Frequently Asked Questions about Birth Injuries in Virginia

My child has a birth defect. Can I sue for compensation?

It depends. There is a difference between birth defects and birth injuries. Birth injuries are a result of the negligence of healthcare professionals at birth or during pregnancy. Birth defects often result from various factors, including genetics or environmental factors. Birth injuries are preventable. However, birth defects aren’t always preventable. You can sue for birth injuries as they are a result of negligence. However, you can only sue for congenital disabilities if they were a result of the negligence of another party e.g. if the defect occurred as a result of the use of a defective drug, you can pursue compensation from the manufacturer of the drug.

If you’re wondering whether you have a valid birth injury claim or not, contact Drew Page to consult with an experienced birth injury attorney in Suffolk, VA. We will review the circumstances of your case for free to determine if you are eligible for compensation.

What should I do if I suspect my child suffered a birth injury?

Birth injuries aren’t always obvious. It isn’t uncommon for these injuries to go undiagnosed until much later. The symptoms of many of these injuries will only be noticed during the child’s development. It is therefore important to take action as quickly as possible when you suspect that your child has suffered a birth injury. You should seek medical attention to ensure your child gets the treatment they need. Getting treatment as soon as possible can help to prevent further complications. The treatment may even be able to reverse the damage caused by the birth injury.
