Medical malpractice takes many forms, but birth injuries and the problems they cause can be particularly difficult for families to deal with. Sadly, these incidents continue to take place at an unacceptable rate in New York, NY, and across the United States. On top of fetal death, other complications that may result from problems during childbirth include Erb’s palsy and cerebral palsy. At the law offices of Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld LLP, we strongly believe that those who are responsible for birth injuries that should have been prevented must be held accountable.
Our law firm understands how painful these injuries often are for children and we remain committed to working for the justice they deserve. Birth injuries can create permanent physical and mental challenges for children and we think that it is particularly troubling when injuries stem from negligence or medical errors. Although it is impossible to prevent each and every birth injury from occurring, medical professionals who are responsible for injuries that never should have taken place cannot be let off the hook.
While birth injuries can lead to serious problems that affect a child throughout their life, they may also be very hard for parents to cope with as well. In addition to severe emotional pain, these cases can also present significant financial challenges. After all, with medical expenses, time away from work to care for a child and other hardships, the costs associated with birth injuries can be staggering.
