Birth Injury Lawyers In San Diego And Riverside, California
Having a child should be one of the most cherished and memorable moments you will experience.

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 every 1,000 suffer birth injuries in the United States each year. There are different reasons that birth injuries may occur. They can be caused by:
- Physician negligence
- Defective medical devices
- Nurse or staff negligence
- 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 suffered 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 that you and your family receive the compensation you deserve.
When a mother gives birth, she and her family should not have to worry about whether 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
- 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. They 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.

We have the knowledge and experience to aggressively pursue your rights and get you the maximum compensation you deserve.
