Medical Practitioners swear by an oath to care for patients to the best of their ability and do no harm. When carelessness or negligence breaks that oath, and you are left to suffer the consequences alone, The Doctor Lawyer Team will stand by your side.

Statute of Limitations for Birth Injuries

In most states, the birth injury statute of limitations begins when the injury is discovered for the first time. For example, if your child’s birth injury was found the day they were born, you have a set time frame from the moment of birth to file your lawsuit.

In some cases, your child may not be diagnosed with a birth injury until later in their life. Suppose an injury caused by medical negligence is discovered months or years into your child’s life. In that case, the birth injury statute of limitations time window will begin at the time of discovery — not at the time of birth. This allows parents more time to establish their case and work with an experienced birth injury lawyer.

Not all states follow the discovery rule. It is critical to speak with an attorney for more information about your state's birth injury statute of limitations.

Cerebral Palsy and Erb's Palsy: Common Birth Injuries

Cerebral palsy is not a disease. It is brain damage usually caused during pregnancy or birth. In some cases, young children also develop cerebral palsy after a head injury. Here are some other significant details about cerebral palsy:

  • An estimated 500,000 Americans have the condition, which causes permanent physical disabilities.
  • At least 4,500 new cerebral palsy cases are diagnosed each year.
  • Some estimates of new cerebral palsy cases are as high as 10,000 each year.

Babies who sustain a birth injury or develop cerebral palsy due to medical error tend to require a lifetime of care and treatment.

Erb’s palsy is a condition caused by nerve damage around the shoulder or brachial plexus. This generally occurs during a difficult childbirth. Also known as brachial palsy, Erb’s palsy is a paralysis of the arm that either resolves on its own over time or may require surgery to correct.
