Holding Negligent Doctors Responsible For Birth Injuries
Welcoming a baby into your family should be a time of joy. Although the risk of a medical mistake during pregnancy or delivery is rare, the results can be devastating. A preventable error can turn a wonderful event into a tragic one.

We can provide you with the edge you need to hold negligent medical professionals accountable for the pain your family has endured. We will do everything in our power to secure the best possible results for you and your family.
Common Causes of Birth Injuries
You entrust your health, as well as your child’s, to medical professionals. When those doctors, nurses or even hospitals breach that trust, your child could suffer injuries ranging from broken bones to serious spinal cord or brain injuries. Just like every child is unique, so is every birth injury incident. However, common causes include the failure to:
- Recognize signs of distress in the fetus or the mother
- Diagnose medical conditions correctly or at all
- Perform a cesarean section when necessary
- Use proper care or tools during birth
Determining the cause of the injury is an important step to filing a medical malpractice claim, as well as establishing the fault of the medical professionals involved. Our medical malpractice lawyers understand how these cases work, and we can take the burden off your shoulders. We personally handle all aspects of your case because we want you to focus on taking care of your baby.
Passionate Support For Your Family at Every Step
A birth injury can put your family through emotional trauma, and seeking the proper medical treatment for your child can be expensive. Recovering financial compensation may not account for all the damages your family has suffered. However, it can help you pay for medical bills and support your family when you need it most.
