Birth Injuries

Legal Representation for Birth Injuries Malpractice

A birth injury caused by the negligence of a doctor or nurse can do potentially permanent damage to a new life. Even if the injury is not immediately apparent, as some injuries do not fully manifest until up to six months later, the decisions that medical professionals make during the birth of your child can affect their lives and health for a lifetime.

For a parent, the knowledge that someone has harmed your child, even unintentionally, can be devastating. It can leave you with endless questions, fear for the future and a serious physical, emotional and financial challenge. At Jeff Carter Law Offices, P.C., in Des Moines, we work with families throughout Iowa who have suffered as a result of medical malpractice or doctor negligence. We can put the right resources and the right approach behind your case.

Holding Medical Staff Responsible for Injuries

Medical malpractice cases are extremely time sensitive and if you don't act as soon as you suspect there has been a medical error resulting in a birth injury, you may permanently lose your rights to recover compensation.
