Every day, patients trust healthcare providers to give advice and care related to a variety of health problems. But sometimes mistakes occur, resulting in permanent, life-changing, or even fatal injury.
A birth injury is any type of injury sustained by an infant as a result of medical error or negligence during pregnancy or childbirth. Common birth injuries include:
- Cerebral Palsy (CP)
- Erb’s Palsy
- Skull fracturing
- Facial-nerve damage
- Bleeding or lack of oxygen inside the brain
Many times, these injuries could have been prevented. If you suspect that your child’s birth injury may have been a medical mistake, it is important to understand that you have legal rights and options.
