Having a child is often a dream that parents plan years in advance and it is supposed to be among the happiest times in their lives. So it is no surprise that injuries that occur during pregnancy or doing childbirth can be particularly devastating on a child as well a family.
Birth injuries can result from trauma that occurs to your unborn child while still in the womb or during childbirth.
Some injuries, particularly if they are neurological, may not manifest itself until the child gets older, which can make assessing the full extent of the harm more complex. Because of this reality, the statute of limitations for trauma to a minor does not begin to run until the child turns 18 years old.
