Causation: If the practitioner was negligent and the mother or baby suffered a birth injury, the practitioner can be liable for the resulting damages.
Damages: The mother or baby suffered financial, physical, and emotional damages.
To support your case, we will assemble evidence and documentation including:

Once we establish fault and liability, we will fight to recover the maximum value of your damages for you.
