What causes birth injuries?
While it is a fact that some birth injuries may be unforeseeable, it may be possible to determine negligence based on medical malpractice, often related to an expected standard of care. This can take many forms, depending on each individual circumstance.
Another area where doctors have responsibility is to provide proper treatment. If it is determined that there were very clear errors during delivery, such as a delay in ordering a C-section or medication mistakes, these may be considered negligence on the part of the provider.
