Giving birth has always been risky. Parents worry about their child’s safety even before they’re born, but childbirth is usually the most exciting, agitating and anxious time of all the pregnancy. While with the medical and technological advances it has become safer and easier to control, it sometimes can go wrong causing mild or severe problems for the mother and/or the child.
According to this infographic by Wapner Newman, 6-8 out of every thousand born babies end up suffering birth injuries. Some of the most common birth injuries are cerebral palsy, hypoxia and head trauma. Unfortunately, these kinds of problems are, on occasion, due to medical malpractice or negligence. That’s why if you believe that your doctor might have done something wrong during the pregnancy or delivery, you should contact a Pennsylvania personal injury attorney to investigate the circumstances surrounding it. You deserve to know the truth and to receive appropriate compensation.
