Who can be sued for a birth injury caused by medical malpractice?

Any medical professional who was involved in or contributed to the accidents or omissions that caused the injury can be sued. This can include the obstetrician involved in delivering the child, the attending nurses and support staff, and even the hospital where the birth took place. However, every claim is different - consult with a birth injury lawyer to determine who should be liable for your child's injuries.
