The birth of a child is an exciting time for parents and families alike, but experiencing a birth injury can quickly turn that excitement into trauma.

The female birth injury attorneys of Zevan Davidson Roman are prepared to fight for your child as if they were our own. We want the best for your family and we will do everything in our power to improve your situation.
About Birth Injury Medical Malpractice
Many common birth injuries are caused by either negligence or carelessness of healthcare professionals. Common birth injury medical errors include:
• Failure to anticipate birth complications
• Failure to respond to an irregular fetal heartbeat
• Failure to realize that the umbilical cord is wrapped around the baby’s neck
• Failure to provide proper prenatal care
• Failure to perform proper delivery procedures
