Labor is a natural process, but it places both the mother and child in a great deal of stress that can create a dangerous risk of severe, long-term injury or even death. The doctors and nurses who attend a labor must always act with extreme care and never make a mistake. A single act of negligence can have serious consequences, even if the delivery is ultimately considered a success.

Some common issues that can arise during the course of labor and delivery due to the negligence or lack of skill of the medical staff include:
Success in your claim depends on proving that medical negligence is at fault for the injury. We will review the circumstances of the incident to determine whether you have grounds for a lawsuit. It is advisable to take action early after the injury, to prevent the statute of limitations from costing you this opportunity. We will pursue a settlement to compensate you for every aspect of the injury, including the medical bills for treatment and ongoing care, lost income and the pain and suffering you and your child may have experienced.
Contact an Atlanta birth injury attorney if you or your child was harmed by any type of problem in labor or delivery which could have been prevented.
