Pursuing Compensation For Birth Injuries

When a delivery room doctor or nurse makes a mistake due to carelessness, negligence or incompetence, serious injuries and complications can affect the infant, the mother and the rest of the family for many years into the future. Birth injuries can also result in wrongful death and the resulting pain can be difficult for families to handle. Holding doctors accountable for birth injuries is important for the process of closure and recovery.
