While most people regard the birth of a baby as a time to celebrate, some parents find themselves
unable to do so. Often, this is because their baby has been injured due to a birth injury, or more
specifically, medical malpractice. While rare, birth injuries occur far too often every year, and
these injuries can lead to lifelong problems, including heart, brain and lung deficiencies, as well
as the need for constant care in a residential treatment facility. In the worst cases, babies who
suffer birth injuries due to medical malpractice end up never leaving the hospital at all.
Because parents place their trust within the medical professionals who handle their deliveries,
many are unaware of the dangers they are facing. Something as simple as inattentiveness can
cause a baby to be improperly delivered, dropped or mishandled, and these actions can then
lead to a lifetime of suffering. When a child is damaged at birth, it may mean many years, or
a lifetime, of suffering, and this is true for the parents and loved ones of the baby as well. A
baby who suffers injury during birth due to malpractice may require constant care throughout
their life, and the expenses for such care can range into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Additionally, injured babies may require corrective and preventative care, both of which can cost
a family years worth of agony, time and money.
