What is a Birth Injury?
Birth injuries refer to damage that an infant suffers during the process of labor and delivery.
Many birth injuries are from natural causes, however many are caused by a medical professional’s mistake or gross negligence.
Birth statistics from the CDC indicate that suggest that 27 of every 1,000 births have some sort of preventable complication or injury associated with them.
When there is a lapse in judgment or care during childbirth and a child is harmed, the health care professional may be found liable for what is known as “medical malpractice.”
There are multiple people who may be held responsible for a birth injury other aside from just the doctor. This includes the nurses, the support staff, technicians and even the Rhode Island or Massachusetts hospital itself.
Given the complexity and emotional of birth injury cases, it is important to contact a Mass or Rhode Island birth injury attorney – especially if the birth defect suffered on delivery could have been prevented.
