What must be pleaded in a birth injury claim?

Birth injury legal cases are a subset of the wider legal field of medical malpractice. All cases of medical malpractice must be supported by evidence of negligence or other wrongdoing in order for an injured party to prevail and receive the damages they may need to get past their incident-related losses. In Honolulu, a child harmed in a preventable or negligence-based labor and delivery incident may have a claim for damages based on their sustained birth injuries.

Fatal leg infection lawsuit settles

In Hawaii, medical malpractice cases are not always related to complicated medical procedures or a birth injury. Mistakes over simple medical diagnoses or treatment can be fatal. Earlier this month, the parents of an eight-year-old girl settled a lawsuit over the failure to treat a strep infection that led to the girl's death after three trips to the emergency room.
