New York Birth Injury Lawyers
These cases involve infant birth defects that were caused by the careless administration of medication to a pregnant mother, carelessness in the detection of problems during pregnancy, or any other problem affecting an otherwise healthy pregnancy and birth.
Our firm believes that childbirth is one of life’s miracles and when the process goes painfully wrong because of medical negligence or error, you should be compensated.

We can even come to you at your home, hospital or on the job. If you don’t have a doctor to treat you for your injury, we may well be able to find doctors that can treat you without you paying them until the end of the case, and we can keep insurance adjusters from calling you.
Risks during Birth
When caring for a pregnant mother and her unborn child, doctors and medical staff have a responsibility to monitor their health closely so they may prevent any potentially life threatening or life-altering injuries.
In one case, we received a $43,940,000 verdict when a hospital did not diagnose fetal distress in a pregnant woman appropriately and it led to permanent brain damage and cerebral palsy in the baby. In another case, a newborn lost motion to its arm during birth because the doctor applied incorrect force on the baby’s head and the family received a settlement of $1,400,000.
We understand there is very little solace a court case can bring if your child was injured, but we will do everything we can to help you get monetary compensation to cover any long-term effects and their costs. These can be very expensive and will often involve a team of professionals who specialize in all forms of physical, cognitive, and psychosocial rehabilitation. Most families don’t have the means to provide this level of care for their children. Let us help you offer your child a chance at a higher quality of life.
