Experiencing a pregnancy involves nine months of expectation, hopes, dreams, and careful planning. Expectant parents do not, and should not, devote their time and resources considering what may go wrong during pregnancy and delivery. Unfortunately, however, medical malpractice leading to a birth injury can bring an abrupt halt to the joy and hope of any pregnancy.

If your child sustained birth injuries due to the negligence of a physician or other medical professional, you can and should explore your legal options. Mistakes commonly occur, even when an excellent physician may be involved. Knowing this, most doctors and hospitals are well insured or otherwise able to pay a deserving child injured by their negligent care. Doulas, midwives, nurses and other obstetric specialists are likewise held to standards of care, which they are obligated by law to adhere to.
