Birth Injuries

Did Your Doctor Cause A Birth Injury?

Childbirth can be incredibly complicated. With mother and baby subjected to physiological stress and a wide range of possible complications, many injuries can occur, some of which can have long-term effects for both mother and baby. While some birth injuries simply cannot be prevented, other injuries occur because of the negligence of medical professionals and/or the hospitals where they work. When a doctor’s or nurse’s actions (or failure to take action) violate accepted standards of care, a medical malpractice claim may be an appropriate course of action.
