Certain medications can result in birth defects in babies. For this reason, physicians must take great care whenever prescribing medications to a pregnant soon-to-be mother. In most cases, a birth defect case related to medication will target the treating physician, pharmacist or drug company responsible for providing or prescribing the damaging medication to the mother […]

No mother expects her child to be born with a serious medical condition, but the birthing process can be rough on babies at times — and a birth injury could be unavoidable. In other situations, however, a birth injury is entirely avoidable. When doctors detect the possibility of a birth injury during labor, they need […]

When something goes wrong during the birthing process, babies can suffer serious injuries.

If your baby suffers a birth injury or birth defect, your primary concern will be to get your baby the medical care that he or she needs to get better. However, this medical care can be expensive and difficult — if not impossible — for a new mother to afford. As such, many mothers who […]

Parents of children with severe birth injuries will want their children to have as normal a life a possible. However, when the birth injuries are permanent and disabling, children will likely require special services and special medical care — all of which can be costly. The next concern of parents will therefore be: “How are […]

When your innocent baby is born with a birth injury, due to no fault of your own, it’s a devastating feeling for any Philadelphia parent. We want our children to have the healthiest lives possible, and when we see our children with serious health problems, it’s never easy. Also, it might not be easy financially, […]

Children are a gift, not just to their parents, but also to their entire family. Unfortunately, there are times in which a doctor’s error during the delivery process causes a birth injury. In fact, in the United States, approximately five births out of every 1,000 will result in a birth injury. With this in mind, […]
