The birth of a child is an exciting and miraculous time. You spend months preparing for labor and delivery and loving this new life. However, when things go wrong, birth injuries can happen. Whether it's an injury to the child, Mom, or both, birth injuries should never happen. We are incredibly sorry if a birth injury impacts you and your child. If your child's birth injury was due to negligence or a breach of duty of care, you may be able to get compensation. You should not face the future alone; contact a birth injury lawyer at The Law Offices of John M. McCabe today to file your claim.
A Birth injury is an injury that happens to the baby during the birthing process. Birth injuries can cause lifelong pain, suffering, and disability. The birth of a child is a miraculous, beautiful event. However, when something goes wrong, it can turn a family upside down and cause immeasurable pain. When a preventable mistake injures your newborn, the future you envisioned for your child can instantly disappear. You may also quickly become overwhelmed with bills and caretaking duties. In many circumstances, not even the most careful and cutting-edge obstetric treatment will be able to prevent birth injury. Whether it's negligence or carelessness, birth injuries shouldn't happen.
Lawyers who focus on birth injury lawsuits work on a contingency fee basis and represent victims of medical misconduct. When plaintiffs claim that negligent medical care contributed to their child's birth injury, legal action can be taken. We will not charge you a penny at The Law Offices of John M. McCabe unless we win a settlement in or out of court.
