California Birth Injury Lawyer
Legal action can be taken when a baby is injured during the birthing process or prior to birth due to carelessness, neglect or an intentional act by a medical professional or healthcare provider. When such an injury occurs, and does not rise to the level of criminal offense, there is basis for a lawsuit.
Liability for an injury falls to the party that is responsible for causing the injury. The individual that is deemed liable, can be made to pay financial compensation to the injured person for damages. In the case of a baby, compensation can be sought that will include both past and future medical expenses, can include a sum for pain and suffering, an additional amount for disability and disfigurement that has been incurred, as well as remuneration for reduced quality of life and loss of future earnings.
