Gainesville Birth Injury Lawyers
Representing Victims in Pedestrian Accident Claims
What should be among the happiest moments in your life can quickly turn into a tragedy when your baby is injured due to medical malpractice on the part of a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other healthcare provider. Improper handling of the birth by a medical professional can cause injuries or illnesses that can lead to permanent disability or even death. Difficulties in diagnosing such injuries may lead many parents to believe their child’s injury was genetic in origin, when the fact is that many such birth defects could have been prevented.
