Common Surrey birth injuries
A birth injury is usually discovered during or after delivery, but they can occur at any point during the pregnancy. These injuries often occur during labor or delivery. However, medical errors that occur during pregnancy might not become apparent until after delivery.
While some catastrophic events occur with no one at fault, many stem from the negligence of the medical profession. When these errors occur, a birth injury lawyer may be able to help the victim’s family recover monetary compensation from the responsible person or entity.
