Chattanooga Birth Injury Lawyers

Birth Injury Lawyers in Chattanooga, Tennessee

It is overwhelming to learn that your child has suffered a serious birth injury and will never live the normal life that you had anticipated. It is even more devastating to learn that if the doctors had acted with reasonable care or caution, that the birthing injury could have been prevented. While not all injuries are the result of negligence, the attorneys at Stulce & Yantis are here to help you find answers and pursue justice when negligence was involved. Contact our medical malpractice attorneys to discuss your situation at an initial consultation.

When doctors, nurses or hospitals provide substandard care which results in the traumatic injury to a patient, our attorneys hold them accountable for their negligence. We help families in Chattanooga and throughout Tennessee find answers and recover compensation when negligence leads to a serious birth injury, such as:

  • Cerebral palsy (CP)
  • Erb’s palsy (brachial plexus injury)
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Birth brain injury
  • Stillbirth
  • Other birth trauma or injury to the fetus
