Birth Injuries, Doctors’ Negligence and Your Rights in Pennsylvania

More Than 70 Years of Combined Personal Injury Legal Help in Philadelphia and Allentown

Do you know or suspect your child was injured during his or her birth? You may believe that birth is an event in which anything can potentially go wrong and that, when it does, it must be accepted as an accident or even as an act of God.

Most often, though, birth injuries are preventable and can be traced, through thorough investigation, to negligence on the part of a doctor or nurse. Why? Because millions of births occur every year. And because of this, numerous processes and procedures are in place to address and remedy almost any problem. When a birth injury occurs, it is almost always because a medical care provider failed to follow a procedure long in place to prevent injuries from occurring.
