Labor and Delivery Errors

The joys of giving birth to a child can turn to grief in an instant if doctor error or incorrect procedure occurs. During birth, the life and health of the child and mother lie in the doctor's hands and ability to rely upon his or her training to safely deliver the baby. Any negligence and deviation from standard medical procedure can result in devastating injuries with lifelong consequences.
