PHILADELPHIA BIRTH INJURY LAWYERS
Philadelphia birth injury lawyers at Fox Law understand the need for answers and support following a birth injury. Birth injury may cause physically, emotionally, and financially life-long effects. In 2010, a study of more than 700,000 births found that infant deaths and admission to the neonatal intensive care units were 47% higher during night time deliveries. These notable statistics are in line with all admissions in to the intensive care units, leading researchers to conclude that staff fatigue or experience level may be a factor.
Birth injury lawsuits arise when babies are injured during birth or before birth by the careless or intentional acts of a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other healthcare provider. When these actions cause an injury to a baby (but the actions do not rise to the level of a crime), they are said to be a “tort,” or civil wrong, which can provide the basis for a lawsuit.
When someone is determined to be legally responsible for injuring someone else, they are liable for the injury, and may be made to pay the injured person compensatory damages. Compensatory damages attempt to put an injured person back in the position he or she was in before being injured. For a young child this can include future and past medical expenses, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of a normal life and loss of future earnings depending on the type of injury the child suffered.
