Helping Families Hold Medical Professionals Accountable for Birth Injuries

Medical negligence during prenatal care or childbirth can have catastrophic consequences for the newborn and the whole family. The most serious injuries, such as cerebral palsy, can generate a lifetime of needs and expenses for in-home assistance, adaptive technology and future medical treatment.

Our attorneys have successfully represented families from all over the United States in birth injury litigation, especially brachial plexus injury claims. Our goal is to help parents recover the financial compensation necessary to meet the increased financial demands of raising a severely injured or disabled child and to give the child future financial security to make up for his or her disadvantages in pursuing a freely chosen career.
