Need a Tampa Birth Injury Attorney?
A birth injury is an injury that is incurred by an infant during the birthing process. Birth injuries differ from birth defects, which are caused by genetics. Birth injuries usually result from medical complications that arise during the birthing process. For example, a doctor may inappropriately use a medical device, which results in the infant being injured. In some cases, these injuries may be unavoidable, and may be considered a risk associated with the child delivery process. These risks are things that most parents are aware of or even advised of by their doctors.
However, there are many birth injuries that are not natural, or part of the overall delivery process. These other birth injuries are typically caused by doctor, nurse, or hospital negligence, and can lead to the infant incurring irreversible, even fatal, side effects and symptoms.
