Every expectant parent dreams of a perfectly healthy child, born with boundless possibilities in life. A birth injury can rob parents of that dream and saddle their child with mental and/or physical impairments that can severely limit the child’s future options.
What Is a Birth Injury?
A birth injury is an injury that was caused by malpractice during pregnancy, labor or child birth. If you suspect your child suffered a birth injury, it is important to discuss your case with an attorney who is experienced in medical malpractice claims.
