During childbirth and immediately after, the baby and mother’s lives are entirely in the hands of the doctors and hospital staff.

Often times a catastrophic birth injury could have been prevented if a doctor or nurse had heeded the warning signs. Simple tests such as an ultrasound or biophysical profiles can tell the doctor or nurse if there is a problem. However, when negligence is involved, a doctor may fail to notice common and obvious signs, causing your child devastating injury.
A birth injury can result in your child requiring lifelong medical care. Not only that, but they may never be able to take care of themselves. If your doctor or hospital staff was responsible, a birth injury lawyer from our BBB A+ rated firm can work to recover compensation to help cover the cost of your child’s medical needs.
