Birth injuries can occur if a doctor delivering a baby acts negligently or fails to perform their duties competently. When a doctor errs when delivering a baby, it can have life-altering effects on the child. Birth injuries that can occur as a result of negligence or malpractice include developmental delays, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, bone fractures and other conditions that can dramatically impact the child’s mental and physical development. It is crucial for medical professionals to act within the guidelines of their responsibilities to avoid causing irreversible harm to the baby or the mother.
If you or a loved one was a victim of medical negligence that resulted in a severe birth injury, know that you are not alone. It is also important to understand that you may have a case if you or your child suffered injuries due to the negligent actions of a medical professional.
