Birth injury affects seven out of every 1000 births in the United States, and happens when a mistake, either accidental or neglectful, occurs during a baby's delivery. These injuries can range from minor bumps and bruises from rough handling of the newborn, to severe disabling conditions if proper care was not taken in the baby's delivery. If you think that your baby might have been injured during birth, you should consult your doctor and contact a birth injury lawyer.
