A birth injury can be avoided in some cases, if you keep your head during the birthing process. If you believe your care is inadequate, or that you're being ignored, don't be afraid to make your feelings known. You may be able to save your baby, and yourself, from needless pain and suffering.
The Internet is a great place to begin your search for a good birth injury attorney. Although many of their websites are little more than elaborate ads, they can usually offer more information about their states, education, and accreditations than they can in any other venue.
