When a birth injury occurs because of medical malpractice, the victim and their family may deserve financial compensation. Birth is a medical event, and medical malpractice laws apply. If a doctor, physician’s assistant, nurse or other professional fails to use reasonable skill and attention to the patient, they may be responsible for negligence. That negligence may be the basis of a lawsuit when a birth injury occurs.

In a birth injury lawsuit, you can win compensation for the child’s long-term medical care needs, their physical limitations, the help that they may need with everyday life going forward and a sum to represent pain and suffering.

Because many birth injuries affect their victims for their entire lives, the amount you may win in a birth injury lawsuit can be quite high. Winning the full amount of compensation for each case requires identifying and evaluating injuries, valuing the damages associated with those injuries and gathering proof of the damages claimed by the victim.

Our attorneys may be able to represent you in a birth injury case that results from any of these causes:

  • Poor oxygen monitoring or oxygen deprivation
  • Failing to respond appropriately and immediately to signs of distress
  • Prolonged labor
  • Failing to take the mother’s health history into account
  • Inadequate staffing to attend to the mother’s needs
  • Unsafe positioning/dystocia/abnormal fetal position
  • Weight of the child
  • Premature birth because of errors or inattention
  • Lack of adequate attention to the mother
  • Injury from use of forceps and vacuum extraction

Birth injuries can be the result of a variety of causes. Our team of birth injury attorneys in Englewood may represent you for any harm that occurs due to the negligence of medical care professionals.

Laws for birth injuries in Colorado mirror medical malpractice laws in the state. In childbirth, like in all medical care, the people receiving care have the right to expect trained, competent professionals. A care provider must live up to reasonable standards of ordinary care. The standard is whether the person giving service uses the same level of care as an ordinary person with the same training and competence.

Patients have a legal right to expect their medical professionals to do their jobs up to a reasonable skill level. That standard takes into account that the professional has specialized medical training for their job duties. In the case of childbirth, an attendant should know what medical complications and injuries can arise during the childbirth process. They should know how to identify and respond to these issues.

Birth injury laws in Colorado give individuals the right to demand compensation when they are victims of negligence. Economic and non-economic damages are available. There may be limitations that cap compensation for birth injuries under Colorado law; however, these caps are quite large. Our attorneys fight to earn each victim the maximum compensation possible in their case.

Some examples of birth injuries that may qualify for financial compensation under the law include:

  • Cerebral Palsy/Erb’s Palsy
  • Brain damage
  • Brachial plexus injury
  • Skull fracture
  • Fractures
  • Paralysis
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Bruising
  • Torticollis (wry neck)
  • Wrongful death

If the birth injury results from the negligence of medical care professionals, you may qualify to claim financial compensation. An essential part of a birth injury lawsuit is identifying injuries and their long-term complications.

When our team represents you in a childbirth lawsuit, we begin by working immediately to preserve the evidence in the case. That may mean demanding medical records from care providers. It can also mean referrals to experts to identify and document injuries. Then, we value your case and gather proof of your damages.

Our representation includes all of the steps needed to file and pursue a case. We draft precise legal documents that clearly and completely state the case, and our team speaks for you at court appearances. Together, we develop a legal strategy that reflects your rights, needs and goals. You may choose to take your case to court or negotiate a settlement. Whatever you choose, we represent you with diligence, determination and a passion for justice.

The time to file your case is limited. Please contact us as soon as possible so that we can begin building your case and preserving evidence.
