You’ve waited for 40 long weeks for your previous new arrival. The big day is stressful and exciting and exhausting all at once. More than anything, you want your little one to be healthy. The vast majority of deliveries are uncomplicated, but sometimes things go wrong.
While some injuries can’t be avoided, others are the result of medical negligence. Doctors, nurses, and other medical care providers do their best for you and your child, but they may be overworked and overstressed and under-rested. They can make mistakes. Those mistakes can have a serious impact on your child’s life.
