Birth Injury Resources From MyPhillyLawyer And The Birth Injury Team
The birth of a new baby and the starting of a new, or growing of an existing, family is often considered one of the best days in a parent's life. After nine months of waiting, hoping, praying and preparing to welcome your new family member into this world, finding out that something went wrong or that a mistake was made causing injury to your perfect baby boy or girl is heart-wrenching.
We know you have questions:
- Some medical - What happened? What went wrong? Does my child have a birth injury?
- Some emotional - How could this happen? How could the doctor, nurse, hospital do this to me and my family? Do they understand what they've done?
- Some legal - What rights do I have? What rights does my newborn child have? Should I take legal action?
That's why we created BirthInjuryInfo.org. When you want answers in the privacy of your own home, when you are searching for information on caring for your child with a birth injury or birth defect, BirthInjuryInfo.org is available to you anytime, day or night.

Understanding Birth Injuries And Birth Defects
There are several possible causes of birth injuries and defects:
- Complications during pregnancy
- Mistakes by health care professionals during the labor and delivery process
- Misuse or misdosing of medication, such as Pitocin, during labor and delivery
- Genetic disorders including defects passed from parents or abnormalities in the newborn's own genes
A birth defect is generally an inherited genetic abnormality while a birth injury is most often the result of an error by the doctor or nurse involved in your care.
