Birth Injuries

Legal Representation When Birth Injuries Occur

After your newborn baby or young child has been diagnosed with a birth injury, you deserve answers to your pressing questions. How and why did this happen? What kinds of special needs will your child have? How will treatments, therapy and special accommodations be covered? Before moving forward, you have a right to know who was responsible, such as:

  • Obstetrician
  • Medical professionals, including nurses, technicians and pharmacists
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Fetal monitor manufacturer
