Birth injuries can be incredibly serious issues that forever impact the victim and his/her family. That’s why it’s important to understand your rights. Some of the most common types of injuries in this category include cerebral palsy, hypoxic and anoxic injuries, Erb’s palsy, eclampsia/preeclampsia, uterine rupture and cesarean birth issues.
Having a child should be a time of joy. If, instead, it turns to sorrow due to a birth injury, you should know that you’re not alone. These injuries are not uncommon, and they are often something that could have been prevented by medical professionals including the nurses and the doctors involved. Don’t believe the lie that what happened was simply unavoidable – that’s often not the whole truth. It’s something designed to keep patients from pursuing a legal claim, and often ends up with the victims left with nothing and wondering how to move forward.
I’m proud to work as a Columbus, Ohio birth injury lawyer. I work hard to ensure that victims and their families receive the help they need and deserve.
Statute of Limitations on Birth Injury
Keep in mind that there is a statute of limitations on birth injury claims. You have a single year to bring legal claims against the responsible individuals before the statute of limitations runs out and prevents you from filing. With that said, your child has until one year after their 18th birthday to pursue a claim. If your child is not considered mentally competent, then it is possible the statute won’t run out at all. I can you decide whether or not your case is a viable one and whether the statute of limitations has run out.
