Managing Obstetrician Malpractice And Hospital Negligent Claims
Lifelong consequences may result from errors made during childbirth or during prenatal or postnatal care. If you feel that an error was made by your delivery team, obstetrician or other medical professional, it is important to speak with a medical malpractice attorney who can be informative and advise your next steps in a timely and compassionate manner.
At Breslin & Breslin, our attorneys in Hackensack can help you determine what went wrong and why. If you have a case, we can help you pursue compensation and justice for a severe birth injury. Our firm has been helping people in Bergen County and throughout northern New Jersey hold negligent medical professionals accountable for decades.
Collaboration With Experts | Comprehensive Investigations
Our experience with the investigation and proof of medical malpractice claims in birth injury cases can help you find out whether a physician’s negligence entitles your family to financial compensation. Every case we handle is a serious case with serious implications. We collaborate with experts in a variety of fields to evaluate birth injuries and prosecute for recovery on behalf of our clients.
Birth injury cases can be complex and our attorneys will fight aggressively to recover the maximum compensation possible including a settlement for $2.35 Million for a wrongful birth/failure to vaccinate for Rubella case.
Our work in birth injury cases includes investigating and building solid cases around such complications as:
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder dystocia or Erb’s palsy
- Lack of oxygen to the fetal brain during birth
- “Wrongful birth” cases resulting from negligent prenatal care or misdiagnosis of medical conditions
- Delay in ordering a cesarean section after complications in delivery became apparent
- Injuries to the mother
- Anoxia secondary to fetal distress
Some birth injuries result from unnecessary delays of procedures such as ordering or performing an emergency cesarean section. Others result from improper fetal heart monitoring, failure to respond to other signs of fetal distress during the birthing process or postnatal care. It is critical to consult a knowledgeable attorney who handles such cases regularly to gain a full understanding of your rights and legal options.
