BIRTH INJURY ATTORNEYS

Get Help Today

If your child was injured during the labor or delivery process, deciding your next step can be very overwhelming. You may not even realize your child was injured at birth for several weeks, months and even years, so it can be difficult knowing who was responsible for your child’s injury. The first step in getting legal help is to contact an experienced obstetrical malpractice attorney to discuss your situation as soon as possible. Many states have limitations on the time your child has to bring a birth injury claim, so speaking with a knowledgeable attorney is imperative to getting your child the help he or she deserves.

In the United States, when a child is injured as a result of medical negligence, there are two separate claims with different statutes of limitations that apply to each of them. The first claim is for damages to the parents, which may include maternal injuries, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and damage to the parent-child relationship, among others. This statute is typically very short, in some cases as little as one year. The second claim includes damages for injury to the child, medical expenses, future medical expenses, past and future wage loss claims, past and future pain and suffering, the loss of the enjoyment of life, and other damages.  Depending on the state, this statute may be as little as one year as well, although some states have statutes that extend the period of time that a claim may be brought for a minor.  Additionally, claims against certain governmental entities may have a shorter time period.  Regardless of the state that you live in, it is extremely important to reach out to a knowledgeable attorney who can evaluate your claim and explain the time limits you have to file a lawsuit.
