Birth injury claims can often involve complex elements

When the beauty of a child's birth is tainted by medical errors that lead to lasting effects, the parents of that child might decide to take action. One of the possible ways they can do this is by filing a lawsuit based on the negligence or malpractice that led to that injury. This is a complex undertaking that can involve a host of points. We can evaluate your case to let you know what your options are if you are ready to seek compensation for the injuries your baby suffered.

One point that you must consider is the statute of limtiations that applies to the case. This time limit can depend on certain elements of the case, including who you are claiming is responsible for the injuries. Generally, claims against a medical professional would have a shorter time limit than a claim that is against a drug company.

Another point to consider is whether the case meets the four elements of a negligence case. These include duty, breach, causation, and damages. Duty means that the medical professional had a duty to care for you. Breach means that the medical professional didn't abide by that duty. Causation means that the breach of duty is what led to the harm your baby suffered. Damages means the acutal injuries your baby suffered because of that harm.

Your case is unique, so you shouldn't make a plan for seeking compensation based on what someone else went through. We can evaluate your case to offer you personalized options that take all the elements of your case into account.
