Birth Injury Cases

Birth injury lawyer Dr. Michael Archuleta M.D., J.D., M.B.A., has delivered many babies and recovered millions for families suffering from birth injuries in his long career. The Archuleta Law firm understands how difficult it can be when your child is injured due to negligence. If a child is injured at birth due to the negligent care of a doctor or health care provider, then the family may be able to recover compensation through a birth injury lawsuit.

Birth injury lawsuits are complicated. Studies on birth injuries show approximately 6-8 birth injuries per 1000 births in the United States. In addition, the injured child often needs special schooling, therapies, and other forms of care. The birth injury lawyers at Archuleta Law Firm have seen families struggle with these expenses and the emotional hardships families go through due to negligent medical care.

Case reviews are always free, and there is no fee unless there is a recovery in your case.
