There are several kinds of birth injuries that can take place during the birthing process. It's not uncommon for babies to suffer some injuries, because their bodies are compressed and pushed through the tight birth canal in most cases. It's normal to see injuries such as bruises or even some broken bones, although broken bones are less common.
In most cases, when babies suffer birth injuries, those injuries will recover without treatment. However, there are some injuries that are caused by neglect or negligence, and those injuries can be life-threatening or impact the child for the rest of his or her life. When negligence is the cause, that's when families have a right to seek out compensation for their child's care.
