While the arrival of a new baby is one of the most exciting times in a parent’s life, learning that your child has been born with a birth injury can be devastating for many parents. What’s most upsetting about the situation is that a large majority of birth injuries are preventable if doctor’s properly monitor threats that may complicate the birth of the child. Both mother and child should be carefully monitored throughout the pregnancy so that any health risks can be addressed promptly to ensure a healthy birth. It is a natural assumption to believe that the doctor that you have trusted to deliver your child is properly trained and capable to perform the necessary procedures during the delivery. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Negligent doctors and medical staff members cause thousands of newborns to be injured each year. If a child is mishandled by the doctor or medical staff, birth injuries may occur even after the delivery.
