Attorneys For Birth Injuries In New Mexico

Can there be anything more devastating to a family than having their baby die, get injured or become paralyzed during the birth process, or having the mother die because of complications while giving birth?

In our modern hospitals and delivery rooms, birth injuries to the baby and mother have been greatly reduced, but they have not been completely eliminated. Every year, thousands of babies across the United States are born with paralysis, dystocia or brain injuries leading to cerebral or Erb's palsy, or they die because of complications in the womb or birth canal. Thousands of mothers are seriously injured or die when complications aren't immediately diagnosed and remedied in time.
