Pursuing Justice On Behalf Of Injured Mothers
If you or your loved one has sustained a life-changing obstetric (childbirth) injury, we understand that pursuing legal action is about justice and finding answers as to what went wrong. The only way to create systemic change in the health care industry is by holding negligent doctors, hospitals, nurses and other health care providers accountable for their actions. Our law firm has helped numerous women who have been seriously injured due to preventable mistakes of health care professionals. For example, we represented a 25-year-old woman whose uterus ruptured during labor due to substandard care from her doctor. She will never be able to have children. We also represented a 35-year-old woman who lost her baby and her uterus after she was given too much Pitocin during labor.
Types Of Injuries During Childbirth
There are many things that can go wrong during childbirth. We will carefully review medical records to determine whether negligence or an error resulted in injuries, including:
- Bladder and other organ nicks
- C-section surgical errors
- Lack of oxygen leading to brain damage
