Anticipating the birth of a child is an exciting time for parents. Parents place their trust in doctors and medical staff to deliver a healthy baby, believing that the doctors have the experience and training to be able to successfully deliver the baby without any problems. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Every year, thousands of children suffer birth injuries due to the negligent actions and care of medical professionals. A majority of the common birth injuries are preventable if the mother and child are properly monitored and treated for any existing conditions that might affect the success of the delivery. Negligent doctors who do not correctly diagnose critical health problems before the birth put the mother and the child at risk for serious injuries. There is no guarantee, however, that a successful delivery will prevent injuries. After being born, a child may be subjected to bruising, facial paralysis, nerve damage, and fractures if the doctor mishandles the baby. The negligence of a doctor has the potential to harm a mother or child at any point that they are in the doctor’s care.
