If a doctor fails to meet the standard of care at any point in the process, both the infant and the mother can suffer devastating consequences. At the Law Offices of John E.

Injuries at birth are often caused by lack of oxygen or physical trauma. Consider the following common forms of birth injury:
Birth injuries may result from inadequate medical care. Successfully negotiating or litigating a birth injury claim depends upon identifying medical professional’s decisions and practices during the process that contributed to the injury.
Our attorneys carefully examine the circumstances of your child’s injury, gather evidence from medical records and seek reliable analysis from experts when necessary. While decisions made by attending physicians may be the root cause of the injury, clinical management and procedures on the delivery floor or in the delivery room of a hospital may come into question. Depending on the factors, you may be entitled to seek compensation from the doctor, hospital or both.
Birth injuries are heartbreaking and often preventable. If you decide to take legal action against the negligent parties, guidance from an experienced attorney can be crucial to the outcome of your claim.
