When a doctor or other medical provider injures a patient through negligence, it is considered medical malpractice. They failed to observe the basic rules that ensure the safety of their patients. It’s a tremendous responsibility. Unfortunately, not all doctors are as attentive to their duties as they should be.

Medical personnel can’t have a “bad day at work”. When baby is coming, doctors must totally prepare.  When a doctor or nurse fails to do his or her job correctly, and your child suffers as a result, taking legal action is the only reasonable response.

Our firm understands that pursuing a medical malpractice case can’t fix the problem. But it can ensure that you have the money you’ll need for a lifetime of medical bills. We want to help you get the recovery you need for the care of your child.
