Carrying a child to term and giving birth is a unique experience that is both unfamiliar and frightening. This experience in itself can be overwhelming and terrifying, let alone dealing with your newborn suffering an injury because of a negligent nurse or doctor. Unfortunately, thousands of parents must deal with their child getting injured from medical malpractice, each and every year. Birth injuries come in all shapes and levels of seriousness, from minor injuries to those leading to lasting damage that you and your child will have to deal with for a lifetime. Additionally, some birth injuries may even be life threatening for both mother and child. If you are a victim of medical malpractice that has led to a birth injury, it is important for you to contact a personal injury lawyer at Atkins & Markoff as soon as possible. Whether you or your newborn child has sustained an injury during pregnancy or the birthing process, we will work hard to ensure you receive compensation and justice from the negligence of the responsible party.

Both pregnancy and giving birth requires attention of adequate doctors and nurses, which is why we believe you should receive compensation if you or your child has suffered an injury at the hands of these trusted professionals. The most common types of injuries that the mother may sustain during pregnancy or birth include the administration of dangerous drugs, preeclampsia, vacuum injuries, vaginal tears, or errors during a C-section.
