Discovering that your medical care provider was negligent and caused your newborn injury can be devastating. Birth injuries can often lead to lifelong complications for your child. Some of the most damaging birth injuries include cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy. Our firm has extensive experience with both types of cases.

We make it our job to represent injury victims to the best of our ability—helping them hold the responsible party accountable for what happened, and making sure they get as much compensation as possible for their injuries.
If you or someone you care for has been injured due to medical malpractice, know that you are not alone. We are here to listen to your story and help you pursue a medical malpractice case.
Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?
When we examine a potential case, there are several things that we look for. These include:
When it comes to medical malpractice, there needs to be a clear indication of negligence. In medical malpractice claims, we look to see if the doctor or other care provider failed to meet the “standard of care.” The standard of care is the standard that a medical care provider is expected to meet for every patient. For instance, if a doctor failed to ask you about allergies before administering treatment—something he or she does for every patient—and you were injured as a result, the doctor failed to meet the standard of care.
The medical care provider’s negligence needs to have caused you an injury for you to have a potential case. Because medical malpractice cases are difficult and expensive to pursue, the injury suffered typically needs to be significant to justify a case. Birth injuries, surgical errors, medication errors, and other serious injuries are usually the basis for medical malpractice cases.
