The state of New Mexico has stringent laws that protect families from those people who are responsible for causing a birth injury during or after childbirth. That is because the birth of a child is one the best things to happen to most couples, and they rely on medical professionals for a normal and smooth delivery of the baby. Unfortunately, some childbirth cases become extremely complicated due to an error during delivery. Often, this negligent medical malpractice is avoidable.
Birth injuries are defined as any injury acquired during the birth of an infant. Cerebral palsy is one of the most common forms of birth injuries. Cerebral palsy may be caused due to damage to the head or brain. With cerebral palsy, the infant's brain does not develop in the normal age process.
