Birth Injury Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Birth trauma cases involve complex issues of medical science and law.  Your child should be represented by a law firm that deals with these issues every day, one with the experience and the resources to deliver the result your family deserves.  

The U.S. has one of the highest standards for obstetrical care in the world, yet labor and delivery remain amongst the most medically dangerous times for a woman. Even seemingly small missteps can threaten the lives of both mother and baby. When physicians fail to meet the standard of care, and babies or mothers are injured as a result, our Houston birth injury attorneys at Hampton & King are prepared to fight for justice.

We have handled virtually every possible birth injury scenario so we have the experience to recognize medical errors and their root causes, even when they are not evident in the medical records.   Our resources include a full-time physician who works hand-in-hand with our lawyers and our medical experts to ensure that our cases are supported by the most up-to-date medical evidence.  

We have a proven track record and have been recognized by our peers as leaders in birth injury litigation.
