Helping Families Who Have Suffered Birth Injuries
A birth injury is an indescribable event for a family that was looking forward to a new and beautiful stage of their life. While some birth injuries are due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, some are the direct result of negligence on the part of doctors and other medical professionals.
If you or someone close to you has suffered a birth injury and you think malpractice may be to blame, the Sheindlin Law Firm, is here to help you explore your legal options. I have more than 25 years of experience as a lawyer in New York City and throughout surrounding areas.
Finding The Causes Of Birth Injuries
I thoroughly investigate birth injury claims to uncover evidence of negligence on the part of obstetricians, nurses, anesthesiologists and other delivery room personnel, as well as the hospital itself. Some of the common causes of birth injuries include:
- Hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain that can lead to cerebral palsy)
- Failure to monitor
- Forceps errors
- Untreated infections
- Failure to diagnose pre-eclampsia
When infants are injured during birth, they may face a lifetime of hardships, including developmental disabilities and costly ongoing treatment. Mothers are also vulnerable to suffering injuries and even wrongful death due to negligence.
As an experienced medical malpractice attorney, I know how to properly value birth injury claims. I work tirelessly to help my clients obtain full compensation for the hardships they suffer today and ones they will face in the future.
