Atlanta Birth

When your child suffers an injury during birth, you are entitled to seek compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit. However, your choice of birth injury attorney should not be made lightly. The firm you choose for representation, along with the skills and experience of your lawyer, will play a significant role in your ability to secure the compensation you are due.


Lourie, Chance, Forlines, Carter & King has been handling complex birth injury cases in Atlanta for several years. Our firm has a long history of successfully litigating birth injury and medical malpractice claims, and we have helped hundreds of families secure the compensation they need to pay for medical care, special schooling, supervision, and the untold amounts of physical and emotional suffering these injuries cause. We are fully dedicated to helping families get justice and are prepared to take cases as far as needed to that end.

Beyond dedication, our firm has the unique benefit of a partner who spent time in the 1990s building cases against birth injury claims. Lance Lourie has witnessed, first hand, how medical experts hired by defense attorneys use placental pathology, genetic testing, neuroradiology, and other methods to disprove claims of negligence. Having firsthand knowledge of these tactics gives us the upper-hand when it comes to litigation. We already know their arguments. We also know how to read medical records, scour reports, and interview witnesses to get the true story.

We work directly with medical professionals, including neo-natal nurses, to thoroughly examine birth records. We take time to interview witnesses. We know how to spot inconsistencies, irregularities, and warning signs. Call us for a complimentary case review to learn how we can help you.

We have no interest in recognition or prestige. We will never exploit your family’s struggles for self-promotion. We will stand by your side, protect you against insurance companies and defense attorneys, and fight tooth and nail for the justice your family deserves.
