Long Island Birth Injury Attorney
Did You or Your Baby Sustain Serious Injuries during Labor?
Bringing a child into the world should be a truly joyous experience. Being able to look into your baby’s eyes for the first time, count all their little fingers and toes, hold them closely to you, these are all moments no new parent will ever forget. As part of the birthing process, parents rely on their doctor, nurse, midwife and the other medical professionals tasked with the care of both mother and child, to do their jobs in a professional and timely manner.
In certain circumstances, complications may arise during childbirth. Some of these may be caused by unpreventable, natural occurrences, and others may be caused by mistakes. We understand that even the most well-intentioned, highly-trained and experience medical professionals can make mistakes, but we also know that these mistakes are capable of causing devastating and life-altering effects. For this reason, we offer the professional resources of a Long Island birth injury attorney at our office to the victims of medical malpractice in the area.
A few of the most common birth injuries are brain injuries, paralysis, cerebral palsy, and brachial plexus injuries. Injuries such as these could be caused by a failure to address birth complications, a misdiagnosis and treatment of an existing medical condition, improperly monitoring both mother and child during labor, incorrect use of medical equipment, lack of proper screenings and other acts of negligence. Each of these is capable of causing permanent damage and thus requiring expensive, life-long care and treatment.
If you or a loved one has sustained birth injuries, you suspect may have been as a result of medical malpractice, we urge you to contact a Long Island personal injury attorney at our firm as soon as possible. Our attorneys will carefully review your case, analyze all medical records, bring in medical experts as needed, advise you of your legal options and help you determine the best course of action to pursue. We do not believe the victims of such injuries should be left having to face the financial burden associated with extensive or life-long medical care. We are here to help you through this difficult time and provide you with the aggressive representation you need.
