Protecting Families in Birth Injury Cases
While birth is often filled with joy and excitement, new parents are often overwhelmed. The situation can become even more complicated and emotional if the child, or the mother, suffered an injury before, during, or immediately after the labor and delivery process. Hospitals, clinics, and insurance malpractice insurance companies must be held responsible for any negligence that contributed to any harm.
At Lincoln Trial Lawyers, our birth injury attorneys take cases very seriously. We approach these types of cases with the compassion and sensitivity that the parents and children need, but are aggressive in the action that we take against the hospital or insurance company. The injuries that a child can sustain may be lasting and require a lifetime of additional medical care. We are determined to get you compensation for the losses your family has suffered.
