Birth Injury

Successful delivery of a healthy child depends on many factors, including the skills used and care taken by doctors and other attendants. An error before, during or immediately after delivery can mean devastating damage to an infant, such as oxygen deprivation that causes brain damage, development disorders or death. In such traumatic circumstances when medical professionals have been negligent in their duty of care to infants and expectant mothers, clients depend on legal counsel from BWMK to secure appropriate financial compensation for birth injuries and a child’s subsequent medical needs for therapy, surgery or care, even if injuries are not apparent for months or years afterward.
