Lawsuits involving cerebral palsy, brain damage and birth injuries are complex, thus it is imperative you hire an experienced birth injury and medical malpractice lawyer.

Causes of Birth Injury

When the obstetrical health care system fails, babies born with birth injuries are often the victims. In many situations, the mother’s health is endangered as well as the child’s. Lack of communication among caregivers, lack of understanding of complex medical issues related to pregnancy and birth, and inattentiveness of overworked nurses, technicians, and obstetricians have all been identified as causes of birth injuries.

Experienced birth injury attorneys at Perry & Young Law Firm are tough, aggressive and highly knowledgeable advocates representing babies and their families injured during pregnancy, labor or delivery. Call us at 850-215-7777 for a free consultation.
