Birth injury malpractice lawsuit funding

The American Board of Professional Liability Attorney (ABPLA) defines medical malpractice as a negligent act of a medical practitioner which causes harm to the patient. 

Medical practitioners should perform a reasonable standard of care. The failure to comply with the proper standard of care and cause injury to the patient may entitle them to bring a suit against the respective medical practitioner and claim damages. 

Birth-related malpractice falls in the category of medical malpractice. Generally, birth-related malpractice occurs in the following conditions:

1 – Injury to the mother or child 

The doctors, nurses, and other medical staff are duty-bound to take reasonable care of a mother and child. The care has to be provided during pregnancy when the doctors observe the changes in the mother and provide guidelines for a healthy baby. 

Similarly, medical practitioners have to comply with a reasonable standard of care during pregnancy to ensure the wellbeing of both mother and child. The failure to perform their job and cause injury to the mother or child will constitute birth malpractice. 

The injury to a mother during pregnancy may be of different kinds. 

For example, a doctor who fails to control the mother’s excessive blood loss after delivery may prove to be fatal. Or if a doctor fails to perform a c-section and causes injury to the mother, etc. 

Additionally, medical practitioners could cause injury to a child by failing to monitor the child’s oxygen level or deal with any other medical issue, and more. 

There can be different types of harm to the mother or child, but in all cases, it is imperative to prove that the negligence of the medical practitioners has caused the harm.

2 – Wrongful birth 

Genetic technology has enabled us to detect any abnormalities or hereditary diseases in a fetus. It is the responsibility of the medical practitioners to inform the parents about the presence of such technology, and if the parents are willing, they may examine to diagnose a hereditary condition in a fetus. 

Suppose the medical practitioners fail to diagnose physical or mental impairment in the early stages of pregnancy and the parents conceive the baby, they may file a case of birth malpractice against the respective medical practitioners. 

In the case where the parents have a successful birth malpractice case, the court of law may grant damages for the treatment of the abnormalities in a child or other special expenses. 

For example, medical doctors fail to diagnose a fetus with cystic fibrosis, and the parents conceive the baby. A child with cystic fibrosis has to go through pain and suffering and spend most of their time in the hospital for medical treatment. 

Similarly, there is no treatment to treat patients with this disease completely. The parents of a child born with cystic fibrosis may bring a successful claim of birth malpractice against their doctors. 

3 – Wrongful pregnancy

The claim of birth malpractice is not only associated with pregnancy and delivery, but it may also include cases in which parents undertook medical treatment to avoid pregnancy, such as sterilization, etc. 

However, medical practitioners failed to perform the procedure with a reasonable standard of care which resulted in pregnancy. 

In this case, the parents may bring a claim against the medical practitioners and claim damages for a child’s upbringing and the medical expenses during pregnancy and delivery.

There is no specific list of cases to bring a claim of birth malpractice. If medical practitioners have failed to comply with the standards of care and cause harm, the parents are entitled to bring a claim of birth malpractice.
