Despite medical advancements in the birth process, doctor mistakes, hospital staff negligence, and other forms of negligent medical management still cause most of the infant head injuries that result in permanent brain damage to babies. As an experienced Indiana birth injury law firm, Wagner Reese understands that many tragic infant brain injury cases are preventable.
Our skilled infant brain injury lawyers in Indianapolis conduct a thorough investigation into the actions and decisions of all hospital staff involved before, during, and after a birth-related brain injury. We carefully examine hospital records, interview witnesses, and work with neurological experts and other medical specialists to determine the cause and extent of infant brain damage.
Contact us at (888) 204-8440 to discuss your birth injury claim. We handled cases across Indiana and Illinois.
What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical negligence refers to the failure of a physician, medical professional, hospital, or other medical service provider to meet the standards of conduct relating to their profession. The standards of conduct are based on what a medical professional with requisite training and skills would ordinarily be expected to do.
For example, a doctor who prescribes the wrong medication may be negligent because the knowledge needed to give the correct prescription is considered to be an expected part of the profession or specialty.
