What can kind of compensation can we expect through a birth injury lawsuit?

Victims of birth injuries caused by medical malpractice may be eligible for compensatory damages. This could include money to help pay for:

  • Medical bills (past, current and future), such as those required for surgery, physical therapy, medical equipment and medications.
  • Nursing care or specialized day care.
  • Private tutoring.
  • Other accommodations.

Your child may also be eligible for the eventual cost of lost wages, lost earning capacity and future lost income, as well as for pain and suffering.

You may also be compensated for the lost parent-child relationship if your child’s injury has caused a significant mental disability. A malpractice lawsuit could also seek punitive damages if actions by the liable parties equate to gross negligence or reckless disregard for human life.
