Birth Injuries

If your child suffers from a serious medical condition after a difficult delivery, it is extremely important to talk to an experienced medical malpractice attorney immediately. The law requires that you act quickly to file a medical malpractice claim against the obstetrician or other medical professional who is responsible for your child’s birth injury.

Not all complications during delivery are due to medical negligence. More than compensation, what most parents of a child who suffers a serious birth injury need is answers. What really happened? Who is to blame? Who is responsible to pay for physical therapy or lifetime care?
