New York Birth Injury Lawyer
Legal Experience Backed by Over $1 Billion in Recoveries
There is nothing more painful than watching your own child cope with a preventable birth injury. As a parent, you want the best care and treatment for your child, and if a medical professional is to blame for your child’s injury, it is understandable that you may be angry, frustrated, and overwhelmed. We also know that you are probably worried about how you will care for a child with birth injuries. A child with birth injuries or brain damage from birth may have special needs.
If your child has suffered a birth injury, they may require constant medical care, disability equipment, accommodations, and special education. As the parent and caregiver, your ability to work and where you are able to live may be affected. You may also worry about who will care for your child throughout their lives. The damages caused to you by a midwife’s or obstetrician’s medical malpractice can be life changing, not only for your child but for you and your whole family.
We are available to answer your questions – call our New York birth injury attorney at 212-227-4000.

What Kind of Claim Can I File?
If your doctor, surgeon, obstetrician, gynecologist, nurse, midwife, or anesthesiologist acted below the usual and customary standard of care, and your child suffered brain damage or birth injuries as a result, there is probably no question that you have the right to sue. Taking legal action should not be intimidating. You have the right to sue and have your child compensated for injuries suffered at someone else’s hands. A medical license is not a license to inflict damage.
Like everyone else, medical practitioners are required to pay for the negligent damage they cause. Our New York City personal injury lawyers at Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. are not afraid to have members of the medical profession answer in court for their acts of malpractice, as we have done repeatedly throughout our years of practice.
Your child is entitled to receive money for the pain, suffering, injuries and disabilities that medical malpractice caused. In addition, your child is entitled to money to pay for services he or she is proven to need because of those injuries and disabilities. This can include lifelong medical care, nursing care, special needs accommodations, housing, disability transportation, special education, medicines, medical equipment, caregivers and aides, and much more.
Examples of medical malpractice during pre-natal care, delivery, and neonatal care can include:
