San Jose Birth Injury Lawyer
Cerebral Palsy and Erb's Palsy Birth Injury Errors
Most medical providers meet the standards we expect in the delivery of a child. Despite the importance of doing so, actions and omissions by health care professionals sometimes lead to injury or death for both mother and child. It is wrong that their lives are marred by injury or extinguished entirely because providers could not meet a standard level of care.
It may be small consolation, but Janoff Law will fight to obtain compensation and ensure that such mistakes do not recur. Contact us today to work with a legal team committed to helping you pursue justice and compensation.
