According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, in the United States:
As a parent, you will stop at nothing to protect your child. That’s why there are few situations more devastating than a birth injury suffered by your newborn during the prenatal period or during labor and delivery, especially one that could have been prevented. Preventable injuries and conditions resulting from negligence at birth may include cerebral palsy, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, brachial plexus palsy (Erb’s palsy), spinal cord injuries, bone fractures, or even death. These injuries to your baby can turn what should be the happiest moment of your life into a tragic moment filled with sadness, despair, and confusion with many unanswered questions. And the effects of a birth injury often last for a lifetime, setting the child up for years of around-the-clock care and never-ending medical bills.
If your child suffered a birth injury as a result of medical negligence, it’s imperative that you get every penny of the compensation you deserve from those that are responsible—your child’s future depends on it. You are entitled to the kind of compensation that covers all of your child’s medical bills and fully accounts for every day of his or her pain, suffering, and loss of life’s pleasures. Perhaps most importantly, you will need compensation that also will provide for your child’s specialized medical treatment and individual care needs for the rest of his or her lifetime, including when you are no longer around.
