OB/GYN Malpractice Attorneys Fighting for People Harmed by Malpractice When complications arise during labor or delivery, lives are literally in the balance. The obstetrician has a duty to effectively manage these complications when they happen and take appropriate measures to facilitate the birth of the child and preserve the mother’s health. While some complications ultimately cannot be avoided, in many cases, tragedy could have been averted had the obstetrician acted with the appropriate level of care and skill. When obstetricians commit acts of negligence, infants can be forced to live with brain damage or other profound, life-changing injuries. If your child has a birth injury and you have reason to believe that the negligence of your obstetrician caused or contributed to it, you need to talk to an experienced lawyer.We are the law firm of Dankner Milstein, P.C.
