Preventable birth injuries may result from the use of improper delivery methods or negligence on the part of the doctors, staff or hospital where the baby was born.
Birth injuries in Canada are an all too common occurrence, and the type of birth injury can vary, ranging from temporary bone fractures, bleeding and bruising, to cerebral palsy and even permanent brain damage. Often these birth injuries result from negligence or malpractice from one or more of the medical staff dealing with the pregnancy, and this could be experienced during the pregnancy or in the process of childbirth.
If your baby has suffered a birth injury as the result of negligence or malpractice, you may be entitled to file a birth injury lawsuit and claim compensation for the baby’s pain and suffering as well as for any costs that may be involved in the extra care and treatment that the baby may needs as it grows up with this injury.
