NYC / Long Island Birth Injury Lawyers

Birth injuries are devastating, but they are far more common than most realize. These injuries encompass a myriad of health concerns, and it causes parents stress, fear, and horror. Welcoming a child into the world is one of the most beautiful, joyous moments of a parent’s life. The realization your baby was injured during delivery is heartbreaking, and it causes parents to remember this moment as one of sadness and horror rather than what it really is. Birth injuries caused by negligence are even worse for families to comprehend as they are caused by the healthcare providers who are there to help make this moment easier and more enjoyable for you.

Causes of Birth Injuries

Anything could cause birth injuries, and there are no limitations to what might cause this kind of problem in the lives of a baby and its parents. However, there are a handful of very common situations in which birth injuries occur.

  • Improper monitoring
  • Improper use of forceps
  • Improper issuance of delivery room drugs
  • Failure to comply with delivery room rules
  • Delayed C-sections
  • Poorly performed medical operations
  • Improper use of delivery room technique

These are all issues that can be easily prevented when the delivery room team is doing their job correctly, and the results of these mistakes can be life-altering for both you and your baby. These issues in the delivery room are known to cause injuries to the baby’s skull, brain damage, hypoxia, and even cerebral palsy. Some babies don’t live through their injuries, and now you have a wrongful death on your hands.

Negligence in the Delivery Room

Do you suspect your baby’s injuries are a result of negligence in the delivery room? If so, you have to abide by the statute of limitations to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. It’s imperative you contact a birth injury attorney to walk you through this process and help you make this situation a little better.

    “Steven Raiser's law firm handled my case with excellence throughout the process. I had a SBA EIDL loan that got transferred to the Department of Treasury unexpectedly, and had a 30% penalty added to the amount due, and due very quickly, which was very stressful. After talking with Steven Raiser, and working with Harry Gill, who was absolutely brilliant in working with me and preparing the case, they were able to recall the case to the SBA. They were always available quickly, to address my concerns. Having dealt with some law firms before, I really appreciated this.
