Prenatal Injuries

Every parent hopes to have a healthy child; unfortunately a foetus is not immune to injury. Injuries can occur in the womb due to medical malpractice and negligence of a medical professional and can create havoc not only to the life of a mother but also to the family and friends associated with her. Common prenatal injuries include neurological injuries, birth defects, cerebral palsy, and injuries which are directly attributable to delivery complications. Any act of omission or negligence which can be traceable to medical practice causing prenatal injury are liable for compensation, some common examples of such acts are:

  • Failure to properly monitor the fetus
  • Failure to perform a C-section when necessary
  • Injuries from forceps
  • Improperly estimating a due date
  • Failure to monitor jaundice at birth
  • Rh factor incompatibility
  • Failure to address lack of oxygen to the infant’s brain

Prenatal injuries may also occur in cases like an automobile accident involving the foetus’ mother resulting in an injury to the foetus; or the result of a slip and fall incident involving the mother. A fair settlement can help the family to afford special care and services, pay the medical bills, or rehabilitation expenses that might be required for the child. We understand the complexity of these heart-rending issues associated with the injuries and help the families hold responsible parties accountable. We take every step to obtain reasonable compensation for our clients, based on the circumstances of the case either through settlements or litigation.
