Connecticut Birth Injury Lawyers
Eagan, Donohue, Van Dyke & Falsey, LLP’s Connecticut birth injury lawyers have handled numerous wrongful death matters and birth injury claims resulting from the negligence and misconduct of health care professionals.
Your baby is the most important thing in your life from the moment you discover you are pregnant. You spend 9 months nurturing your baby and making sure everything you do in your life benefits your baby’s growth and well-being. It is therefore a traumatic experience not only when a birth injury occurs, but especially when a birth injury occurs which is the result of a doctor or health professional’s negligent actions. If your child has experienced a birth injury due to the negligence or misconduct of a health care professional, do not hesitate to contact an experienced Connecticut birth injury lawyer.
Birth injuries occur when a doctor, nurse, or other health care professional behaves in a careless or negligent manner during your child’s birth. Some of these actions are severe enough to lead to a criminal action, although you can always seek further compensation through a civil claim. If a health care professional was responsible for your child’s injuries, they and the hospital may be liable to pay for any injuries sustained as a result of the birth. Negligence during birth can lead to the following injuries:
- Brain damage
- Cerebral palsy
- Breech birth
- Fetal death
- Injury caused by failure to perform a Caesarean or incorrect dosage of medicine
Birth injuries can encompass a wide range of injuries that are often quite rare but are due to another person’s actions. Birth injuries not only impact the health and well-being of the child, but also put the mother at risk.
Many developmental injuries which are the direct result of the birth do not manifest themselves into later on in the child’s life. If your child has been injured as a result of negligent or careless actions during birth, you may be entitled to receive compensation to cover all medical expenses, pain and suffering, and even loss of income due to the medical complications.
