Welcoming a new baby is an exciting milestone for families. Childbirth is a complex process with many factors at play. While many doctors follow safe and healthy birthing guidelines, acting negligently can cause life-altering impacts to the baby being delivered.
Children may require follow-up surgeries, therapies or medications to adapt to the damage caused by medical negligence during childbirth. The cost for this additional medical support falls on the family. With emotional and monetary tolls mounting, many are seeking birth negligence compensation. In response, many parents have filed lawsuits against doctors, hospitals or other responsible parties for their child’s injuries during birth.
