Over the past 100 years, the safety of childbirth has increased enormously. The mortality rates for both children and mothers have fallen as medical innovations and more knowledge about safe birth practices has grown.
However, medical mistakes can and do still occur during labor and delivery. As a result, far too many children and mothers suffer physical injuries that were entirely preventable. In fact, mortality rates have also begun to creep up, leading to unnecessary deaths. At Delventhal Law Office, we represent mothers and children when they are injured by medical malpractice.
