Birth Injury Myths and Facts

by John McKiggan

Distinguishing the facts from the myths surrounding birth injuries can be an overwhelming and stressful endeavor for current and future parents alike. No parent enjoys thinking about the thought of something happening to their child—or remembering that something has happened to them—but understanding the facts (and your legal options) can be an immense aid for parents with children affected by birth injuries stemming from medical malpractice.

What causes Cerebral Palsy? Is it too late to file a birth injury claim? Can I prove medical negligence in my claim? Most importantly, how can I seek justice for my child if I cannot afford a lawyer?

We’ve created our Birth Injury Law: Myth & Fact infographic to help answer these questions—and more—as a resource for BILA members’ clients across all of Canada.
