Have you or a loved one had a child suffer a birth-related injury? American law protects those who have been personally injured, even newborns. You may be entitled to several forms of compensation if your child is the victim of a birth-related injury. A pregnancy coming to term can cause all kinds of problems. Pregnancies are extremely complex, and complications or malpractice can lead to injuries or death. If you or a loved one have experienced a birth-related injury, and you think you deserve compensation for any losses suffered, you can contact a personal injury attorney here at The Law Offices of G. Randolph Rice Jr. As with all of our personal injury cases, our aim is to aid you in receiving just compensation for any wrongful birth injuries incurred on a newborn child. You may be entitled to receive compensation for the following damages:
Any additional medical expenses incurred due to damage caused during birth or newborn care may be compensated. Speak with a malpractice and personal injury lawyer to determine how much compensation you may be entitled to.
Loss of Future Earning Capacity
Courts can determine a monetary compensation value assigned to the loss of future earning capacity of a newborn child. If a child is permanently injured or dies as a result of malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation.
Pain & Suffering Compensation
Any pain and suffering incurred during and after childbirth may be compensated for monetarily. A court will aim to assign a monetary value to the cost of any pain and suffering that has taken place.
If you or a loved one has experienced emotional distress due to malpractice during or after the birth process, a court may rule that you’re entitled to compensation. At The Law Offices of G. Randolph Rice Jr., we strive to protect our clients and aid them in receiving compensation to mitigate the suffering associated with birth-related injuries.
