Birth Injury Lawyer Toronto

A “birth injury” refers to an injury to an infant during pregnancy, labour, delivery, or the post-delivery period. Often these injuries involve the brain and can lead to permanent disabilities including spinal cord injuries, fractures, nerve damage, and other injuries. They can be caused by negligence by a physician, nurse, midwife, or the hospital.

If you or a loved one has suffered physical or emotional distress due to a birth injury, contacting a birth injury lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your potential case. The experienced lawyers at Beyond Law will be able to efficiently guide you step by step through your birth injury lawsuit and help you get peace of mind and, ultimately, secure the compensation you and your family deserve.

    Some birth injuries are caused by a severe lack of oxygen, also known as hypoxia, which can lead to conditions such as hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, which can cause developmental delays, cognitive and motor impairment, cerebral palsy or epilepsy. The use of equipment during delivery also can cause nerve damage or fractures, some of which may require additional surgery or leave lasting damage. The recovery journey can be difficult for both parents and child and costs and dealing with insurance companies can add to the stress.

    How Much Does a Birth Injury Lawyer in Toronto Cost?

    We believe that access to justice should not be determined by a person’s financial circumstances, or their ability to pay, but by the merits of their case. This is why we work on a contingency fee basis. That means you only pay legal fees on a percentage of recovery basis when your case is settled or once a verdict is obtained at a trial. Our fee model is designed to alleviate the financial hardship and stress experienced by our clients, many of whom are unable to work due to illness or injury.

    Please note that in the case of birth injury claims we may require a monetary retainer to obtain a preliminary expert medical opinion. The retainer will be used solely for the purpose of obtaining an expert opinion to determine the viability of the case. You will not be charged for our time.

    When Should I Hire a Birth Injury Lawyer in Toronto?

    If your or a loved one’s child has suffered serious injuries in an incident, working with an experienced Toronto birth injury lawyer will make it far more likely to receive a favourable financial settlement than you would otherwise. It is critical for you to get in touch with our Toronto birth injury lawyers as soon as possible to gather evidence and expert medical opinions.

    FAQs About Birth Injury Lawyers In Toronto

    A “birth injury” refers to an injury to an infant during pregnancy, labour, delivery, or the post-delivery period. Tragically, these injuries can sometimes affect a baby’s brain.

    While every case is different, in our experience the typical personal injury lawsuit settles within three to five years (and possibly longer if the case goes to trial). You will want to hire a lawyer that you are comfortable with – one that is open, approachable, easy to talk to, available for your questions, and clear in their answers. Effective communication with your lawyer is key to ensuring you have the information you need to understand the process and make informed decisions about your case. This is especially true during settlement discussions or negotiations.

    Each case has a unique set of facts. During the initial free, no-obligation consultation, the experienced lawyers at Beyond Law can review the facts of your case and provide you with some guidance on this issue. 

    As the lawsuit progresses, investigations are conducted, evidence is exchanged between the parties, and experts are consulted. Any of these factors can change our assessment of a case, which is why it is of utmost importance to hire a lawyer that you can trust.
