Most mothers are busy preparing the nursery, thinking up a name and dreaming of a bright future her child will have. But those dreams can be shattered and joy replaced with heartbreak if the baby is born with a birth injury. Babies injured at birth can become permanently disabled and require life-long care. They can even die from a birth injury.

Not all birth injuries are the fault of physicians or other medical staff. However, if negligence or failure to act appropriately is suspected as the cause for the birth injury, there may be reason for litigation.
