The safety of a mother and her child is in the hands of a medical team during childbirth. Mistakes can sometimes happen through no fault of the medical team. However, some mistakes are the direct result of a team member’s failure to observe accepted and recognized standards of care.

Our medical malpractice attorneys know how to work with obstetric experts to evaluate just what happened in the case of a birth injury. Was there a negligent failure to order a C-section based on the mother's physical characteristics or fetal distress during breech delivery? Did a failure to monitor vital signs lead to asphyxiation resulting in cerebral palsy or other brain damage? Did improper use of surgical instruments cause nerve damage to the neck or shoulder of the fetus?

We give our clients honest advice about the merits of their claims and complete support through all the obstacles that can come up between the commencement of the lawsuit and the resolution of the case.
