How Is Negligence Proved In Cases Of Birth Injuries?

Negligence is proven through expert testimony of an obstetrician or nurse who testifies that the care provided deviated from what a reasonably careful doctor, nurse or midwife should have done under the circumstances. The presence of an injury or disability by itself does not prove negligence. It is essential that you contact us or as soon as the injury is discovered, so we can take all necessary steps in determining the reason for the injuries sustained. We are dedicated to your case and will devote all our effort to successfully resolving your birth injury claim
