Jacksonville Obstetric Negligence Lawyer

Experienced Obstetric Negligence Attorneys in Jacksonville, FL

Obstetrics is the branch of medicine that deals with childbirth, including the care of pregnant women before, during, and after labor and delivery. This is one of the most rewarding medical specialties, but it is also challenging and is not without certain risks. All health care professionals in obstetrics have an obligation to provide standard care. They must take reasonable precautions to ensure mother and baby are properly cared for, including the proper diagnosis and treatment of pregnancy-related medical conditions, standard care during labor and delivery, and appropriate post-delivery care. If complications arise, they must address these quickly and appropriately.

Any deviations from standard, reasonable care may be considered obstetric negligence and may provide grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit against the at-fault provider or facility. At Spohrer Dodd Trial Attorneys, we handle a complete range of obstetric negligence cases for clients in Florida and across the country. We have witnessed the tragedy that can result from carelessness or malpractice in obstetrics and are prepared to demand justice for injured children, mothers and their families.
