While many parents are able to welcome their newborn children into the world with no complications, the sad reality is that there are a large number of people whose children sustain birth injuries due to the negligent conduct of a medical professional. As parents, you trust that the doctor you chose to provide pre- and post-natal care, not to mention deliver your child, would do so with the diligence and responsibility that you expect. However, many doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals, sadly, fail to provide this level of care, leading to the undue injury of innocent children.

Fortunately, Connecticut residents often have the opportunity to seek compensation and justice for these losses from the medical professionals responsible for their child's injuries. After experiencing a birth injury, taking such legal action can be a major step toward recovery.
Common Types of Birth Injuries
Tragically, babies can be seriously harmed in many ways, both before and during delivery. These birth injuries can cause devastating and often life-long harm to a child, something which they and their family will have to cope with. Unfortunately, some of the most common birth injuries that newborn babies and their families are subjected to include:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb's Palsy
- Brachial Plexus Injury
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Unrecognized Gestational Diabetes
- Uterine Rupture
- Umbilical Cord Strangulation
Sadly, medical professionals do not always follow the appropriate medical regulations or provide the appropriate treatment to avoid causing devastating birth injuries. As such, these and the many other birth injuries that babies all over America develop can cause not only physical trauma, but psychological and financial suffering.
