The experience of bringing life into the world is a sacred one. Child birth is coveted; families devote years to the moment an expected baby is born. However, even the most precious occasions don’t always go according to plan.

In many cases, birth injury to the mother or child is imminent and unavoidable even under the highest level of medical care. Yet, in some tragic events, birth related injuries result from negligence on the part of health care professionals. These incidents can be particularly devastating. Injuries occurring at birth can have permanent implications for newborn babies, and subsequently their families. Negligence during childbirth can also endanger the life of the mother. Such complications have uniquely far-reaching consequences that often jeopardize the livelihoods of the families they effect.

Kar will conduct a thorough assessment of the circumstances surrounding the incident, and evaluate the severity of harm induced.
