If you are the parent of a child who has been diagnosed with a medical or psychological condition caused by a birth injury, it is important that you act immediately to evaluate whether there is a relationship between the injury and medical malpractice.
Doctors are human beings — as are nurses, midwives, and other healing arts and medical professionals. As humans, they often make preventable mistakes while performing the delivery of an infant. Unfortunately, such mistakes can cause lifelong disabilities that require care and treatment. No matter how severe the injury, it is of great importance to seek capable and experienced representation to obtain justice for the preventable harm.

A short list of medical mistakes that may cause birth injuries includes the following:
