Can I Seek Compensation For A Birth Injury?
The birth of your child should be a happy and cherished time. Unfortunately, accidents occur, and you and your spouse may be facing the effects. A birthing injury, such as birth trauma, fetal lacerations or folic acid deficiency anemia, can have lasting effects on your child — and your family.
A birthing injury during an epidural birth or a C-section may also have lasting effects on the mother. As parents, you have the right to pursue a claim to obtain monetary compensation.
No one case is the same as another, and your compensation may not reflect the outcome of someone else’s case. Settlements for birth injuries and death are determined by the type of injury and the effect it has had and will have on you or your child.
Compensation is commonly a monetary payment for the injury and the associated costs such as:
- All medical expenses
- Costs for child care or in-home care
- Loss of wages for the parent of the child who has to stay home
- Additional care such as a surgical procedure
Depending on the details of your case, you may also be able to recover compensation for other disruptive damages such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Emotional anguish
