Compassionate Phoenix Birth Trauma Lawyers

Birth injury attorney in Phoenix holding negligent doctors responsible

The birth of your child should be cause for celebration. After nine months of waiting for your newborn, holding a healthy baby in your arms is the reward. But for many parents, this time of joy is ruined by medical negligence.

The injury lawyers in Phoenix at Begam & Marks, P.A. are dedicated to helping injured children and parents hold negligent doctors responsible and obtaining the compensation you need.

Medical malpractice and birth injuries

All medical professionals, including doctors, surgeons, nurses and hospitals, have a duty to provide patients with the standard of care that is generally accepted in the medical community. When an act or omission by a healthcare provider falls below the standard of care and causes injury or death to the mother or baby, a Phoenix birth injury lawyer may be able to help you bring a claim for medical malpractice. In many cases, birth injuries are preventable and the doctor’s failure to prevent the injury is negligence.

Causes of birth injuries

Our Phoenix birth trauma lawyers assist parents in claims involving birth injuries to mothers as well as children. There are many types of medical errors that may occur during pregnancy due to the negligence of obstetricians, gynecologists, nurses, hospitals and other medical professionals:
