Neonatal injuries - that is, injuries to newborn children - can cover a wide range. And in many cases, such injuries can affect a child for the rest of his or her life. That's why it's so important for doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to do everything they can to prevent such injuries from occurring in the first place.
Unfortunately, errors occur. And when they do, the consequences can be severe. Just as painfully, many medical professionals refuse to acknowledge that they did anything wrong. That's why you need our legal team on your side, fighting for your rights.
