Answer:

Typically, it is not the parent but the child who will be awarded compensation, as it was the child who was injured by the doctor’s negligence. If you win your birth injury claim/lawsuit against the doctor/hospital, compensation is usually delivered in the form of a trust. Keep in mind though that parents can sue for emotional distress—or if the mother was also injured because of the doctor’s behavior. If the child dies because of a doctor’s negligence, the compensation goes to the parents.
