Steps in the Investigation of a Birth Injury Case
The investigation and review of a potential birth injury lawsuit requires medical malpractice lawyers with the experience to identify medical mistakes and the resources to provide the best experts and litigators across the country.
Out of the total number of births each year, only a small percentage involve a medical mistake that leads to a birth injury. However, every year thousands of children are diagnosed with cerebral palsy, erb’s palsy, or other forms of a birth injury which are directly caused by a doctor’s error or medical mistake.
If an injury at birth could have been prevented with the exercise of reasonable care, then the child would not be forced to face a lifetime of disability. In addition, the family would not face the substantial expenses associated with providing the best treatment available for their child. Request a free consultation and claim evaluation.
