Yes, you can file a Michigan birth injury lawsuit if your baby was harmed by a vacuum extractor during birth. A vacuum extractor must be used very carefully at the time of the delivery of the baby due to vulnerability of the skull. Physicians should be properly trained to sue vacuum extractors without injury or incident to the baby. However, when a medical mistake occurs and the baby suffers permanent injuries due to a vacuum extraction injury, the parent of the child can file a Michigan birth injury lawsuit. These lawsuits seek compensation for the injuries to the child and also for the significant expenses it will take to care for the child over his or her lifetime. This can include medical expenses, special education expenses, and even necessary housing costs.
