Birth injuries occur in 27 out of 1000 births

When a baby is born with an injury injury, the family may be faced with a future that will involve complicated and prolonged care for that child. Complicating the situation is the fact that parents are often uneducated about the cause of their child’s condition.

In some cases, a birth injury may go undetected for months or years. The birth injury may be due to one or more medical mistakes during pregnancy, labor or delivery. Parents are often left with the incorrect impression that their child simply has a birth defect, and that it could not have been prevented. Sometimes this is true, but often times it isn’t.

Most parents have no way of knowing what happened to their child and many do not know where to begin to search for answers.
