Injury to Infants During Delivery and Doctor Negligence
After taking the utmost care throughout the prenatal period of your pregnancy, it can be devastating when your infant is injured because of negligent labor and delivery. Injuries can range from shoulder dystocia to brain injury to permanent disability, even death to a newborn or mother. At Hal Waldman and Associates, we are experienced in representing clients and their families who have been affected by doctor negligence and medical malpractice.
