Almost nothing can be more devastating and traumatic than a birth injury to a child. In the United States, thousands of mothers suffer from complications during pregnancy and delivery that result in birth injury every year. Injuries can be temporary or permanent in nature. And not all injuries are due to neglect by a medical professional. However certain types of injuries suffered at birth can be more indicative of medical malpractice.
