Medical negligence occurring during pregnancy, labor and delivery, and in the neonatal time frame, can result in severe injuries to fetuses and infants, including severe permanent neurological injuries or death. The group focuses on current medical and legal information to assist members in investigating and pursuing birth trauma litigation claims.
The Birth Trauma Litigation Group was formed in 1989.
The group holds meetings and educational programs at AAJ conventions. Group members network throughout the year, sharing resources such as information regarding expert witness testimony and medical literature reviews. The group has published newsletters and has a list server.
The Group meets at AAJ Annual and Winter conventions.
