Birth Injuries

Las Vegas Birth Injury Lawyer

Representing Families Impacted by Birth Injuries and Other Medical Negligence

The diagnosis of a birth injury can be absolutely devastating for a family. What should be a joyous and celebrating time can quickly turn into a medically complicated, heartbreaking, and confusing situation. If your child has suffered a birth injury, it is important to seek prompt medical care and, as soon as possible, you should consult with a medical malpractice attorney.

Although many birth injuries occur through the fault of no one, some birth injuries are the result of medical negligence. In these situations, the doctor, obstetrician, hospital, or other health care provider can be held liable for the birth injury and its lasting impact.

We have represented victims of all types of medical malpractice, including diagnostic errors, surgical errors, birth injuries, and emergency room errors for more than 30 years. Not only do we have the skill and experience to fight for maximum compensation, but we will guide you every step of the way with compassion and personal attention.

Money Damages for Birth Injuries and Other Medical Negligence

If a doctor, obstetrician, hospital, or health care provider is found to be negligent in providing medical care and treatment, the baby’s family is generally entitled to compensation for the birth injuries. Money damages in a medical malpractice lawsuit are calculated by taking into account a number of factors, including the specific circumstances of medical negligence, the baby’s injuries, the lasting impact of the birth injuries on the child’s life, any applicable cap on damages, and other laws of the jurisdiction.

Medical malpractice damages often include compensatory damages for the following:

  • Medical expenses (past and future)
  • Lost wages (past and future)
  • Household services
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
