The miracle of life is beautiful thing. Unfortunately there are times when due to medical mistakes what should have been a joyous event becomes a medical malpractice case. Birth defects and birth injuries have many causes. It can be due to the size of the baby or its position during the delivery process.
There are many types of birth injuries, and can occur before, during, or after the birth of the baby. During the period that the woman is pregnant she must be carefully monitored for any potential complications. If the medical staff does not carefully monitor the pregnant mother they could either miss the potential birth defect or miss being able to treat it in a timely fashion to reduce the effects of the personal injury. In some cases the birth defect can be treated during the pregnancy resulting in a relatively normal birth. If the medical staff is negligent however, the condition could worsen and even cause death of the infant and/or mother.
