A Birth injury is attributable to medical malpractice in many cases. Under normal circumstances, when under the care of a competent medical professional, a severe disabling birth injury are preventable and do not occur. Whenever an allegation of a birth injury due to medical malpractice is alleged, the defense attorney will almost always attempt to blame the injury on a birth defect. Fortunately, it is fairly easy to determine whether or not an injury that presents at birth is due to a genetic predisposition to having a given disability or is the result of medical negligence resulting in injury or disability to an otherwise healthy infant.According to the CDC, birth defects are “structural changes in one or more parts of the body.” A list of common birth defects can be found here. Obviously, structural changes are much different than injuries.
