Legal Resources

While the area of legal issues is not our forte we strive to provide resources as they are brought to our attention. These two groups have put themselves out there as legal teams that care about birth injuries and their impacts on families. As we care deeply about prenatal and perinatal trauma and its impact on kiddos we feel that a balanced set of resources would not be complete without providing you some kind of starting point for dealing with these things from a legal standpoint.  (Disclaimer: Hollis Consulting LLC has no partnerships with these folks nor do we receive any monetary compensation from them.)

 

Birth injuries are instances of physical harm during childbirth directly caused by medical errors. There are many types of birth injuries, ranging from mild to severe. Birth injuries may cause irreversible damage there are groups that can provide you with legal resources to help address these kind of injuries from a legal standpoint.
