Manhattan Birth Injury Lawyer
Medical malpractice during the childbirth process or prenatal period can forever change the lives of your family. With the help of a birth injury attorney in Manhattan, you can hold them accountable.
For nine months or more, an expectant mother carries her child, anticipating the baby’s arrival. In most circumstances it’s a joyful occasion, but in some cases, this beautiful miracle of life can become tragic.
Whether you or your child sustained an injury during the prenatal period or during birth, the consequences can completely change your family’s future. If a doctor or healthcare provider was responsible, they need to be held accountable.
A Manhattan birth injury lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP will know the impact this type of malpractice can have on your family’s wellbeing and finances. We can help you get justice and the financial compensation you’ll need to secure your future.
Birth Injuries Take Many Forms
In any medical procedure there is a possibility for errors and negligence. During the prenatal period and birth, these mistakes are particularly devastating because both the mother and the infant can be hurt.
A birth injury can result in permanent disability for the mother or the child. Whether the medical provider was negligent during the pregnancy or made an error during the birthing process, the consequences can be dire and should be compensated.
These are just a few of the birth injuries we’ve helped families recover from:
- Birth defects caused by defective or incorrectly prescribed medication
- Forceps injuries
- Erb’s palsy
- Failure to diagnose a problem during pregnancy
- Broken bones and fractures
- C-section errors
Any of these injuries may cause long-lasting physical effects or worse. Even if the injuries can be recovered from, the emotional strain and distress you face may be just as bad. Your Manhattan birth injury lawyer can build a case demonstrating how the doctor or hospital was at fault, which will allow you to collect the most compensation possible from the malpractice insurer.
Compensation for a Birth Injury
Fighting for compensation can be a long, difficult process to tackle on your own. Large entities like hospitals and malpractice insurers will have an experienced legal team on hand—and they won’t have your family’s best interests in mind.
We won’t let them make your family a victim a second time. Your attorney will ensure that you recover the full compensation that you’re eligible for. We won’t be satisfied with the first settlement they offer, and neither should you.
These are just a few of the damages you might be eligible to claim:
- Medical bills, including those related to the birthing process and the cost of future care and needs
- Lost income if the injuries keep you from working, such as having stay at home full-time with your child
- Home renovations made necessary by the birth injury
- The pain and suffering of your family
- Emotional distress and disfigurement
- Lost enjoyment of life
