Compensation for Birth Injuries in Washington
All types of birth injuries are distressing. The last thing new parents are expecting is to receive a birth injury diagnosis that could change the course of their child’s life. If negligence played a role in causing the injury, however, parents may be eligible for a financial award from the at-fault party. At Paulson Coletti Trial Attorneys PC, we know money will not compensate for your child’s serious injury. However, we also recognize that it can lend you financial stability and peace of mind during this distressing time.
- Existing hospital bills
- Lifelong medical costs
- Special education
- Disability accommodations
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- Lost future capacity to earn wages
- Pain and suffering
- Legal expenses
Not all birth injuries in Washington give rise to medical malpractice claims. To be eligible for financial recovery, your case must involve a breach of the duty of care under medical industry standards. You or your lawyer must prove – under the evidentiary burden of more likely to be true than not true – that the defendant owed you a standard of care, violated this standard and caused your infant’s injuries. Only then will you be eligible to receive a settlement or jury verdict.
