Virginia birth injuries may occur when medical professionals do not exercise the proper standard of medical care during the delivery process. While some birth injuries are the unavoidable result of legitimate complications, many are caused by the negligence and recklessness of the parties responsible for the delivery. In Virginia, if a child is left with a severe birth injury as a result of medical negligence, the family of the injured child may file a birth injury lawsuit. Virginia birth injury lawsuits can help families recover damages for pain and suffering; disfigurement; cost of future medical expenses; cost of lost wages, loss of normal life; and punitive damages.
