Childbirth is an admittedly difficult process for most women -- and it's easy for a tiny baby to end up injured. How do you tell the difference between simple bruises from the birth and a serious injury?
It's estimated that birth injuries are fairly common -- but not every birth injury is noticed right away.
If you're pregnant, the odds are good that someone has told you a delivery-room horror story or two already. However, the person who really should be giving you the scary details of your potential experience may not even say a word.
If your child suffered a preventable injury with long-lasting consequences during delivery, it's wise to consider what you'll need for an effective "life care" plan before filing a lawsuit.
How high of a risk do you think your unborn child has of suffering a serious birth injury in a modern medical facility?

Many women suffer an injury during childbirth. It's simply impossible to proceed through childbirth without some stress on the body. The pelvis is at risk for a fracture, or the pelvic floor might lose its strength.
