Providing Newborns, Mothers, And Families A Voice Against Negligence-based Birth Injuries
Every year New York City hospitals are held liable for hundreds of medical malpractice settlements, with total payouts of more than $130M to victims and the families they have harmed.
When a baby is born with unexpected brain damage or physical defects, it is a shocking blow to the parents. Birth injuries alter the course of the child’s life and create significant heartache and hardships for the family. The tragedy is compounded when the harm is traced to the negligence of physicians or nurses.

Birth-related Medical Malpractice In Labor And Delivery Cases
We advocate passionately and professionally in every legal matter, and we are prepared to invest the full energy and resources of our firm to hold medical providers accountable. We work closely with medical experts who can review the records and attest that the professional standard of care was breached.
We offer a free case evaluation regarding the following types of birth injuries:
- Cerebral Palsy — Brain damage affecting motor skills and cognitive function, resulting from oxygen deprivation during childbirth
- Erb’s Palsy — Nerve damage or paralysis of the arm or hand from improper delivery technique
- Other birth injuries such as visual impairment, organ damage or developmental disability
- Fetal death, stillbirth or neonatal death
- Injury or death of the mother from untreated conditions (hemorrhage, stroke, etc.)
Our trial attorneys know how to conduct the investigation to reveal the negligence of OB/GYN physicians, obstetric nurses and other medical personnel in prenatal care, labor and delivery, newborn care and neonatal intensive care.
When a child is injured during pregnancy our birth injury lawyers will not stop until we have answers from the medical professionals responsible for your care. Were the proper tests performed? Were measures taken to stave off premature birth? Did the nurses fail to notice fetal distress? Did the OB-GYN fail to perform an emergency C-section or cause injury when the baby was stuck in the birth canal?
Accountability For Medical Negligence During Childbirth
Birth injuries often create substantial financial burdens for the parents. We pursue damages for ongoing medical care, nursing care, and special services that the child may need into adulthood and beyond. We also pursue compensation for the parents’ emotional anguish and for the child’s lost opportunities in life.
We hire experts who will create a life care plan that will account for every single damage of the course of a child’s entire future so that we know when a case is finished that child will have care for the rest of his or her life.
