Long Beach Birth Injuries Attorney
Overview of Birth Injuries
Giving birth to a child is an important and anticipated event. Unfortunately, a relatively high percentage of births can involve injuries to the child or to the mother. The damage sustained in such injuries can be relatively minor, be it bruising or light abrasions, or very serious, such as brain damage or even death. Oxygen deprivation during a birth can cause terrible injuries and damages, including mental retardation, behavioral problems and difficulties or in the worst cases, brain death. In many cases there are natural factors that contribute to these injuries, such as the size of the child, or its position in the womb. But injuries can also be caused by negligence or gross oversight on the part of the medical staff responsible for delivering the child. In this case, the mother or both parents of the child has the right to file a legal claim against the individuals or facility responsible, and the help of a Long Beach personal injury attorney is vital in any such tragic case.
