Birth Injuries in Seattle • Bellevue • Redmond, WA
When a child is injured at birth, parents often do not know they can seek damages. They are focused on their baby and adjusting to the idea that he or she may need extraordinary treatment. At our Seattle law firm, our attorneys help people whose baby suffered injury because of negligence and error during pregnancy, labor and delivery. We seek compensation so that they can provide their child with the care he or she needs.
Handling injuries to the baby and the mother
Our lawyers help people through the uncertain time following the birth of a child with an injury. We also work with women who suffered injury during, before and after the birthing process. These clients may have been hurt at the same time as their child or they may have been injured without any collateral injury to the baby.
