What Is a Birth Injury?
A birth injury may be defined as a type of physical injury that occurs during labor or delivery, or shortly after birth. Some birth injuries occur through no fault of an attending doctor or nurse. Others, however, occur as a result of a medical professional’s failure to provide standard care. These preventable birth injuries are the ones that provide grounds for medical malpractice lawsuits, which allow a family to pursue compensation for an injured child’s medical care, ongoing treatment, and more.
