All parents wish for their children to be born in perfect health and without complications. Unfortunately in some cases, the actions or inaction of an emergency room, hospital or delivery room doctor may have caused your child to start his or her life with catastrophic injuries. Serving New York communities for over 60 years, our lawyers at Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, handle a wide range of medical negligence and birth injury cases. We are committed to seeking compensation and justice for the losses your entire family has suffered due to the injured child.
There are many different types of birth injury situations that may arise before, during, or after the actual birth, such as:
- Brain injuries
- Cerebral palsy diagnosis
- Hypoxia/oxygen deprivation
- Erb's palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Fetal death
- Mental retardation
The Emotional Costs Concerning Birth Injuries
Birth injury cases are especially traumatic on parents. When dealing with the mistakes or negligence of a doctor, you need an attorney whom you can rely on. We work to help our clients deal with the trauma by ensuring their rights are protected by meticulously laying-out their case, investigating and examining every aspect of the birth injury; from determinations of liability to sources of compensation, to the presentation of a compelling case, whether at the negotiating table or in the courtroom.
Birth injuries have life-altering and long-lasting repercussions for the child and his or her family. We work with doctors, nurses and long-term care experts to accurately calculate the amount of compensation for the expenses your child will need. Negligent doctors and other medical staff need to be held accountable for the situation that has caused your child's birth injury and for failing to provide the necessary standard of care.
