What Is a New Hampshire Birth Injury? 

A birth injury, sometimes referred to as a traumatic birth, is any preventable injury that happens right before, after, or during the process of giving birth due to a medical professional’s negligence. Every day, over 70 babies are born with a preventable birth injury. Doctors, nurses, surgeons, and other healthcare providers are medically trained for a number of years to respond to emergency situations that arise. When a medical professional fails to respond in a way that is standard in the medical industry, you may seek damages for losses you endured due to their mistake. 

To evaluate whether you have a medical negligence case, consider whether a different medical professional with the same expertise would have responded in a manner that would have avoided a birth injury in the same circumstance.
