Why You Should File A Birth Injury Lawsuit

If you or your child has suffered a birth injury, you might be wondering why you should spend the time and energy filing a lawsuit. You might want to grieve and process what happened, and you may not feel like you have it in you to do anything else. While this is absolutely okay, it’s important for you to know what benefits come from filing a birth injury claim.

1. Compensation

While money won’t change what happened, it will help you take care of your child for the rest of their lives. If you get the compensation you deserve, medical bills will be taken care of, and you will receive compensation for lost wages and future rehabilitation and treatment. Having the money to take care of these things will take that weight off your shoulders.

2. Closure

Sometimes it’s helpful to feel like you’ve gotten justice and made someone take responsibility for their actions. Again, this won’t change what happened, but it’s likely to change how you feel about it. Whoever is responsible for injuring you or your child should pay for it, literally and figuratively. If you’re able to see that someone is held accountable, it might help you make peace with what happened.

3. Prevention/Deterrent

While it’s not your responsibility to make sure the hospital or other medical professionals don’t injure anyone else through their negligence, this might be a byproduct of your medical malpractice claim. If no one ever holds doctors and hospitals liable, there’s no reason for them to change or do things differently. They will likely continue the same negligent behaviors until someone forces them to be accountable.
