A birth injury is far different from a birth defect. A birth defect is usually hereditary or genetic in nature, while a birth injury occurs because of medical mistakes made before, during, and after delivery. The key is that birth injuries are usually avoidable, and your child would have likely developed normally had the incident not occurred.

In these situations, there’s no amount of money that can turn back the damage and make your child well, but a birth injury lawsuit can help you financially handle the cost of your child’s special needs moving forward. Together with our partner attorneys, Goldwater Law Firm has helped parents all over the nation just like you. Please know that we’re here for you and ready to help demand justice for the medical mistakes committed against your child.

  • Bone fractures
  • Severe bruising

Was My Child’s Injury Preventable?

While there are many unavoidable circumstances that can lead to problems during birth, many birth injuries are preventable.

Parents, of course, play an important role in ensuring their child’s health by engaging in safe behaviors during the pregnancy. However, the actions of medical staff during childbirth are just as vital to a child’s wellbeing. One careless move can cause a lifetime of difficulties for the child and the parents.

It is the responsibility of health care workers to provide basic prenatal care, monitor expectant mothers, and promptly and appropriately respond to any risk factors that can potentially lead to problems for the child.

Should I File a Lawsuit?

If your child was the victim of a birth injury, they can face years of pain and suffering due to limited mobility and difficulty performing everyday activities. Dealing with a birth injury is not only traumatic for your child, but can also be a daily struggle for you and your family, as these often long-term conditions can lead to expensive costs for medical treatment, ongoing physical therapy, and more.

If you have any reason to believe your child was injured due to poor care by a healthcare professional, filing a birth injury lawsuit can help ease some of your financial burdens and hold irresponsible medical professionals accountable for their actions.

What Can Compensation Cover?

After a birth injury, the struggles of providing a lifetime of care for a child with special needs can be incredibly difficult. Filing a lawsuit can help provide the necessary financial support you need and deserve for your family after this traumatic event.

You may be eligible for a range of benefits and compensation, including the following:

  • Medical expenses, both current and estimated future expenses, including equipment, adaptive living devices, physical therapy, rehabilitation, medication, and other costs
  • Psychological counseling
  • Special education costs
  • Lost income of parents and lost potential future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral and burial costs in the case of wrongful death
  • Loss of comfort and companionship
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

About Attorney Bob Goldwater

My name is Robert Goldwater, and I am a medical malpractice attorney. In 2002, my wife gave birth to triplets. Unfortunately, they were born almost four months prematurely. They all suffered from numerous complications, including jaundice, respiratory distress, bradycardia, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, intraventricular hemorrhage (brain bleeds), retinopathy of prematurity, etc.

In 2003, I began providing helpful information for the families of children injured at birth. A substantial number of birth injuries are the direct result of substandard medical care. I wanted to provide a resource for parents to find out if their child’s birth injury was preventable, and if it was preventable, to connect them with one of the best birth injury attorneys in their area to help them obtain the maximum out-of-court settlement possible from the appropriate insurance company(ies).
