Birth Injury

Manhattan, New York City Birth Injury Lawyers

Medical malpractice can have tragic consequences under any circumstance.  However, when medical malpractice occurs during the birth of a child, it can destroy a fragile young life and have devastating emotional, psychological, and financial effects on family members.  In many cases, birth injuries are entirely preventable and are solely the result of incompetent medical care.
At the Manhattan law office of David Horowitz, PC, our New York City birth injury lawyers are guided by the principle that the rights of the injured must be protected by those with the skill and integrity to do so.  This philosophy holds particularly true when we are asserting the rights of a helpless, defenseless child.  By taking a stand against negligent medical professionals, we are able both to secure compensation for birth injury victims and their families and to send a powerful message to the healthcare industry.  Even if a very small minority of practitioners fail to provide care of an acceptable standard, even one preventable birth injury is one too many.

Birth Injury

The successful birth of a healthy child often depends on the ability of medical caregivers to respond quickly and appropriately to potential complications.  Most of these complications occur routinely enough that doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, and other professionals should be able to anticipate and react properly to them at any time during a delivery, without fail.  Unfortunately, there are some professionals who do not exercise due care, resulting in harm to the baby.

A child’s birth injury can range from temporary bruising of the head and face to more serious conditions such as cerebral palsy, brachial plexus, traumatic brain injuryspinal cord injury, and even wrongful death.

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a disorder in which a child suffers developmental difficulties, specifically with regard to the ability to move, due to damage to the brain.  This damage can occur before birth (often due to an untreated infection) or during birth.  In many cases, with proper care, cerebral palsy can be prevented with proper medical attention and care.  Although cerebral palsy is not progressive, it is also not curable.  In severe cases, the disorder can impose overwhelming demands, financial and otherwise, on families.

Brachial Plexus

Brachial plexus is among the most preventable birth injuries.  When the nerves that connect a baby’s arm to the spinal column are damaged, it can result in permanent paralysis of the arms and hands and, in some cases, the face.
