We began working on medical malpractice cases involving birth trauma back in the late 1990s. Over the years, cases involving birth trauma and meconium aspiration have become a large part of our practice. As a result, we are well aware of the devastating effects that a traumatic birth and botched deliveries can have on children. We also understand importance of early intervention and the lifelong therapeutic, educational, and vocational needs of children who have suffered various types of birth trauma, including meconium aspiration syndrome.
We have seen the emotional strain that this type of medical negligence causes the parents of these children, and even the effects it can have on the siblings of the child who is injured. One thing that is a common and recurring theme of all parents is that they somehow start to blame themselves for what happened. While this reaction is very human, the self-blame is almost always misplaced.
If you feel there may have been malpractice that resulted in birth trauma, you should consult with one of our attorneys as soon as possible. We offer free consultations, and you can either write to us by clicking on the Free Case Evaluation window in the bottom of your screen, or by calling us at (800) 215-1003.
