Birth Injuries In Toronto

"Birth Injury" refers to infants during pregnancy, labour, delivery, or the post-delivery period. The injury often involves the brain. This can be diagnosed soon after birth, or there may be a delay before it is recognized. Birth injuries can lead to permanent disabilities.

Cerebral palsy (CP) refers to a disorder of the brain that can impact movement, muscle tone, and posture. CP is caused by damage to the brain. This could be related to a lack of oxygen, or another type of injury to an infant's brain either before birth or shortly after. A diagnosis of CP can occur later in a child's life. Call a medical malpractice lawyer to understand whether the CP may have been related to obstetrical malpractice.

Obstetrical negligence typically refers to errors either before, during, or immediately after the delivery of a child. Obstetrical negligence can result in severe injuries with long-lasting impact.

Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) generally refers to brain damage caused by a lack of oxygen. A severe lack of oxygen is called "hypoxia." Depending on the severity of the HIE, the infant can suffer from developmental or cognitive delays, motor impairment, and potentially ongoing seizures.

Birth-related hypoxia should be investigated by a qualified medical malpractice lawyer, including a complete review of the medical records and brain imaging.

A perinatal stroke is a neurologic syndrome that is caused by brain injury at some point prior to or shortly after birth. To understand the cause of a stroke, it is important to review the timing of the condition and the subtype of the stroke.

Hypoglycemic brain injury occurs when the infant's brain does not have enough glucose. To understand whether the injury was preventable, it is important to review the full clinical condition of the infant, the timing of the symptoms, the brain imaging, and of course any intervention that did occur.

Kernicterus is a type of brain damage that can occur in a child with severe jaundice. The injury occurs when the bilirubin levels in the blood become too high and spread into brain issue. It is important to investigate every instance of kernicterus.

A case is as unique as the individual, and we recognize that the legal process can at times be a long and difficult emotional journey. We are here to help you on the road ahead.

To determine if you have a case, it is important for any lawyer to review the relevant medical records and to consult with experts. If your child has suffered a significant injury and you are concerned about the care provided, call us for a free consultation.

What is a Birth Injury Lawyer?

A birth injury lawyer is a personal injury lawyer with unique expertise in birth injury claims. Birth injury claims are considered a form of medical malpractice, which is a particularly challenging and complex part of personal injury law. The lawyers that work in medical malpractice must have specialized knowledge relating to medical accidents, delayed and missed diagnoses, medication errors and more.

What Types of Cases do Birth Injury Lawyers Take on?

A birth injury lawyer or birth injury attorney is equipped to handle medical malpractice claims relating to the period directly before, directly after, and during childbirth. Medical errors occurring during this period can lead to catastrophic injuries hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), stroke, hypoglycemic injuries, and kernicterus, which can cause a variety of profound, life-changing conditions, including cerebral palsy. If your child has been affected by a birth injury, contact Neinstein to schedule a consultation with a birth injury lawyer Toronto.

How Much Do Birth Injury Lawyers Cost?

The Toronto birth injury lawyers at Neinstein work on contingency, meaning you will not be asked to pay any legal fees until your claim has been successfully resolved – if we are unable to secure a settlement, we will not seek compensation.

What is the Deadline for Filing a Birth Injury Claim?

Ontarians have two years to file a birth injury claim, but that two-year time limit does not begin to expire at the time of birth. Generally speaking, minors who were injured at birth have until they turn 20 (two years after they turn 18) to decide to file a claim. However, if a litigation guardian is appointed, the time limit will begin to expire on the day of the appointment. Contact a birth injury lawyer Toronto to learn more.

How Much Compensation will I Receive in my Birth Injury Settlement?
