Few moments in life are as precious as the birth of a baby, and the moment cannot be recaptured once it is over. When a preventable medical mistake causes a birth injury, many people’s lives are permanently changed for the worse. These types of medical malpractice cases can be the most devastating. Most birth injuries affect the child and his or her parents for the rest of their lives.
Rarely do the consequences of a birth injury go away when the mother and baby check out of the hospital. In fact, depending on the injury, the baby may not be able to check out when the mother does. This is usually the beginning of the significant financial obligations that must be paid, solely because of a healthcare provider’s mistakes. It seems logical to assume a doctor and hospital would take responsibility for the financial and other consequences they set in motion. Most times, however, they do not. The impact a preventable birth injury can have on a family include: loss of income, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and home modifications.
