Birth Injury Lawyers NYC
Birth injuries can completely destroy the life of a child. Although medical professionals are trained to handle difficult births so that injuries do not occur, mistakes still happen. Whether the injury is the result of excessive force being used on the fetus during delivery or improper administration of delivery procedures, these cases are still considered to be negligence on the part of the medical staff. The unfortunate end result is that the child may end up paralyzed due to Erb’s Palsy.
Birth injuries are often readily apparent following birth. However, some birth injuries may have a delayed onset and do not become apparent until the child is at least one year of age. This is why it is important to seek out the assistance of a competent medical negligence attorney as soon as possible following the injury so that you do not lose the right to pursue your claim.
