Difference Between Birth Injuries and Birth Defect

OBGYN Delivery Malpractice Claims
Children Injured due to Medical Malpractice during their delivery are entitled to monetary compensation

Birth injuries are those which occur because of another person’s negligence or lack of care. When you are injured at birth, by the negligence of a doctor you have the right to bring a lawsuit for your injuries.  Birth injuries occur when the doctor makes some type of error at the time of delivery, or the nurses make some type of error at or after the delivery. Birth defects are genetic abnormalities which are caused by outside factors not under the control of the OBGYN or nurses. Birth defects are actionable if you can prove the defect was caused by a drug which caused the injury, however this would be a different claim entirely. To assess whether you have a birth injury or defect you may need to have the info evaluated by a health professional or expert. Generally, a qualified expert will be able to quickly determine the cause of the injury and make a decision with regards to your injury.

How Long Do I Have To File an Birth Injury  Case

All medical malpractice lawsuits in California must be filed within 1 year from the date of the injury, certain exceptions apply. Generally you must first send a 90-day letter to all treating physicians before filing a lawsuit. A 90-day is a requirement in California and must be sent before filing a lawsuit for your injuries. Minors are always given additional time to file a lawsuit for their injuries. In California a minor-a child under the age of 6-allows for the lawsuit to be filed within 3 years from the date of the injury or before his/her 8th birthday. So if the child is under the age of 6 and discovers the injury they will have either three years from the date of the injury to bring a lawsuit or before they are 8 years of age, whichever is greater. Filing deadlines are critical in these types of lawsuits. If you do not file timely you will be barred from bringing a lawsuit for your injuries. It is imperative that you have a claim filed before the statute runs out. 90-Day Letter Tolling Statute California Code of Civil Procedure §364-365 requires that a 90-day letter be given as prior notice of your intent to file a lawsuit. The notice is required before filing any type of lawsuit against a health practitioner. This notice will also work to toll the statute and prevent it from running. When the 90-day letter is sent your time period for filing will be extended. If you have any questions feel free to contact us today we are happy to help.

DTLA Client Review

“I honestly cannot say enough good things about Farid. I never even truly became his client, as in I never paid him a single cent, and he helped me get my case settled with my current lawyer. I had accidentally contacted Farid’s firm in an attempt to contact my lawyer, who had ignored me for months. Farid contacted me himself within minutes of me talking to a live representative of theirs online (and this was really late at night, too).”
