New Jersey Birth Injuries
Generally speaking, the day a child is born is one of the most wonderful days for a family. Though there are times where babies will sustain natural, relatively minor trauma during natural childbirth, particularly due to the often difficult passage through the birth canal, this is not always the case. Sometimes, babies will endure serious injuries. Unfortunately, these injuries are oftentimes a result of medical malpractice or some form of negligence on the part of the obstetrician, nurse, or other medical professional involved in the delivery. If your child suffered some form of brain damage or any other serious injury after a complicated delivery, you may have grounds for a legal claim against the responsible party. By consulting a New Jersey personal injury attorney, you can learn more about whether you have a case, your legal rights, and your legal options going forward.
Types of Birth Injuries
Birth injuries can take the best day of a family’s life and turn it into one of the worst. Although we put a great deal of trust into the doctors and nurses that treat mothers and newborns, they do not always live up to the standard we expect and deserve. When this happens, a serious birth injury can occur, putting your life and your child’s life at risk. If this has happened to you, depending on the circumstances of your situation, you may take legal action against the party that caused your newborn to suffer from a serious birth injury. The following are examples of birth injuries which may be grounds for a claim or lawsuit:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb’s Palsy
- Brachial Plexus Injury
- Developmental Delays
- Brain Damage
- Birth Defects / Injury
- Prenatal Misdiagnosis
- Wrongful Death
Statutes of Limitations on Medical Malpractice Cases
The state of New Jersey requires that the wrongly injured file lawsuits within a certain period of time, known as the statute of limitations. If you fail to pursue your case within this time period, you will most likely be barred from taking legal action. Medical malpractice cases in New Jersey must be filed within 2 years of the date of the incident. Of course, this can be devastating to learn after it is too late. Time is of the essence, so ensure you speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as you can.
Recovering Compensation After a Medical Malpractice Case
If you have suffered from an incident of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to significant compensation. In many cases, you may recover compensation to help cover the cost of your medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and more. However, before you recover any sort of compensation, you must hire an experienced attorney who can prove that the physician owed you a duty of care, diverged from the traditionally-accepted line of treatment, breaching the duty of care, injuring you as a result, and causing you to sustain significant economic and noneconomic damages.
