New York City Birth Injury Attorney
New York Birth Injury Attorney
Representing Victims of Pediatric Malpractice and Delivery Room Errors
There are few moments in life as memorable and as important as the birth of your child. It is every parent’s worst nightmare to have something go wrong in the delivery room, especially if that mistake leads to years of pain and suffering for you, your child and the rest of your family. When pediatricians, delivery room doctors and other medical personnel make mistakes, they can lead to serious birth injuries. These injuries may require a lifetime of medical treatment.
A Successful Track Record in Medical Malpractice Cases
At The Perecman Law Firm, our attorneys have decades of experience working with families like yours who have suffered due to medical malpractice and birth injuries. While we know that no amount of money can fully repair what is lost by a birth injury, we can help you get the money you need to pay for medical expenses and continuing care that your child may need. Our lawyers are compassionate, responsive and devoted to a successful outcome for you.
Birth injuries are commonly caused when doctors, nurses and other medical personnel are poorly trained or act negligently. Common sources of birth injury include the failure to monitor vital signs, the failure to perform a Caesarean section, or the failure to properly administer medication. These actions or inaction may result in:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Brain damage
- Shoulder dystocia
- Facial paralysis
- Other types of birth defects or injuries
Our lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts over our many years of practice. We will continue to fight for the safety of patients. By holding hospitals and medical professionals accountable, it may also be possible to limit future birth injuries to other families.
