Can Adoptive Parents File a Birth Injury Lawsuit?

Adopting a child can be just as exciting for the adoptive parents as giving birth to a newborn. By choosing to adopt, you may have questions for the adoption agency about the child’s medical history including information about the child’s birth and the prenatal care of the child’s biological mother. If your adopted child suffers physical impairments or delayed developmental milestones, you may wonder, “Is this related to a birth injury? If so, how do I file a birth injury lawsuit on behalf of my adoptive child?” Sometimes, adoption agencies fail to properly investigate the medical background of a child.

Depending on the circumstances of the individual case, adoptive parents may have claims for obstetrical malpractice for injuries to the adopted child if the case is filed in a timely manner. Each state in the United States has a statute of limitations, or SOL, which sets strict time limits within which a parent or guardian may bring a birth injury lawsuit against negligent healthcare providers. Additionally, adoptive parents may have claims for adoption negligence, also known as wrongful adoption, if they were negligently or intentionally misinformed about the health of their child.
