An Experienced Birth Injury Lawyer
Our firm handles a broad range of medical negligence claims involving birth injuries and improper prenatal care that results in:

- Shoulder dystocia
- Group B strep
- Pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH)
The sad truth is that almost all birth injuries and fetal distress can either be prevented or effectively treated when caught early by nurses and doctors. When nurses and doctors fail to recognize or alert others to fetal distress, it can result in serious injuries and deaths for babies during delivery.
Should They Have Even Been Delivering Your Baby?
While it is the responsibility of doctors and nurses to be on the watch for fetal distress, they may not have been qualified to be there. If it turns out that hospital employees should not have been certified, the hospital may be responsible for what has happened.
