Birth Injury Attorneys

Serving San Antonio, Texas

Childbirth should be full of joy and excitement. But sometimes things don’t go as planned and what should have been a joyous occasion becomes one filled with sadness and concern for both mother and child. A birth injury is an injury a baby suffers during labor or delivery. This of course in unexpected and can come as quite a shock, and can leave the child disabled for life and the family facing a lifetime of expensive medical care.

It is therefore extremely important to understand what went wrong and whether it could have been avoided. A birth injury can be caused by negligence on the part of medical professionals before during or after delivery. In these cases, the parents of an injured child may have the right to demand compensation for the cost of past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, as well as, therapy, home modifications, special vehicles or equipment, and other items needed to provide for their injured child.
