Birth Trauma Litigation

The birth of a child is one of life's most precious moments. Nothing surpasses the wonder and excitement of welcoming a newborn into your family.

However, the joy of childbirth can quickly become overshadowed by tragedy when something goes awry. If your newborn suffered significant birth trauma, you are not alone. Medical malpractice contributes to an unfortunate number of birth injuries in the United States. According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 2,000 infants are afflicted with birth injuries every year.

What Causes Birth Injuries?

Birth injuries do not happen in a vacuum. In many cases, the cause can be traced to negligence or carelessness on the part of the attending physician, nurses, staff or even the hospital itself. Any number of lapses may have set off a chain reaction, culminating in devastating harm to an innocent child.
