The Most Devastating Kind of Injury

Mistakes made by doctors, nurses and technicians in the delivery room can result in catastrophic injuries that can last a lifetime for the baby or mother.

No Attorney Fees Unless We Help You Recover Money

At Shamberg, Johnson & Bergman, we understand how much a birth injury affects your family. Birth injuries are among the most emotional of all medical malpractice injuries because they harm the most vulnerable victims.

Our trial attorneys and staff are compassionate about your losses and will be by your side throughout the process. We go beyond the legal issues, as we help you seek the medical, social and financial support services you need.

We represent families affected by birth injuries to mother and baby, including:

Winning a Medical Negligence Case

We often receive calls from clients whose doctors made a general mistake by misdiagnosing a condition or prescribing the wrong medication. Medical negligence cases, such as birth injuries, have gotten very difficult to prove and win over the past several years.

If you have a birth injury case in which you can show actual medical and financial damages, we can help you fight to protect your rights. We have the professional and technical resources of independent experts to help us prepare the strongest case possible for a settlement or jury award.
