Birth Injury

Ritchie Reiersen Personal Injury Attorneys

Visiting with a medical malpractice attorney should never be one of the expected events when a baby is born. Welcoming a new baby ought to be an exciting and celebratory event in a family’s life.

Unfortunately, there are times that negligent doctors and medical staff can cause serious injuries to a baby during the labor and delivery process.

Birth injury is defined as an impairment of the baby’s body function or structure due to an event that occurred at birth. It is important to note that birth injuries are different from birth defects and malformations, and are easily distinguished by focused clinical assessment.  There are a range of injuries that can happen from birth trauma; some will resolve quickly, while others will present life-long complications.
