Effective Legal Representation in Florida Birth Injury Lawsuits

There are risks that come with pregnancy and childbirth. With good prenatal care and attentive care in the delivery room, many of these risks can be managed effectively. But even with the best possible care, no one can control or anticipate every possible variable. All of which is to say that doctors, nurses and other health care providers are not to blame for every birth-related tragedy. We investigate birth injuries to determine whether such tragedies were avoidable.

How can you know if what happened was unavoidable or if it was the result of negligent medical care? Contact The McLeod Firm in St. Augustine, Florida, for experienced, effective attorneys who can help you answer questions about how and why your child’s birth injury happened.

  • Spinal cord damage
  • Uterine ruptures
