Birth Injury Lawyers for Brooklyn, New York & New Jersey
The birth of a baby should be one of the happiest occasions of our lives, a day filled with the promise of a new life and things to come. But when a baby is injured or maimed at birth, it can cause life-long consequences and challenges, not only for your child but for your entire family. The trauma that is experienced is especially devastating when that birth injury was caused by medical error or negligence. Both mother and newborn require correct, attentive care by doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals throughout the labor and delivery process.
Sometimes however, a very serious birth injury may not be immediately apparent. As parents begin to suspect that that there may have been medical malpractice or negligence in the delivery room that resulted in an injury or on-going disability and start asking questions, it can be very difficult to get straight answers from doctors and other hospital personnel.
This is when you should give serious thought to working with an experienced and trusted birth injury lawyer. Our medical negligence lawyers have extensive trial experience and proven results in medical malpractice cases. We take on cases involving:
- Vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC)
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Vacuum and forceps extraction
- Shoulder dystocia
- Other birth injuries
We all count on trained medical professionals to do the right thing at the right time. Sadly, medical professionals do make mistakes. A doctor’s negligent action, or inaction, such as failure to perform a timely C-section, improperly used forceps, or failing to recognize fetal distress during labor can cause serious trauma and birth injuries that can have life-long consequences and require long-term care.
