At The Birth Injury Legal Network, our mission is to educate parents on birth injuries caused by medical malpractice and raise awareness about birth injuries that could have been prevented. If you are the parent of a child with a birth injury, find out why and how it happened. Ask questions and, more importantly, consult with a Birth Injury lawyer right away. Below we've listed a variety of resources for you to find out more about your child's injury and collaborate with other parents and professionals who can offer support.
