Why Birth Injuries Deserve Representation
While a vast number of possible problems can occur during pregnancy and during a birth, pregnancies and births occur constantly. In other words, doctors should be able to anticipate most pregnancy- and birth-related problems and prevent them whenever possible.
Unfortunately, birth injuries and failures to diagnose fetal issues occur regularly, devastating families and lives. When a doctor fails to properly care for mothers, fetuses and infants, doctors can be held legally liable, and victims of negligence can often recover financial damages.
