Birth Injury


Childbirth is a tender moment, and doctors and other medical practitioners are charged with the proper care and handling of a mother and child at birth.  When a medical practitioner's actions fall beneath the standard of care during childbirth, the results can be catastrophic.  It is considered medical malpractice to not treat the child or mother with adequate medical care.  Birth injuries are an upsetting and shocking ordeal that no one should have to endure.  Our firm has assisted clients that had been affected by the following types of birth injuries:


    • Erb's Palsy
