Children are the most important aspect of the lives of most parents. When a son or daughter suffers serious injuries, it is a tragic situation. When these injuries are the direct result of a medical professional's negligent actions, the situation is inexcusable.

Our attorneys represent clients in birth injury claims involving:

- Erb's palsy: Erb's palsy is a type of shoulder and arm paralysis often caused by the child being pulled too aggressively from the mother, or due to head and neck strain during birth.
- Severe brain damage: Often caused by lack of oxygen or nutrients to the child due to umbilical cord stress during birth, severe brain damage and traumatic brain injury are all too common during birth.
- Wrongful death: Sadly, due to negligence of doctors, nurses and other medical staff, some babies do not survive the birthing process.
