If you are a parent then your top priority in life and the thing that you want the most is to protect your children. That's one of the reasons why when medical malpractice results in a birth injury many people feel as though they are compelled to get justice for the wrong that has been done to their child. And they rightfully expect to get the financial compensation they need that will help them to make life as comfortable and significant as possible for their injured child.

If you have a child that was injured as a result of medical malpractice - one that has suffered from a birth injury - then it would be in your best interests to speak with an attorney who specializes in this area of law about the details of your particular situation. That's because if you try to do it yourself you will be facing a veritable army of lawyers, a handful of departments from the insurance companies that are involved, and much, much more.

And, since most medical malpractice attorneys work on a contingency basis you will not have to lay out any cash in order to have them represent you.

If your baby died as a result of birth injuries it is still very important for you to take action. If you do, then other families may not have to deal with the wrongful death of their yet-to- be-born children. Even though it will be difficult to deal with this while you are mourning, many families muster the strength to go ahead in order to set everything right.

Medical mistakes do not only happen in the delivery room. They can happen any time during your pregnancy, during the delivery of your child, or shortly after your baby is born. Even if an infant is unwittingly mishandled by a hospital worker it can have a life-long impact on the baby's well being.

Approximately twenty seven of every one thousand live births are reported cases of birth injuries.

A very high percentage of the people who initiate a birth injury lawsuit settle during the initial stages of the suit. If you do begin a lawsuit and have an attorney represent you then you will have the final say if a settlement is offered.

And, as a parent, you might receive damages for your emotional suffering in addition to the costs of caring for your birth injured child.

One of the major consequences of birth injuries is cerebral palsy.
