The birth of your child should be an exciting, joyous occasion, but if you were a victim of medical malpractice, you might have had a very different sort of experience. Medical malpractice occurs when medical practitioner or healthcare facility fails to provide adequate medical care, usually by making some mistake or acting negligently.

Birth injuries can be extremely devastating, especially if they result in long-lasting or permanent damage. If your child was harmed during or after birth due to someone else’s negligence, find out if you have a medical malpractice case on your hands.

If the nurses or doctors make any mistakes during this time, it could lead to serious birth complications for both the baby and the mother.
Some of the most common medical mistakes that lead to birth injuries include:
If your child was injured during or after delivery, make sure you find out if you have a medical malpractice case on your hands. When a doctor or medical professional’s negligence causes serious harm to you or your child, you may have a right to seek compensation for the resulting damage.
