Understanding The Standards Of Care Regarding Birth Injuries
Were your child’s injuries the result of negligence on the part of a medical professional? A doctor or medical professional may be negligent if he or she failed to follow the appropriate standards of care. This can be a confusing subject, especially for new parents with an injured child.

With more than 60 years of experience handling birth injury cases in New York, we can provide you with straightforward answers to your questions and help you fight for compensation for your child’s injuries.
What Is The Standard Of Care?
In order to understand whether a medical professional is at fault for your child’s injuries, you have to determine whether he or she failed to provide the standard of care expected in your situation. Generally, the standard of care is defined as the actions that a competent medical professional with similar training and in the community would take under similar circumstances. Whether your doctor, nurse or medical facility failed to provide the standard of care in your birth injury case will depend on the type of treatment you received and the specific facts in your situation.
There are many areas where things can fall below the standards of care. Our lawyers are experienced in investigating these situations. We will diligently research and investigate the circumstances that led to your child’s injuries, and we will work to establish liability in order to secure the compensation you need to cover past and future medical expenses.
