Childbirth is a special moment in a parent’s life. Unfortunately, it does not always go smoothly. Sometimes medical staff make mistakes during labor and delivery that can lead to birth injuries – complications that can cause lifelong issues for your child. These mistakes can be a result of negligent behavior or malpractice. If you or your loved one experienced a birth injury in Colorado, you and/or your child may be entitled to compensation for future medical and care expenses.
What is a birth injury?
Birth injuries are harm caused to the baby at and around the time of birth. There are many types of birth injuries and multiple may even occur at once. For example, a child may be diagnosed with a lack of oxygen at birth (HIE) at the same time a brain bleed occurs. This can be a consequence of medical malpractice and can result in permanent disabilities for the child. Birth injuries are not always immediately known, delays in the child’s development may not appear until they start missing developmental milestones.
Statute of Limitations
Unfortunately, there is a time limit for filing a lawsuit, called a statute of limitations (SOL). This statute varies on a state-by-state basis, so if you suspect malpractice occurred during birth, it’s important to contact an attorney as soon as possible since birth injury lawsuits can take years to litigate.
