The Role of Medical Experts

They are more likely to occur when certain factors come into play, and our trusted doctors and other medical experts are unparalleled in detecting negligence. Whether providing written reports for a claim or providing clear, expert testimony in court, our medical experts have helped our clients achieve positive outcomes in cases involving:

  • A failure to identify, monitor, or act on fetal distress

A birth injury means not only hospital bills but many other expenses that will come with your role as a caregiver and in securing the well-being and quality of life for your child.
