Common Types of Birth Injury Lawsuits

Emergency or Delivery Room Mistakes

If the medical staff failed to administer proper care, ignored fetal distress, or caused injuries during delivery, you have the right to take action. Our birth injury law firm won’t hesitate to go up against at-fault medical professionals or hospitals.

C-Section Complications

All surgeries come with some risks, including C-sections. Regardless, mothers and their children should not be placed in undue danger. If medical negligence results in hemorrhaging, infections, or further complications, your family deserves compensation.

OB/GYN Malpractice

When a medical professional fails to properly care for a pregnant patient, or a mother and baby, they should be held accountable for their mistake. We pursue justice against obstetric nurses, doctors, and other medical personnel involved in prenatal care or labor and delivery.

Baby Injuries or Deaths

If you are facing the anguish of losing an infant or a future with an injured child, know that you’re not alone. Our birth injury malpractice lawyers will help you seek compensation for the financial, emotional, and physical damages.

    FAQs About Birth Injury Lawsuits

    Birth injury lawyers play a crucial role in seeking fair settlements for birth defects, delivery-related injuries, and/or fetal deaths. We’ll ensure that no insurance company or hospital takes advantage of your family, and we won’t be satisfied until we’ve obtained justice.

    Every birth injury case is unique, but most claims take between six months and a few years to resolve. The timeframe depends on a number of factors, including case complexity and insurance negotiations. The sooner you get started, the easier it will be to expedite the process and meet the required deadlines.

    In Wisconsin, you typically have three years to file a medical malpractice claim, such as a birth injury lawsuit. To learn more about your case’s specifics, we recommend speaking with our legal teams about when the defect or injury became apparent.

    Some injuries are immediately apparent in the mother and/or child after birth. Others may take years to appear, and even longer to properly diagnose. In any case, it’s crucial that you document the first signs of a birth-related injury as soon as they present themselves.

    There are many factors involved in arriving at a value for a case, including the nature and extent of the injury, age of the injured, past and future medical expenses, past and future limitations, permanency, the strength of liability, etc. Wisconsin families are entitled to financial compensation to help cover their medical expenses and any damages that they have suffered.
