Helping You Recover Compensation For Birth Injuries
The birth of a child is one of the most joyous events in a parent's life. However, when doctors fail to recognize dangerous conditions and babies are injured, the birth and delivery process can quickly turn into a real-life nightmare.
If your child sustained a birth injury or birth defect caused by complications during labor and delivery, or due to improper prenatal medical care, they are entitled to compensation.
At The Reyna Law Firm, P.C., we help parents throughout the Tucson area bring medical malpractice claims on behalf of their children, to recover compensation for the lifelong pain and suffering and medical costs caused by their child's birth injury.
Compensation may also include compensation for the child's loss of future earning capacity. In addition, parents can bring their own claims for emotional distress caused by their child's birth injury or birth defect.
We rely on doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to ensure our babies are kept safe before and during birth. When doctors fail to identify and respond to medical complications during delivery, or fail to provide proper prenatal care, babies can sustain serious, life-altering and even fatal injuries.
At The Reyna Law Firm, P.C., attorney Ron Reyna helps parents hold doctors in southern Arizona liable for the physical, mental and emotional pain and suffering caused by birth injuries and birth defects.
Birth injuries may be caused by a doctor's improper use of forceps and vacuums, failure to order necessary C-sections or failure to properly monitor the baby's overall health, or when babies are deprived of oxygen during the birth process.
Birth injuries and birth defects can also result from a doctor, physician or other medical professional's failure to provide proper prenatal care. Many prescription drugs, if taken during pregnancy, can cause birth defects. A doctor's or pharmacists' failure to warn expectant mothers against these risks may cause harm to unborn children.
