The health of a newborn child is the most critical concern to expectant parents. When the careless choices made by hospital staff or doctors cause preventable injury to a new baby or the mother that negligence often results in a disabling birth injury or death. Seeking guidance from an experienced birth injury lawyer is a vital step to ensure your rights are protected, and those responsible for your child’s birth injury are held accountable.
The law requires that hospitals, doctors and nurses, or other care providers who cause a birth injury by their careless choices provide compensation for the harm and losses that result.
