Many injuries during labor and delivery are caused by grossly-negligent care by delivery room doctors, midwives, and/or nurses who fail to follow well-established medical protocols designed to protect babies.

While some birth-related injuries are evident immediately, many are delayed and not recognized or diagnosed until many months or even years later when a child fails to meet developmental milestones.
