Statistics show that approximately 27 of every 1,000 births in the United States result in a birth injury. In the state of California there are approximately 1,500 babies born each and every day. According to the statistics, 40 babies a day are born in California with some type of birth injury.

What Is A Civil Lawsuit?

The most common grounds for a civil lawsuit involve negligence. These include motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, swimming and diving accidents, boating accidents and premises liability (slip-and-fall) accidents. When an accident occurs due to negligence, the injured party may file a claim against the negligent party to recover all their damages. Damages generally include current and future medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering, current and future loss of income, loss of enjoyment and in certain cases, punitive damages.

It is also imperative that you file your claim within the time allotted by the state of California. The California statute of limitations for negligent tort cases has generally been one year. Recent legislation has extended the statute of limitations to two years. California’s statute of limitations in negligent tort cases starts on the date of the injury (for example, a motor vehicle accident) or on the date that you determine an injury has occurred (for example, a pharmaceutical side effect). We strongly recommend that you contact our office immediately following the injury.

We invite your call at 818-991-8900 to discuss your situation and options.

We carefully screen all medically related cases. Medical negligence is extremely difficult to prove, and requires qualified experts who are willing to testify that the care given failed to meet the appropriate standards, and that this failure caused injuries.
