Birth Injury And Birthing Complications

Has a Birth Injury Shattered Your Child's Life?

A birth injury is traumatic for a child, as well as the entire family. A baby suffering a serious brain injury or muscle and organ damage during birth may require a lifetime of medical care. For the family, it could mean 24-hour institutional care for the rest of the child's life. Parents may need to consider legal action against the negligent doctor and hospital because significant financial resources will be required for many years.
