Birth injuries can range from temporary bruising on the baby’s head and face to more serious lifetime conditions such as brachial palsy, cerebral palsy, brain damage, or even death. The most serious of these injuries can require a lifetime of care.
What you need to know about birth injuries
Sadly, sometimes no one is at fault when bad things happen. But if a healthcare provider’s negligent care or mistake causes harm—whether for poor judgment, inadequate training, malicious intent or simple human error—they may be responsible for medical malpractice.
Proving liability in these complex cases requires specialized legal and medical expertise. Victims have a right to monetary compensation for previous, current and future medical expenses, and other costs and losses. Settlement money usually goes into a trust fund for the child.
