If you have a child you suspect suffers from a birth injury or birth defect such as cerebral palsy or Erb's palsy, but you are not sure when the injury happened or who is at fault, you may benefit from the services of a birth injury lawyer. A birth injury lawyer handles cases where babies' injuries occur during pregnancy or birth, even when the problem does not appear until later. Examples of birth injuries are spastic cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injury, brain damage, and broken bones. Birth injuries can also result from improper care during pregnancy. Birth injury lawyers know the medical factors causing these injuries, and the best medical experts for a particular case. Parents face difficult choices when a child is born with injuries, and a birth injury lawyer can help make these choices easier.
