When obstetricians make mistakes, babies can suffer a lifetime of problems like cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, and developmental delays. In the worst cases, these mistakes can be fatal.
You may have a claim for monetary damages if the actions, decisions or inaction of health care professionals resulted in serious injury or death during pregnancy, labor, or delivery. The Becker Law Firm represents clients in birth injury and death cases statewide and beyond.
