When a doctor or nurse does not perform their duties safely, they put their patients at serious risk of harm. Medical malpractice is even worse when it affects a newborn who was welcomed into this world only moments before, or sometimes after, the injury took place. The consequences of just a second of negligence can be severe, and sometimes last a lifetime.

More often than not, the original offer is enough to cover costs related to the birth but does not consider all the necessary future rehabilitation, pain and suffering damages, and lost earning potential of your child.
Additional treatments that could extend well into your child’s life include:
