|"The best of wages will not compensate for excessively long working hours which undermine heath."|
Supreme Court Justice Louis Dembitz Brandeis
Brandeis: The Personal History of an American Ideal
Giving birth is an enormous step in life. For nine months you wait for your little one's arrival, feeling your baby move, dreaming about what he or she will look like. When the big day arrives, you put all your trust into your obstetrician and the hospital and work hard to bring your new bundle into the world.
When you or your baby suffers an injury or death during the birth, the shock and sadness over the pain and loss take over your world. Moving past this emotional and physical trauma is the primary goal, but it is important to set your secondary goal by finding legal representation because many injuries from birth trauma are tragically preventable.
Many more physicians are opting to perform cesarean sections in order to avoid having to use equipment or tools to extract the baby. This process has resulted in many unnecessary surgeries or negligently performed surgeries. Injuries to babies from the birth process may result in musculoskeletal injuries, nerve injuries, soft-tissue injuries, intra-abdominal injuries and death. Injuries to the mother may affect the reproductive system and the nervous system and may also result in death.
If you or a loved one has suffered a birth injury, you must find competent legal counsel to guard your long-term financial and medical interests.
The cause of action for birth injuries is based in negligence. The statute of limitations for this lawsuit is two years from the date of incident or injury.
Financial recovery can include past, present and future medical bills. Other potential areas of compensation, depending on the facts of the situation, are mental pain and suffering damages, lost past and future wages, permanent impairment/disfigurement, punitive damages, wrongful death damages and loss of enjoyment of life.
