Yes, you can sue if your twins or triplets were born premature. Infants that are born prematurely are at higher risk for birth defects since they are often underdeveloped and have a low birth weight. Often times, these birth defects can affect the infant for the rest of their lives. Infants that are born earlier than 32 weeks and weigh less than three and a half pounds are at a substantially greater risk of infection or permanent disabilities such as cerebral palsy.
Trained nurses should be able to identify situations in which a twin or triplet might suffer serious injuries due to a premature birth and take all steps necessary to prevent injury or harm to the babies. If you had twins or triplets and went into preterm labor and your physician did not try to prolong the pregnancy or take other action to prevent injury or harm to the babies, you may have the legal right to file a Michigan birth injury lawsuit.
