Giving birth to a beautiful baby is supposed to be a wonderful event in the lives of the parents. Unfortunately, there are times when babies are born with cerebral palsy or suffer brain damage or other injuries because of negligence that takes place during prenatal care, labor or delivery. In addition, the delivery room can be the scene of personal injuries because of careless procedures that neglect the health of the mother.
Although most babies are born in a hospital surrounded by medical professionals, a birth injury can happen at almost any point during labor and delivery.
