Birth injury occurs when the actions or inaction of medical professionals cause injury to a baby during pregnancy, labor, delivery OR THE NEO-NATAL PERIOD. There are MANY ways for mothers and babies to be injured when healthcare providers are NEGLIGENT.
If you believe your child has been the victim of medical malpractice, our experienced and dedicated birth injury attorneys are here to review your claim free of charge and help you determine the most effective way forward.
