, and special needs

  • $25.5M for a baby who suffered oxygen deprivation and brain damage after a hospital failed to follow its obstetrical emergency protocol.

    "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.
