Let alone the emotional tragedy of a birth injury that causes life-altering affects to a newborn child, the financial toll of such an incident can be monumental. The medications, rehabilitative sessions and physical equipment that are commonly associated with such birth injuries can cost obscene amounts of money -- and these costs don't go away over time. A birth injury affects the entirety of a person's life, and the negligence that tragically and wrongfully put them (and their family) in such a position should not go unpunished.
