Birth Injury Advocating For Your Child-It's What We Do

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
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Punitive damages in certain situations

To find out more about how you can seek justice for your child, call our Jackson birth injury lawyers at (601) 265-6869 or using our online contact form. We’re here for you.
