New York City Birth Injury Attorney

Premature Baby Bronx Brooklyn

Experienced NY Birth Injury Lawyer 

Unfortunately, many serious health problems are caused by birth injuries and medical malpractice during labor or childbirth. Injuries may include Cerebral Palsy, broken bones, Erb's Palsy or brain damage.  Many birth injuries are avoidable if the the physician anticipates and recognizes certain risk factors. Risk factors may include the following :

  • Excessive traction during delivery;
  • Complications from instrumental deliveries, such as forceps or vacuum;
  • Infants who weigh more than 9 pounds, 15 ounces
  • Vaginal breech delivery

Nerve damage in the form of brachial plexus injury occurs most commonly in large babies. Injuries can include:

  • Fractured clavicle
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Erb's palsy

Erb's palsy is most common and is associated with lack of shoulder movement. 

Birth Injury Cases Require Review of the Medical Records of Both the Mother and Baby

Occasionally doctors and hospitals will not respond to requests for records, even though a patient is entitled to a copy of his file.  In such instances, it may be necessary to start an action in court to force the doctor or hospital to turn over the records.  Why try to do this by yourself when you can have an experienced New York medical malpractice attorney handle your case?

Birth Injury Cases are Subject to Strict Time Limitations

New York State Law requires a patient to obtain a doctor's opinion that medical malpractice occurred before any medical malpractice lawsuit may be filed in the Courts of New York State, so if you believe you or a family member has been injured by medical negligence, you should contact a New York medical malpractice attorney immediately.  Why try to do this on your own?
