Servicing the Maritimes and all of Canada
Giving birth should be one of the most special moments in the life of a mother (and her partner). Thankfully, chances are good that it will be. It’s highly probable that you will deliver a healthy, beautiful child – and the experience will be forever memorialized in a positive light.
Birth Injuries Do Happen
But birth injuries do happen – whether during pregnancy, labour or delivery. And they can severely harm your child and lead to long-term effects; some can even prove fatal. In fact, according to a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, trauma to both mother and baby during vaginal (particularly forceps) deliveries, has increased in Canada in recent years.
Birth injuries can range from conditions such as erb’s palsy to cerebral palsy, among others. And they will all necessitate rehabilitation, therapy and care, costs of which can prove extensive. Add to those physical expenses the emotional and psychological turmoil which don’t come with a price tag, and birth injuries can really take a toll on an infant and their family.
We Can Help
Some injuries are not preventable, but others certainly can be. If negligence by a medical or nursing practitioner has occurred – such as an error in treatment or a misdiagnosis – and a birth injury resulted, they can be held responsible. If your child suffered a birth injury while in the care of a medical or nursing professional, you may be eligible to receive damages and compensation for the harm you and your child have experienced.
At Howie, Sacks & Henry, we believe serious injuries require extraordinary efforts to get the best results. We treat our clients as real people, not just a file; we treat them with the respect and empathy they deserve. With 40 years’ experience in medical malpractice, our team of compassionate lawyers have achieved an impressive reputation for our expertise and for always fighting as hard – and as intelligently – as we can on behalf of our medical malpractice clients to ensure they receive the compensation they deserve.
