Birth Injuries

Each year, thousands of children are born with birth injuries that may have lifelong implications for the child and for the child’s family. These injuries have a devastating impact on the family as the medical bills rise and as the child learns to cope with the inflicted disability.  In many cases, such birth injuries are the result of medical negligence and might have been avoided with proper care.

The New York birth injury lawyers at The Sanders Firm are committed to gaining justice on behalf of victims of medical negligence by helping them to recover both the financial and emotional costs incurred.  For decades we have advocated for victims of otherwise preventable birth injuries committed as a result failing to identify and manage fetal distress in a manner consistent with professional standards.

If your child has been born with a birth injury, and you believe such injury may be the result of medical malpractice or negligence, you may be eligible for compensation for pain and suffering, costs of rehabilitation, past and future medical expenses and other economic losses.

Compensable birth injuries include:

Though some birth injuries are purely physical, others may lead to physical and developmental disabilities which may affect the victim for life.

Liability for damages in birth injuries

Medical professionals present during delivery are charged with the task of identifying the warning signs that would help avoid birth injuries. Conditions include:

When these conditions are identified early, doctors may perform a c section or take other evasive measures to avoid a bad outcome for the newborn. Yet each year, millions of dollars are paid out to the victims. Read more about c-section mistakes.
