The occurrence of a birth injury is one of the saddest moments in a parent's life. When complications during labor or delivery result in a birth injury, a parent's greatest fear may be realized.
During the difficult time immediately following a birth injury, it is important for the parents to seek legal advice to find out if there is any legal action they can take against the doctor or other health care staff. If medical malpractice or negligence on the part of the obstetrician or delivery nurse caused the infant's injury, then a legal action for medical malpractice may provide the relief of financial security for the injured child throughout his or her lifetime.
