March 26, 2020   Colorado Medical Malpractice

The birth of a child should be a time of great joy. But when complications occur that result in a physical injury to your newborn, your joy can quickly turn to heartbreak. Many birth injuries are preventable, but when they are caused by improper or negligent medical care, you may have a medical malpractice claim.

Medical malpractice occurs whenever a health care provider’s negligence results in damage or harm to the patient. If you suspect that your newborn was injured before or at the time of birth because a member of your medical team did not act safely and responsibly, call now to arrange for a free consultation with a birth injury lawyer at Burg Simpson.

We will work with you to determine if the doctors and the hospital followed the proper standards of care, or if your child’s injuries were the result of a medical mistake. If medical malpractice occurred, we will fight for you and get you and your baby the compensation you deserve.

Call us at Burg Simpson and let’s find out how we can help.
