Albany Infant Birth Injury Attorneys

Giving birth is one of the greatest moments in life. However, if something goes wrong because the doctors or nurses fail to provide proper care, serious injury, permanent disability or even the death of a newborn can occur.

Causes of Infant Birth Injury

Although not all birth injuries are avoidable, there are critical moments during which medical negligence sometimes occurs. Some of these include:

  • delayed cesarean section for breech delivery
  • failure to recognize fetal or maternal distress
  • oxygen deprivation
  • bacterial or viral infections from unclean instruments
  • excessive force during delivery
  • negligence in treating distress of the newborn after birth

Both the newborn and mother may suffer severe injury. A newborn has an increased risk for injury or disability as organ systems are fragile. Fractures, Cerebral Palsy, Erbs or Brachial Plexus Palsy, Brain injury and Shoulder Dystocia are some examples of injuries that can occur through medical negligence.

If your newborn has been hurt or is suffering following birth, and you believe something has happened that shouldn’t have, it is crucial that you consult with an experienced attorney who can determine whether there was substandard medical care and has the experience and resources to successfully recover damages on behalf of your child. Experienced legal counsel can determine if the care was the result of negligence, and help you to obtain full compensation for injury or damage for:

  • past and future medical expenses
  • past and future loss of earnings
  • the cost of future care (i.e., aides, devices, counseling, physical therapy, tutoring)
  • conscious pain and suffering
  • loss of services
