Jackson Mississippi Birth Injury Attorneys
Birth injury lawsuits and actions arise when babies/infants are injured during birth or before birth by the negligent or intentional acts of a healthcare provider, to include doctors, nurses, hospital staff, or other personnel. This is when you need professional and experienced Jackson Mississippi Birth Injury Attorneys.
When these actions, or inaction, cause an injury to a baby, they are said to be a tort and the individual and the family can seek legal recourse.
When a company, entity, business, or individual is determined to be legally responsible for their negligent acts, they are liable for the injury, and may be made to pay the injured person damages. These damages attempt to put an injured person back in the position he or she was in before being injured.
