Pursuing Justice For Victims Of Birth Injuries
When a delivery room doctor or nurse makes a mistake because of carelessness, negligence or incompetence, serious injuries and complications can affect the infant, the mother and the rest of the family for many years. Birth injuries can also result in wrongful death, and the resulting pain can be difficult for families to handle. Holding doctors accountable for birth injuries is important for the process of closure and recovery.
At The Gori Law Firm, our lawyers have 40 years of experience dealing with personal injury and medical malpractice claims, including those stemming from birth injuries.
