Jackson Birth Injury Attorneys
Fighting for a Better Future for Your Child
When a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional involved in the care of a pregnant mother or the delivery of a child fail to provide proper care, this can have serious consequences. It can turn what should have been a joyous occasion into a traumatic experience for baby and mother alike.
If your son or daughter suffered a preventable birth injury as the result of misconduct on the part of any medical professional or facility involved in pregnancy, labor, or delivery, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. This would provide the opportunity to pursue financial compensation for your child’s care, now and into the future.
This can include:
- Past, present, and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of future earnings
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Punitive damages in certain situations
