Our Legal Team Will Know Standards for Liability in Your Case
When medical malpractice occurs, numerous parties may have liability. The American Bar Association (ABA) explains that negligence is one standard of liability for personal injury cases, but it may not be the only standard applicable to your case.
A medical professional, such as a doctor, may have been negligent in causing or contributing to your newborn’s birth injury. Such a doctor may be one of the defendants who you can sue for a newborn brain hemorrhage.
A doctor’s negligent acts may have included:
- Using forceps in a way that caused your child’s bleeding
- Failing to identify any prenatal condition that increased the risk of a hemorrhage occurring
- Failing to respond appropriately to any known health conditions you or your child have
- Failing to order an emergency C-section when doing so may have prevented a hemorrhage
The standard for negligence is that a person did not act as a reasonable individual would have under similar circumstances. Your lawyer will work with medical experts to determine if negligence contributed to your child’s hemorrhage. If it did, they would sue the negligent individual.
One or more defendants named in your lawsuit may not have been negligent but could still be liable.
A hospital or other type of facility where your child’s injury occurred may not have contributed to your child’s injury. However, they may be liable for the actions of those they employ or allow to operate within their facility. This relationship could make them responsible for some share of your losses.
