San Diego Birth Injury Attorneys
Birth Injury Lawyers in San Diego and Riverside, CA
Having a child should be one of the most cherished and memorable experiences you will go through. You have gone through your pregnancy and built a rapport with your physician, nurses, and toured the facility where you will give birth. When your baby is born and you are told something went wrong, your world can come crashing down around you. A mother should not have to worry about if their child suffered or continues to suffer from a birth injury or what she will do if she was injured while giving birth.

Our San Diego birth injury attorneys will work to fight on your behalf to get you compensation for your child who suffered a birth injury and yourself if you were injured while giving birth.
Birth Injuries in Southern California
Birth injuries are more common than people know. Six to eight infants out of 1,000 suffer a birth injury in the United States each year. There are different reasons a birth injury may occur. Birth injuries can be caused by:
- Physician negligence;
- Defective medical devices;
- Nurse or staff negligence; or
- Medical malpractice.
Medical staff or the product manufacturer should be held responsible if they are the reason your child suffers a birth injury or you suffer an injury during the birthing process. We believe in finding out the reason for the birth injury, whether medical staff, defective products, or negligence by the attending staff caused it, and ensuring the family receives the compensation they deserve.
When a mother gives birth she and her family should not have to worry if her infant will suffer from a birth injury, such as:
- Erb’s Palsy;
- Cerebral Palsy;
- Brain Injuries;
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Shoulder Dystocia;
- Delay in Diagnosis of Fetal Distress; or
- Labor and Delivery Problems.
Our firm handles different types of injury cases. Our San Diego birth injury attorneys will carefully research the birth injury, the cause of the injury, and who is responsible for it. Our attorneys will then devise the strongest case on your behalf. You deserve the best advocates to fight for your rights in negligence, medical malpractice, or defective product birth injury cases. Our attorneys will stand up for you to get you the best compensation you deserve.
