Ask any expectant parent what they hope for their soon-to-be-born child and the unanimous answer is that their child is born healthy. When a birth injury occurs, these new parents are devastated as they, their baby and the rest of their family face life altering consequences. Tragically, some birth injuries are the result of preventable errors and negligence on the part of doctors, nurses and other personnel who are present in the delivery room.
While no doctor would purposely cause harm, negligence can result in birth injuries leading to serious and life-long disabilities including head trauma, cerebral palsy, and even death. In some cases, negligence on the part of health professionals in the delivery results in harm to the mother. We have extensive experience handling these complex and technical cases. Speak with one of the lawyers in our medical malpractice group about your legal options if you and your child are dealing with the aftermath of a birth injury.
