Birth Injuries

Legal compensation can be sought when a baby is injured during the birthing process or prior to birth, due to carelessness, neglect, or reckless act by a medical healthcare provider. The individual doctor, nurse, EMT, or any other at-fault party can be held responsible for this horrible form of negligence and the devastating resulting injuries. In the case of a birth injury, compensation can be sought that will include both past and future medical expenses, including pain and suffering, disability or disfigurement, reduced quality of life, loss of future earnings, loss of consortium, emotion pain and suffering, as well as other related damages.
