Let our experienced birth injury and medical malpractice attorneys help you protect your child’s rights.
Birth injuries result from problems during the delivery process that are handled incorrectly by the medical professionals involved. Birth injuries range from temporary bruising on the baby’s head and face to more serious conditions that last a lifetime (such as brachial palsy, cerebral palsy, or brain damage) and even death.
Birth injuries are not the same as birth defects. Birth injuries usually occur during the delivery of the baby, while birth defects are usually caused by genetic or environmental factors before the baby is born.
All pregnant women rely on healthcare of some kind, and sometimes bad things happen without anyone being at fault. But if a healthcare provider provides negligent care or commits an error —whether it’s because of poor judgment, lack of adequate training, malicious intent, or simple human error— then they may responsible for medical malpractice.
Birth injuries can mean a lifetime of care. If your child has been seriously injured, life will never be the same again. We can help you protect your child’s rights and get them what they deserve so they can build a good life.
You Need An Attorney Who’ll Fight For You
Medical malpractice claims and lawsuits are about keeping our communities safe.
Children who are the victims of birth injuries have a right to monetary compensation for previous and current medical expenses, future medical expenses, and other costs and losses. Settlement money usually goes into a trust fund for the child.
But claims and lawsuits that hold healthcare providers accountable for birth injuries do more than help victims and their families — they help keep our communities safe by making sure that the medical care all pregnant women receive meets minimal quality standards.
Help protect your community. Hold wrongdoers accountable for their negligence.
