Complications during birth do occur, but when they affect the intelligence, neurological system, or ability of your baby to live a normal life, then you need a top personal injury law firm with the experience to investigate it.
Our New York law firm investigates your birth injury case by ordering medical records and reviewing them with one of our trusted medical doctors specializing in OB/GYN. Many of these doctors even hold teaching positions in medical schools.
If your child suffers from Cerebral Palsy or Erb's Plexus Palsy, know that these are two of the major types of birth injuries.
Cerebral palsy is a condition in which there was a reduction in oxygen to an infant's brain at any time prior to birth. If your child suffers from cerebral palsy, we can investigate the birth records of your child to see if medical error occurred.
Erb's palsy occurs during the delivery of a baby when excessive force is used.This causes trauma to the baby's body. In rare instances, the baby's shoulder during delivery cannot pass through the mother's pelvic bone and the doctor uses excessive force to get the baby out. Rather than exploring other options, such as a Cesarean section or changing the baby's position during delivery, the obstetrician commits a lifelong error at that time.
The settlement value or jury verdict award on any birth injury case is high because of the cost of the future care and medical treatment of the child for his entire life expectancy.
