Average Birth Injury Settlement in Michigan [2024 Updated]

Birth injuries can have long-term effects on the mother, child, and family. When birth injuries are the result of a breach of the standard of care, legal action may be warranted .

Birth Injuries and Medical Malpractice

Common examples of medical malpractice which can result in birth injuries include:

  • Failure to properly monitor the baby at the time of labor and delivery.
  • Failing to perform a medically necessary C-section at the appropriate time, resulting in complications for both mother and baby.
  • Improperly using delivery tools, such as a vacuum extractor or forceps, resulting in injuries to the baby.
  • A failure to properly treat infections, resulting in harm to the mother and/or baby.

Negligence that results in harm to an infant or the mother can still make the provider liable.

Medical Expenses

If a doctor’s malpractice resulted in your child developing a disability, , the child’s past and future medical expenses are included in the damages of the case. If your child requires therapy, a caregiver, or other medical treatment to maintain or improve their health, these costs will be factored into your case.

A common birth injury that can be caused by medical malpractice is infant brain damage, resulting in cerebral palsy.
