We will also call on expert witnesses to provide their opinions to support your case. This will help us demonstrate fault and prove how the practitioner’s negligent actions caused or contributed to the injury.
Proving Fault and Liability for Birth Injury
To establish your case, we must identify the negligent party and prove the following:
Duty of Care: Medical practitioners have a duty to provide good and accepted care for their patients.
Breach of Duty: The practitioner failed to provide good and accepted care for their patient.
Causation: The practitioner’s negligence caused harm to the mother or baby.
Damages: You or your baby (or both) suffered economic, physical, and/or emotional damages.
Determining Birth Injury Damages
After identifying all liable parties and establishing how their negligence caused or contributed to the injury, we will calculate the value of your claim. To do so, we will collect documentation to support the specific damages you and your baby suffered.
