Birth injuries can turn what should have been one of the happiest days in a parent’s life to the beginning of a lifetime of heartache and grief. While some birth traumas occur naturally as a result of the physical pressures on a fetus from the mother’s contractions and the fetus’s passage through the birth canal, other childbirth injuries are caused by the negligence of medical practitioners during a mother’s pregnancy or the labor and delivery stages of childbirth. The failure to diagnose or properly manage a woman’s diabetes or placental abruption during pregnancy; the failure to diagnose or properly handle complications such as nuchal cord or breech presentation; and the negligent assistance of a delivery made more difficult by shoulder dystocia are only a few of the many causes of children’s birth injuries due to medical malpractice. The law of every state recognizes that children who sustain birth injuries as a result of medical negligence are entitled to compensation for their suffering through the institution of medical malpractice suits against all those who are responsible for their injuries.
