Chilliwack Birth Injury Lawyer

Serious and life-altering birth injuries can occur at any point during the pregnancy, the delivery or in the first minutes of newborn care. Trauma to a baby can be caused by illness, premature delivery, delayed delivery, prolonged labour, or– in the most tragic of cases– from negligent mistakes on the part of a healthcare provider.  The Preszler team of Chilliwack personal injury lawyers is here to help.

 Birth injury lawyers serving Chilliwack

Over the last ten years, the Canadian Medical Protective Association has paid out tens of millions of dollars to families for medical malpractice that left dozens of children with disabling birth injuries. Obstetricians, nurses, doctors, midwives and delivery room staff are trained in all aspects of the birthing process and obstetric care, yet warning signs go unheeded and careless errors are still made. When negligence occurs and fetal trauma results, families have the right to seek justice.

If you suspect that your child suffered irreparable harm because of medical negligence, you need an experienced birth injury law firm to prove your case. Chilliwack personal injury lawyers understand that parents may be reluctant to pursue litigation, especially in cases where a trusting doctor-patient relationship has been established. But when a lack of situational awareness or blatant mistakes lead to your child’s disability, and pain and suffering, legal action is one of the most effective tools for holding negligent parties accountable.
