Types of Birth Injury Cases
Birth injures can occur for a plethora of reasons. In the instances in which birth injuries are caused by the negligence and careless mistakes of healthcare providers, such as failing to recognize fetal positioning, umbilical cord issues, fetal distress, or delaying caesarean section (c-section) procedure, you may be eligible to hold the responsible party legally liable for their actions.
