Learn How Our Portland Birth Injury Attorney Can Help
The last thing that any parent should be worried about after the birth
of their new child is preventable injuries caused by the actions of a

While many births occur without a problem, when the doctor, nurse, or
other medical professional caring for you during this time injures you
or your infant, you may be able to hold them liable for medical malpractice.
Are you wondering if you may have a case for the suffering endured by you
or your child during the birth process? Our experienced
Portland birth injury lawyer can review the details of your case in a
free initial case evaluation and let you know what options are available to you.
Do I have a medical malpractice case?
Some babies that have suffered from a delivery problem will recover with
some extra medical attention while others suffer from extreme injury the
remainder of their lives. Unfortunately, many problems during the labor
and delivery process occur through failing to properly monitor the mother
and the infant throughout the process. Keeping a careful eye on the needs
of you and your baby can prevent needless injuries, and the doctors and
nurses that failed to perform this basic level of care can be brought
up on medical malpractice charges.
