Skilled Attorneys For Birth Injury Claims
As many of the Firm’s most serious cases involve newborns and children, birth injury and pediatric claims represent a major focus of the practice of The Bowling Law Firm, A Professional Law Corporation.
A birth injury involves damage that occurs to a fetus or baby during the birthing process.
In addition to injuries occurring during the labor and delivery process, mishaps can also happen during pregnancy or neonatal care. While a birth injury can be caused by uncontrollable factors, there are some instances in which the birth injury is caused by negligent medical care.
Lawyers from The Bowling Law Firm are recognized by their peers to be leaders in trial practice and complex medical litigation. Lawyers from the Firm have been selected by Super Lawyers (reserved for the top 5%), and The American Board of Trial Advocates (requiring extensive jury trial experience). The Firm carries Martindale-Hubbell’s highest AV-Preeminent rating for ability and ethics. The Firm’s lawyers are assisted by a team of four skilled paralegals with extensive experience dissecting medical records, researching medical literature, and assisting with discovery.
When a birth injury is caused by medical malpractice, a lawsuit can be brought against the negligent medical provider. The Bowling Law Firm has extensive experience evaluating and litigating a broad variety of birth injury claims. Additionally, the Firm also frequently handles and takes to trial pediatric medical malpractice cases.
