Common birth injury questions to address

Bringing a child into the world is supposed to be one of the greatest joys you ever experience. Unfortunately, if a medical professional makes a mistake that leads to an injury or illness, this can all take a turn for the worse.

It is important that you know the ins and outs of birth injuries, as this ensures that you understand your legal rights in Maryland in the event that something goes wrong.

Here is the most common question: What is the difference between a birth injury and a birth defect?

Generally speaking, an injury is caused by something gone wrong during the delivery of the child. This is in contrast to a defect that is typically associated with a problem during the pregnancy.

Other common birth injury questions include:

-- What is the process for determining who was at fault for causing the injury?

-- Is it possible to file a lawsuit in an attempt to receive compensation for the injury?

-- Are birth injuries common?

-- Are birth defects common?

-- Are there any steps parents can take to protect against a birth injury?

You may need to address some or all of these questions at some point. Most importantly, you should focus on the health of your child. Even though he or she has been injured at birth, there are steps that can be taken to improve his or her overall level of health.

A birth injury is nothing to take lightly as it can have a major impact on the future of the child, as well as his or her parents.
