Birth injuries are traumatic for the mother, child, and family. Indiana has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the US, and birth injuries and deaths are often preventable. If a medical provider injured you or your baby during childbirth, Indy Malpractice can help you file an Indiana birth injury claim and receive the compensation you deserve.
Do you qualify for a medical malpractice lawsuit?
To qualify for a birth injury claim in Indiana:
- You must be a parent of the deceased or injured baby.
- You must file within the Indiana medical malpractice statute of limitations.
- If your baby died shortly after birth as a result of the traumatic birth or is stillborn, then you have two years to file the birth injury claim from the date of the baby’s death.
- If your baby suffered a long-term traumatic birth injury like a brain injury or cerebral palsy, it must have occurred within the last eight years. You must file malpractice actions for a traumatic birth injury before the 8th birthday of the injured baby.
