The birth of a child is often a joyful event. There are, however, significant risks throughout the process. When medical professionals use an appropriate standard of care, those risks can be inconsequential. When doctors or nurses act carelessly, though, the outcome can be devastating. If your child suffered injuries in the birthing process because of the negligent or wrongful act of a medical caregiver, you want an experienced lawyer to help you get the compensation you need to care for your child. We can help.

At the office of Michael J. Hood, LLC, we bring more than 31 years of experience to people with potential personal injury claims based on a birth-related injury. We take a unique approach with every case, listening carefully to learn the facts and circumstances of your child’s injury. We will work closely with you throughout the legal process, keeping you fully informed of all developments, as well as your options, so that you can make good decisions that protect your future.

All of our clients receive a free initial consultation. To set up an appointment, contact us online or call us at (302) 777-1000.
