Each year thousands of newborn babies are inflicted with birth injuries caused by health care providers. Birth injuries are physical injuries that often occur due to medical negligence during pregnancy, the birthing process, or even after birth. Birthing injuries can vary in severity from being a short-term injury to a mental and/or physical disability that can last a lifetime. Many times a birth injury can require a lifetime of support from family and expensive medical care.
Listed below are common forms of birth injuries:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s Palsy (also referred to as Brachial Palsy)
- Bleeding in the brain
