Birth Injuries: When is an injury considered a birth injury?

Share Button

A specific category of medical malpractice, birth injury cases refer to negligence surrounding a woman’s pregnancy that results in injury to the infant. Because of the name, people commonly believe that birth injuries can only happen while the mother is giving birth.

However, there are actually three phases in which a birth injury can occur:

  1. During Prenatal Care
  2. During the Birth Process
  3. During the Postpartum Period
