When Medical Malpractice Leads to Birth Injuries

NY Cerebral Palsy Lawyer
Birth injuries can occur when doctors fail to order appropriate tests, fail to properly react to warning signs, misread medical charts and make other errors. An experienced NY birth injury lawyer knows how to investigate claims to determine who was at fault and how negligence contributed to the injury.
Medical negligence can contribute to birth injuries such as:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb's palsy
- Hypoxic brain injuries
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Forceps injuries
- Sphincter injuries and other injuries to the mother
Birth injuries can affect both mother and child. For many babies who are injured, they must contend with a lifetime of physical and mental impairment. No lawsuit can ever compensate for such hardship, but pursuing a birth injury lawsuit can help to ensure your family has the financial resources it needs to pay for medical care, physical therapy, rehabilitation, special living accommodations and other expensive needs.
