Beaumont Birth Injury Lawyers

Handling Birth Defect Cases for Families in Southeast Texas

A birth defect can alter the entire future of a newborn. Serious birth injuries can be caused by complications, poor medical handling, or an illness brought on by the negligence of a doctor or hospital staff. Children born with defects may be unable to care for themselves, suffer physical and mental handicaps, or emotional trauma that keeps them out of the workforce as adults while requiring ongoing medical care.

No child or parent should be subject to the pain and suffering of a birth defect that could have been prevented. When these tragic events happen, Dugas Law Firm stands ready to pursue justice with vigor and determination. We aim to properly target negligent parties and their insurers to fight for compensation.

If your child has suffered a birth defect due to the negligence or wrongdoing of their medical team, our Beaumont medical malpractice attorneys have the experience and commitment to help. Call us at (409) 226-0990. We offer a free initial consultation.
