Aggressive, Diligent New York Birth Trauma Lawyers Who Understand Your Pain as a Parent

When an obstetrician or other member of an OB/GYN department staff botches a birth by injuring the baby during delivery-using too much force, administering dangerous drugs that make the baby sick or making other delivery room mistakes-your baby's entire future quality of life is on the line. If the obstetrician or birthing room assistant pulled on the baby's neck as it came down the birth canal, the baby may have shoulder dystocia, which leads to brachial palsy. This condition involves severe nerve damage at the base of the neck, which can mean your child can't walk or has paralyzed arms and hands.

Or perhaps a pediatric neurologist informed you that your baby has cerebral palsy, neonatal encephalopathy or hypoxic ischemic brain injury. All of these conditions are motion disorders that impair a baby's mobility and brain function. Motor skills do not develop normally in these kids, and they may have severely damaged neurological function in terms of communication, behavior, intellectual development and perception.
