What is a birth injury?

When a new baby joins the family, it is a happy event. After months of waiting and preparing, your new son or daughter finally arrives. As most residents of Maryland will agree, this is one of the happiest moments in a parent's life. However, it is a sad fact that things can still go wrong and your child may be injured during birth. Worse still, these injuries can sometimes have lifelong consequences.

Some of these injuries are caused by excessive forceps pressure, others by incorrect drug administration during the pregnancy. Any number of other medical errors can also lead to your baby being harmed and may result in permanent disabilities.

However, as this article on malpractice mentions, some children are simply born with injuries or disabilities without there being any identifiable cause. These are often known as birth defects rather than birth injuries. Even so, if you have any worries about your child's health or you suspect that medical negligence may have played a role in your child's injuries, do not be afraid to seek a second opinion or to take legal action on your child's behalf.

If your child has been affected by medical malpractice or you have any concerns about how you were treated during your pregnancy or birth, you may be feeling lost and unsure where to turn. Legal processes may seem like a lot to deal with when you are focusing on your baby's well-being. However, an attorney may be able to support you through this process and help you understand the options available to you. With this guidance, you can confirm the details of your claim and pursue the justice and compensation you and your child deserve.
