Representing the Families of Children Injured During Labor
Most babies are delivered without complication. But when problems do arise during pregnancy or delivery, they can result in serious injury to the child. If your baby was born with a serious injury, disability or infection, do not automatically assume that it was because of a congenital defect or unavoidable complication. When obstetricians, gynecologists and doctors fail to follow proper standards of care during labor and delivery, birth injuries can result.
At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., in New York City, our birth injury lawyers represent families of children who were seriously injured or died during pregnancy, labor or delivery because of the negligence of health care providers. If you suspect that your child was injured during birth, contact us online or call 212-750-1200 or 1.888.4.TGLLAW to schedule a free consultation.
Injuries Resulting From Hospital Malpractice and Medical Negligence
Many things can go wrong during delivery. Improper attention to fetal monitors can lead to a failure to recognize fetal distress or pregnancy-induced hypertension. Birth injuries can result from oxygen deficiencies, uterine ruptures and other labor and delivery negligence. Delays in ordering a C-section can require high-risk surgical extraction and a whole range of potential injuries to the fetus.
At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, our attorneys recognize that medical negligence can cause a wide range of birth injuries, including:
- Excessive newborn jaundice
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Brain damage
