If you are a parent, you will never forget the day that your child was born or the days that your children were born. There is nothing that seems more special to the people who have experienced the welcoming of a new person into the world, and the rush of emotions is as intense as anything in the human existence. It’s a time that’s all at once exciting, anxious, scary, proud, humbling, exhilarating and solemn in that every parent vows to the be best Mom or Dad possible when he or she meets that new child for the first time.
If you remember the intensity of the emotions you experienced that day, then you may be able to understand how horrifying it would be to hear the medical professionals in the delivery room start to become increasingly concerned that something has gone terribly wrong. Too many parents have experienced the horror of enduring a few seconds or even minutes where their newborn child was in grave danger. Many children survive that stressful situation, but many of them also face a lifetime of limitations, pain and suffering.
When you are finally told that your child has been injured during birth, you most likely notice many different questions start to race through your head in no particular order, including:

You need to take some time to focus on your child and the rest of your family to work through this difficult situation. You need legal assistance.
